No other NFL player entered Sunday with more than 14. * The touchdown reception was Jackson's longest since an 81-yard touchdown at Philadelphia in Week 3. * Jackson enters Sunday evening leading the NFL in 50-yard receptions this season (eight). His 30 receptions of 50-plus yards since 2008 are the most in the NFL in that time frame. * With the first quarter touchdown pass, Griffin III joined Sammy Baugh, Sonny Jurgensen, Joe Theismann, Billy Kilmer, Mark Rypien, Eddie LeBaron, Jason Campbell, Gus Frerotte and Norm Snead as the only players to throw at least 40 career touchdowns as a member of the Redskins. * With the touchdown, Griffin III moved past Schroeder for sole possession of 10th most in team history. * The pass was the second-longest of in the career of Griffin III and his longest since his first touchdown pass of his career – an 88-yarder to Pierre Garçon in Week 1 of the 2012 season. * Running back Alfred Morris gained 43 yards on 12 carries to finish the season with 1,074 rushing yards on 265 carries.
