Redskins vs. Panthers by the numbers
—The Redskins rushed for 29 yards, their lowest total since Week 11 of last year. That game was against the Panthers. It was their worst rushing day against the team that was not Carolina since getting 27 yards against the Rams in 2014.
—Kirk Cousins passed for 315 yards. He broke his own team record for passing yards in a season, a mark he set last year. He now has 4,360 passing yards on the season with two games left.
—Cousins also tied his own team record with his seventh 300-yard passing day of the season.
—The Redskins recorded two sacks and they now have at least one sack in 22 consecutive games. No NFC team has a longer active streak; three AFC teams (Denver, Oakland, Cincinnati) have longer active streaks.
—The Redskins turned the ball over three times. That was their highest total since turning it over five times in Week 11 last year against, yes, the Panthers.
—The Redskins got no turnovers in a game for the fifth time this year.
