Research Notes

  • The Redskins are 3-0 in their last 3 games with a scoring margin of +11.0. The only teams with a perfect record with a better scoring margin over that span are the Patriots and Bengals.

  • From Elias: The duo of Alfred Morris and Robert Griffin III are likely going to shatter the mark for most combined rookie rushing yards in a season. With four games to play, the duo has rushed for 1,820 yards that's just 153 shy of the 1979 Rams record

  • The Redskins ran 32 of their 52 (61.5 percent) plays from the pistol formation Monday, their highest percentage of plays in that formation this season. The Redskins averaged 8.1 yards per play out of the pistol (second-highest this season) and collected 180 of their 207 rushing yards.--The Redskins have run a league-high 223 plays with a pistol formation this season (Bills are the next highest with 44 plays) and have averaged 6.0 yards per rush out of that formation.

  • Robert Griffin III completed 9-of-11 passes for 122 yards and a touchdown on play action Monday, including 7-of-7 when targeting Pierre Garcon. Nine of Griffin III's 17 touchdown passes this season have come on play-action (tied for fourth-most in the NFL), and no quarterback has used such plays on a higher percentage of their dropbacks than Griffin (40 percent).Over his last three games, Griffin has completed 23 of 28 (82.1 percent) play-action passes for 445 yards and six touchdowns.

  • Eli Manning was 4-of-13 for 131 yards on passes traveling 15 or more yards downfield Monday (0-5 when targeting Hakeem Nicks). Against the Redskins in Week 7, he was more efficient on such throws, going 3-5 for 129 yards including the game-winning 77-yard touchdown to Victor Cruz. The Giants are now 2-5 when Manning completes less than 50 percent of passes thrown 15 or more yards downfield, and 5-0 when he is above 50 percent.

  • From Elias: Lawrence Tynes has 32 FG this season, tied for the most through 12 team games in NFL history.

  • From Elias: The Redskins are the 1st team in NFL history to have a 2,000-yard rookie passer and 1,000-yard rookie rusher in the same season.
