Here is what you need to know on this Monday, November 30, seven days before the Washington Redskins host the Dallas Cowboys on Monday night football.
Notes and numbers from Redskins 20, Giants 14
— The win was the Redskins’ fifth straight at home. They have never won five in a row at home in a single season at FedEx Field. They last had that many straight wins at home in 1991 when they called RFK Stadium home.
—Kirk Cousins threw for 302 yards, his fourth game with over 300 yards this season. The last Redskins quarterback to have that many 300-yard games in a season was Brad Johnson in 1999.
—During the five-game home winning streak Cousins has completed 76 percent of his passes for 1,436 yards with 10 touchdowns and no interceptions. That comes to a passer rating of 114.4.
—Cousins threw a 63-yard touchdown pass to DeSean Jackson in the second quarter. It was Jackson’s 19th career touchdown covering 60 or more yards. That is the fourth-most all-time in the NFL. On the all-time list he trails Bobby Mitchell (20) by one and Jerry Rice (23) by four.
—Ryan Kerrigan recorded two sacks, giving him 44.5 for his career. That moved him past Monte Coleman and into third place on the Redskins all-time sack leaders (note that the NFL started keep sacks as an official stat in 1982).
