Against the Titans, Robinson posted a career-high and game-high 14 tackles. He became the first Redskins linebacker to record at least 14 total tackles in a game since Perry Riley, Jr. in Week 1 of the 2013 season.

The middle linebacker helped hold the Titans to 236 total yards, the fewest by the Titans this season and Tennessee's fewest since Week 6 of the 2013 season.

This marks the first NFC Defensive Player of the Week award of Robinson's career. He is the first member of the Redskins to earn the honor since cornerback DeAngelo Hall in Week 12 of the 2011 season.

Robinson is the first Redskins linebacker to earn the honor since Brian Orakpo in Week 4 of the 2011 season.

Redskins players have won 85 Player of the Week awards, including 34 NFC Defensive Player of the Week honors, since the NFL started awarding weekly honors in 1984.

Robinson and the Redskins next take on the Dallas Cowboys on Monday at AT&T Stadium.
