Research Notes

  • The Lions finally break through in Washington. Detroit had lost each of its last 18 road games against the Redskins, every single meeting since the Burgundy and Gold moved to Washington in 1937. The Lions 18-game road losing streak against the Skins was the second-longest in NFL history by any team against a single opponent.

  • For a moment, it appeared as though Aldrick Robinson had put the Redskins ahead with a 57-yard touchdown catch from Robert Griffin III. However, replay showed that Robinson had dropped the ball. After the play, the Redskins' win probability was 42.8%. Had it been caught/ruled a TD, Washington's win probability would have been 69.5%.

  • Matthew Stafford attempted more passes 15-plus yards downfield Sunday than he had in the first two games combined. Stafford went 4-of-5 to Calvin Johnson on those throws Sunday after going 0-of-4 in the Lions' first two games.

  • Robert Griffin III was sacked or under duress on 28% of his dropbacks Sunday, the highest pressure rate against him this season. Griffin was 3-of-10 for 34 yards and an interception when under duress Sunday.
