Week 8 Tidbits

  • The Skins have faced a top-10 ranked offense in five of their seven games this season. Washington's defense has held that team to a season-low in yardage on every occasion.
  • Detroit has been outscored 54-0 in the first quarter through 6 games.
  • Washington enters week 8 with the leagues 7th ranked offense, and 6th ranked defense.
  • Sunday breaks a streak of 51 straight Lion sellouts dating back to their final game at the Silverdome. (Today's game will be blacked out in the local Detroit market).
  • The Redskins set a (team) record last Sunday: they have gone 332 passing attempts without an interception, breaking the Raiders' record of 281 set in 2001. (Collaborative effort from Jason Campbell, Todd Collins, Clinton Portis, and Antwaan Randle El).
  • Chris Horton ranks 3rd in tackles amongst rookies this season.
  • The Redskins are one of just six teams with fewer than 10 sacks this season, while the Lions are only one of four teams to allow more than 20.
  • If Clinton Portis surpasses the 120 yard mark against Detroit, he will become the second player in NFL history to do so in 5 consecutive weeks for the second time in their career. (Joining O.J. Simpson).
  • A win today would mark Washington's third consecutive road victory, a feat that has not been repeated since 2005.
