Here is what you need to know on this Monday, October 20, seven days before the Washington Redskins travel to Dallas to play the Cowboys on Monday night football.
Numbers and notes from Redskins vs. Titans
—Kai Forbath’s 22-yard game-winning field goal was the second game-winner of his career and his first since his overtime game winner against the Ravens in 2012. It was his first game winner that moved his team from behind into the lead. The last time the Redskins won a game in regulation on a score with no time left was when Nick Novak kicked a field goal to beat the Cowboys in 2006 (the game with the blocked field goal and Sean Taylor return).
—Colt McCoy threw a 70-yard TD pass to Pierre Garçon on his second play from scrimmage. Not since Brandon Banks did it against the Patriots in 2011 has a Redskin thrown a touchdown pass on his first pass attempt with the team.
—McCoy Completed 11 of 12 passes for 128 yards and the one touchdown pass for a passer rating of 138.9.
—Niles Paul had a 50-yard reception from Kirk Cousins on the game’s opening drive, a career long reception for Paul.
—With Paul’s 50-yard catch and Garçon’s 70-yarder, the Redskins now have seven receptions of over 50 yards this year. The only had three such receptions all of last year and seven all year in 2012.
—The defense pitched in as well. They held Tennessee to 236 yards, their second-best performance in that stat of the season. Their best was the 148 yards they yielded to Jacksonville in Week 2.
—Washington got a takeaway in the second quarter on Bashaud Breeland’s first career interception. It was their first takeaway since the third quarter of their Week 4 game against the Giants.
—They added another takeaway in the late in the third quarter when Paul came up with a punt that was muffed by Titans returner Dexter McCluster.
