The most random Redskins who hold franchise records
Most passing yards in a game: Brad Johnson, 471 yards (1999)
NFL games are funny — no-name guys and middling veterans can put together dazzling numbers over the course of four quarters, numbers that even the most legendary players can't match. Brad Johnson's 471-yard output against the 49ers the day after Christmas in 1999 is a prime example; not one Redskins signal caller, from Baugh to Jurgensen to Theismann, has ever compiled more yards in 60 minutes than the journeyman passer. That's some obscure trivia you can use to impress your buddies.
Most consecutive completions in a game: Mark Brunell, 22 (2006)
Mark Brunell and his Redskins receivers were locked in against the Texans in September 2006: The lefty QB connected with his targets on 22 straight attempts during the 31-15 victory in Houston. A roughing-the-passer call erased an incompletion that would've stopped the streak at 21, but Brunell recovered and tacked on an extra for No. 22. That's efficiency.
Highest single-game completion percentage: Robert Griffin III, 93.3 % (2012)
Anytime you do something at a 93.3 percent clip, you're doing something well. Robert Griffin III took his fair share of criticism for his work through the air during his time in D.C., but against the Eagles in November 2012, there wasn't much to gripe about (well, he did go 14-out-of-15 when throwing, so there was one pass that you could complain over). Overall, it's the seventh-best completion percentage in league history, and the best when it comes to the Burgundy and Gold.
Most receiving yards in a game: Anthony Allen, 255 yards (1987)
For his career, Anthony Allen had 767 receiving yards. Amazingly, 255 of those came in a single game for the Redskins — in three quarters, to be exact. The wideout was actually a replacement player during the 1987 league strike, and in a matchup against the Cardinals, he hauled in eight passes to go along with three scores and a new team record. Gary Clark checks in behind Allen with 241.
Longest field goal: Graham Gano, 59 yards (2011)
The often inconsistent Gano booted his way into team history with a 59-yarder against the Niners in November 2011. He was kicking into the wind, too, and celebrated afterward like he had just won a heated eBay auction. Washington would end up losing, however, 19-11.
Most receptions in a game: Roy Helu, 14 (2011)
Gano's field goal wasn't the only record-breaking effort by a Redskin in that contest with San Francisco: running back Roy Helu got his hands on 14 John Beck (shivers) passes to surpass the mark of 13 once set by Art Monk and Kelvin Bryant respectively. Those 14 receptions account for more than 10 percent of his career total.
Most rushing yards in a game: Gerald Riggs, 221 yards (1989)
John Riggins? Nah. Alfred Morris? Nope. Clinton Portis? Sorry. This one belongs to Gerald Riggs, who was a three-time Pro Bowler for the Falcons before coming to Washington in the late '80s. In a 42-37 loss to the Eagles, Riggs ripped off 221 yards on 29 attempts. Cliff Battles, who had 215 yards in 1933, is second in this category.
Most consecutive field goals to start a career: Kai Forbath, 17 (2012)
Rookie kickers are usually shaky. Kai Forbath wasn't, though. After replacing a struggling Billy Cundiff early on in the 2012 campaign, Forbath stepped up and nailed his first 17 career field goals, including his debut attempt, which was a 50-yarder, and an overtime winner versus the Ravens. The end of his Burgundy and Gold career didn't match the start, but he does hold a record that'll be tough to top.
Highest win-percentage as a coach: Dudley DeGroot, 73.7% (1944-1945)
When it comes to winning percentage while coaching the Redskins, no one is better than Dudley DeGroot (yes, that is the name of an actual person and not a cartoon dog). Sure, he only coached parts of two seasons, but he did go 14-5-1 in 1944 and 1945, good for a 73.7 percent victory rate. Joe Gibbs has the most wins, but the best win/loss ratio is DeGroot's.
