Redskins punter Tress Way has etched his name in the team’s record books with his 135th punt inside the 20-yard line, passing Matt Turk for the franchise mark.
Way led the NFL in the category last year with 41, when he was the only punter in the league without a single touchback all season. He only landed one inside the 20 on five attempts in Week 1 against the Eagles, but took advantage of his first opportunity Sunday to pin the Cowboys on their own six-yard line for their first drive of the game.
The 29-year-old was claimed off waivers from the Bears in 2014 and has started every game for the Redskins since. Washington signed him to a five-year, $7,585,000 extension ahead of the 2016 season that has him locked up with D.C. through next year.
Way has never made a Pro Bowl in his six-year career, but was named the NFC Special Teams Player of the Week in Week 10 last season after placing four punts inside the 20 in a 16-3 win over the Buccaneers.
