Here is what you need to know on this Tuesday, October 7, five days before the Washington Redskins go to Arizona to play the Cardinals.
Redskins-Seahawks game notes and numbers
—After catching a 60-yard touchdown pass from Kirk Cousins in the second quarter, DeSean Jackson now has 19 total touchdowns covering 50 yards or more in his career. That’s the most in the NFL since he came into the league in 2008.
—Jackson gained a season high 157 yards receiving. That was his second 100-yard receiving game this season (he had 117 against the Eagles), and the 22nd of his career.
—Ryan Kerrigan posted his sixth sack of the season, tying him for the NFL lead. He now has 30 in his career. It was one of three sacks on the night for the Redskins. They are now fifth in the NFL with 14 sacks.
—The Seahawks won despite being hit for 13 penalties for 90 yards. Washington had just three for 30 yards.
—One of the reasons why Seattle was able to absorb the penalty yardage was because they had a decided field position advantage. The Seahawks’ drives started at their own 35 on average; the Redskins’ started at their own 17.
—The play of Russell Wilson would have enabled the Seahawks to overcome almost anything. He had a passer rating of 127.3 and 122 yards rushing. Only one other time has a quarterback had over 120 rushing yards and a passer rating of over 125 in a game. That was Randall Cunningham of the Eagles against the Patriots in 1990.
