Redskins vs Giants by the numbers
—By finishing at 8-7-1 after last year's 9-7 finish the Redskins posted their first back-to-back winning seasons since 1996-1997. But they were unable to make the playoffs in consecutive seasons for the first time since 1991-1992.
—The Redskins had 284 total offensive yards, pushing their season total to 6,454 yards, breaking the franchise record set in 1989.
—Eight Redskins finished with 500 or more yards from scrimmage (Jackson, Garçon, Crowder, Kelley, Thompson, Reed, Davis, and Jones). That ties for the most 500-yard performers on one team in NFL history (2011 Saints).
—For the season, the Redskins averaged 6.4 yards per play, the highest in team history. That average is the 11th highest of any NFL team since the 1970 merger.
—Kirk Cousins broke his own team record in pass attempts (606), completions (406), and passing yards (4,917).
—Pierre Garçon and DeSean Jackson both went over 1,000 yards receiving on the season. It’s the first time since 1999 that the team has had two 1,000-yard receivers in the same season (Michael Westbrook, Albert Connell).
—Dustin Hopkins kicked his 34th field goal of the season in the third quarter, breaking the team record of 33 set by Mark Moseley in 1983.
—Ryan Kerrigan started all 16 games this season as he has in all six seasons he has been in the league. He is the first Redskin to start all 16 games in the first six seasons of his career since the advent of the 16-game schedule in 1978.
