Research Notes

  • From Elias: Both rookie quarterbacks for the Redskins (Robert Griffin III and Kirk Cousins) threw TD passes on Sunday. According to Elias, that's the first time two rookie QBs threw a TD pass for the same team in the same game since the merger. The last time it happened in the NFL? Oct. 10, 1965 the Cowboys Jerry Rhome threw one TD pass and Craig Morton threw two in a 35-24 loss to the Eagles.

  • Alfred Morris had 122 yards on 23 rushes with a touchdown and seven first downs. Sunday marked the third game in a row that Morris rushed for over 110 yards, and it was his fifth game this season with more than five rushing first downs, a total that trails only Arian Foster and Stevan Ridley.

  • Pierre Garcon caught five of his nine targets Sunday for 87 yards and the game-tying touchdown pass from Kirk Cousins with 0:29 left in the fourth quarter. Garcon was active for only his seventh game of the season, and the Redskins are 6-1 with Garcon active (1-5 without Garcon). In the last three weeks, Garcon has caught 17-of-26 targets for 279 yards and a touchdown in each game.

  • Joe Flacco was 4-of-7 for 85 yards and all three touchdowns on throws deeper than 10 yards downfield, but only attempted one of those throws in the second half (25-yard overthrow targeting Dennis Pitta on the first play from scrimmage in overtime). Flacco entered the day with a 39.3 completion percentage on those throws this season, worst among qualified quarterbacks.

  • Joe Flacco was excellent in the first half, completing 10-of-13 passes for 127 yards and three touchdowns. Flacco faced four or fewer pass rushers on 10 of his 13 first-half dropbacks and was not sacked. In the second half, the Redskins sent extra pressure on 5-of-11 dropbacks, holding Flacco to 55 passing yards with an interception and two sacks.

  • From Elias: Kai Forbath has made his first 14 career FG attempts without a miss. That's the 3rd-longest streak of FG made without a miss to begin a career since the merger.

  • Kirk Cousins is the 1st non-starter to throw a game-tying TD pass in the final minute of regulation AND go on to win in OT since Derek Anderson for the Browns in 2006 against the Chiefs.
