5 stats to follow entering Cowboys/Redskins on Monday night:
Take 2- A series of two's can become reality. Washington can win two straight games for the first time this season. Kirk Cousins can win two consecutive games for the first time in his career and the Redskins can win two straight Monday night football games for the first time since two Monday night victories in 1991.
Not Ready for Primetime?- The Redskins are 1-8 in their last nine primetime games, 2-8 in their last 10 Monday night games, and Washington's 4-18 primetime record since 2008 is tied for the second-worst winning percentage among all NFL teams.
Home free- Kirk Cousins has thrown 173 consecutive passes at home without an interception. The Cowboys have forced seven total turnovers (fewest in the NFL) and Dallas is 1-6 when forcing zero takeaways this season.
Read Al-fred about it- Could this be the game Alfred Morris scores a rushing touchdown? Morris has no rushing touchdowns in 135 carries this season. In six career games against Dallas, Morris has seven rushing touchdowns on 127 carries.
Good company- Ryan Kerrigan is one sack from reaching 7.5 sacks this season. Kerrigan would become the first player with 7.5 sacks in each of his first 5 NFL seasons since DeMarcus Ware between 2005 and 2009.
