Welcome to preseason installment three of the 2010 Washington Redskins' Key Stats Tracker, a weekly feature focusing on three specific statistical categories—turnover differential, third-down-efficiency and red-zone-efficiency—plus any specific observations/anomalies that stand out from any given game.

This week we look at the Redskins' 16-11 road win over head coach Rex Ryan's big bad (just ask them) New York Jets last Friday night.

And yes, I will let it go now.

Quick Notes:

● W/L record of team that forces more turnovers: 3-0.

● The Redskins defensive 3rd down efficiency coming into this one was an impressive 2-20 (10%), with complete-game one-hitters against both Buffalo and Baltimore.

This weeks' 5-13 (38%) is a little more to the norm, but it is worth noting that in the first half, with "starters playing against starters," the Jets offense converted only 1 of 6 (17%) third down opportunities.

It is also worth noting that in the second half, the Jets' first-team offense converted on 3-of-4 (75%) against the Redskin second team defense. Which is, you know, big and bad.

Okay now I'll let it go.

● Field goal kicker Graham Gano quietly went 3-3 on the evening, including efforts from 41 and 42 yards with the game still in question. Surprisingly, NFL.com does not show field goal highlights unless they are...

I love it. the "big and bad" jets. I was watching Hard Knocks last night and he was SO worried about losing his second preseason game and the 3rd stringers were SO bad that he put his 2nd string back in because "Im not losing this ****ing game". WOW! instead of trying to work with the 3rd string and realizing its a horrible game anyways (9-3) his ego wouldnt let him do that.

and I loved that TD by London although it looked to me more like he surfed in on a wave of Redskins. That was a special one to me as well..
Yeah, I would be remiss to say I wouldn't care if we didn't win in pre-season. I don't like to see the Redskins lose. With that said, I like seeing the Redskins coaching staff play every player to see what they have. Rex just wanted to win that game against Carolina to satisfy his ego. That is why I did not want us to lose the Jets game. Don't normally care as much, but I want to see his reaction in the next episode of Hard Knocks. Arrogant *******! Not a huge fan of reality shows, but I can't wait to see what he has to say about this game on Wednesday.
