Above everything else that takes place on Sunday, the Washington Redskins need a win. The Redskins can achieve that goal with superb play from all three facets: offense, defense and special teams.
To get a complete, 60-minute effort though, the Redskins will need their leaders to step up. Said leaders could hit a few individual milestones this afternoon at FedExField.
Take a look at what marks could be hit below.
–It takes two baby. If Fred Davis gets just two receiving yards he’ll have 2,000 for his career.
–With time, everything gets better. NFL Ironman London Fletcher is one of the greatest success stories in history—and that’s beyond the sports realm. If he gets an interception this afternoon he’ll tie Rich Milot for fourth-most in franchise history.
–Passing everyone by. If Robert Griffin III records another 300-yard game through the air, he’ll join Sonny Jurgensen, Joe Theismann, Jay Schroeder, Mark Rypien and Brad Johnson as the only quarterbacks in franchise history to record four 300-yard passing games in a season.
–Why not an encore performance for the Redskins faithful this afternoon, DeAngelo? If Hall takes a fumble recovery to the house, he’ll tie Jessie Tuggle for the most fumble returns for a touchdown (five) in NFL history.
–It’s not the size of the dog in the fight, but the size of the fight in the dog. Santana Moss will go down as one of the greatest in franchise history. On Sunday, he could join two of the 80 Greatest in reception and yardage records. No. 89 needs 71 receiving yards for 10,000 in his career and four receptions to pass Gary Clark for third-most in franchise history.
Thanks to the always hard-working Redskins Public Relations stats for compiling these numbers and records.
