Entering Sunday, Cousins was tied for second-most such games among NFL players this season, trailing only Carolina's Cam Newton (six, entering Sunday). * Tight end Jordan Reed led the Redskins with nine receptions for 120 yards with a touchdown. *
The 100-yard receiving game was the third of Reed's career and his first of the season. It was the first 100-yard receiving game by a non-running back for the Redskins since Week 16 last season (DeSean Jackson vs. Philadelphia). * In two career games against Chicago, Reed has now caught 18 passes for 254 yards with two touchdowns, exceeding the 100-yard mark in both contests. * Reed scored on a five-yard touchdown pass from Cousins in the third quarter.

In the previous 12 games, the Redskins had only gained seven or more first downs in the entire first quarter once (eight vs. New Orleans). * Washington's 11 first-quarter first downs were the most by the team in an opening quarter in records available dating back to 1991. * Running back Pierre Thomas made his Redskins debut, catching one pass for 12 yards. * The Redskins scored a touchdown on both their opening drive of the game and their opening drive of the second half, marking the first time the team had scored an opening-drive touchdown in both halves since Nov. 29, 2009 at Philadelphia. * The Redskins scored multiple rushing touchdowns for the second time this season (Week 2 vs. St. Louis, two). * The Redskins gained a season-high 10 rushing first downs, the team's most since Week 2 last season vs. Jacksonville (12).
