After a thrilling 31-30 comeback win for the Redskins, CSN stat guru Rich Goldberg has the five most important, and unique, stats from the big victory.
You like that!- In the Redskins 84-year history, they’ve trailed by 24 points in 126 games. Washington had lost all of those games until Sunday. Kirk Cousins led the Redskins to their biggest comeback in team history, and in doing so Washington became the fourth team in the last 25 seasons to win when the opponent scored the first 24 or more points.
Completed effort- Kirk Cousins tied a single-game team record with 33 completions held by Jason Campbell in a 2007 game against the Cowboys. To put this in perspective, Joe Theismann never had more than 28 completions in a game. Mark Rypien's career-high for the Redskins was 30 completions.
Breaking the "Morris" code- The Redskins won for the first time in 18 games (1-17) in which Alfred Morris ran the ball 14 times or fewer. As a team, the Redskins defeated the Bucs with 50 total rushing yards, Washington's fewest in a win since 2007 against the Bears.
Onside attack- The Redskins became the first NFL team to recover an onside kick this season -- teams entered Sunday's games 0 for 24. It was Washington's first recovery of an onside kick since Rock Cartwright grabbed an onside kick against the Jets in 2007.
No punting allowed- Excluding the kneel down, the Redskins scored on each of their 2nd half possessions (TD, TD, FG, TD). 3rd downs went a long way to that goal. After going 0 for 5 in the first half, Washington spiked its performance, converting 5 of 6 third downs in the second half.
