Redskins vs Eagles by the numbers

—Cousins passed for 234 yards, moving his total for the season to 4,045 yards. He passed Brad Johnson for the third-most passing yards in a single season in team history.
—Cousins is now the first Redskins quarterback with multiple 4,000-yard seasons.
—DeSean Jackson caught an 80-yard touchdown pass from Cousins in the third quarter. It was Jackson’s 22nd touchdown play of 60 yards or more. He is now in second place all time in that category, one behind Jerry Rice.
—DeSean Jackson has the most 50+-yard catches for the Eagles in the last 40 years with 22. He also has the most 50+ yard receptions in the last 40 years against the Eagles with four.
—Rob Kelley had a 22-yard touchdown run in the second quarter and Chris Thompson ran 25 yards for a TD in the fourth quarter. It was the first time that the Redskins have had multiple players with touchdown runs of 20 yards or longer in the same game since Week 7 of the 1991 season.
—Ryan Kerrigan got a sack and forced a fumble on the Eagles’ last offensive play. He now has 19 career forced fumbles, tied with Peanut Tillman for the second-most in the NFL since Kerrigan entered the league in 2011.
—The Redskins got a total of four sacks against the Eagles. They have at least one sack in 21 straight games, the longest active streak in the NFC and the fourth-longest in the NFL.
