  • Roy Helu stepped up in place of the injured Alfred Morris.
  • Robert still looked rusty in this game, but he did not have any turnovers today. He looks like he is improving. He had 217 passing yards with a TD.
  • The Redskins ran the football more in this game with 32 attempts for 122 yards.
  • The Raiders had 3 turnovers compared to the Redskins 1 turnover. Winning the turnover battle is the first step to winning games.
