  • The Redskins fell to 4-1 against defending Super Bowl champions on Monday Night Football. The Redskins had previously won Monday night games against the Dallas Cowboys in 1978, the Cowboys in 1993, the St. Louis Rams in 2000 and the New York Giants in 2012.
  • The Redskins did not turn the ball over for the second time in five games this season. The Redskins had only one zero-turnover game a season ago.
  • The Redskins extended their NFL-best sellout streak to 388 games, including postseason play.

Offense:

  • The 100-yard receiving game was the 22nd of Jackson's career and his second as a member of the Redskins.

Quarterback Kirk Cousins completed 21-of-36 passes for 283 yards with two touchdowns and a passer rating of 102.0.

Including an 81-yard touchdown pass between the two in Week 3 at Philadelphia, Cousins and Jackson have been responsible for the Redskins' two longest plays of the season. * Cousins and Jackson connected for a 57-yard gain on the first play from scrimmage in the second half. Jackson's two long receptions now give him 25 receptions of 50 yards or more since 2008, the most in the NFL. * Wide receiver Andre Roberts third reception of the game came in the third quarter and went for six yards on first-and-10. Prior to the play, including two receptions in the first half, all 12 of Roberts' receptions this season had resulted in either first downs or a touchdown.
