Redskins by the numbers, Week 13
1—The number of Redskins currently on the roster who are over the age of 27 who have attempted or caught a pass or has a rushing attempt. The one is Santana Moss.
12—The number of players the Redskins have on injured reserve. That does not count Jammal Brown, who technically is on the Reserve/Physically Unable to Perform list.
12.5—Robert Griffin III’s average yards per pass attempt when throwing with play action. He averages 5.7 yards per pass when he doesn’t use play action.
19—The number of touchdowns the Redskins have scored on 35 red zone possessions. They scored 21 all of last year (on 51 possessions).
27—The number of points the Redskins’ opponents have scored off of turnovers. Last year through 11 games they had given up 63 points off of turnovers.
47.3—The Redskins’ third down conversion percentage over their last two games. Their season conversion rate is 31.9%.
235—The number of rushing attempts that Alfred Morris had as a senior last year at Florida Atlantic. His college career high is 263 carries in 2009 as a sophomore. Morris has 208 carries this, his rookie NFL season.
295—The number of points the Redskins have scored in their 11 games this season. The scored 288 in 16 games last year.
558—The number of receiving yards that team leader Leonard Hankerson will have this year if he stays on his current pace. That would be the fewest receiving yards needed to lead the Redskins since Bill Anderson led them with 488 yards in 1960. That was in a 12-game season.
The Redskins' final 2016 NFL preseason game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers has been moved a day earlier and will be held on Wednesday, August 31.
Impending incliment weather in the greater Tampa Bay area forced the NFL and the teams to schedule the game a day earlier.
Here is everything you need to know about the Redskins' Week 4 preseason game against the Buccaneers.

The Redskins liked rookie running back Keith Marshall, and the team gave the former Georgia Bulldog every chance to make the roster.
Ultimately he did not get that chance, as an elbow injury will land Marshall on the injured reserve.
Marshall sustained the injury in the team's third preseason game against the Bills. Even before the elbow injury, Marshall failed to capitalize on the opportunity to backup Matt Jones.
In games against the Jets and the Falcons, Marshall struggled to gain much ground and eventually he slid behind Robert Kelley on the team's depth chart.
For now, it appears Kelley is a lock for the Redskins 53-man roster and Marshall heads to the IR.
Scot McCloughan and the 'Skins also made two other roster moves to get the squad to the 75-man limit following this morning's release of veterans Perry Riley and Stephen Paea. Tight end Derek Carrier was moved to the Reserve/Physically Unable to Perform list and rookie WR Reggie Diggs was waived with an injured designation.
Carrier's move to the PUP list was expected, and Diggs had little chance to make the roster as an undrafted receiver even before an injury limited his training camp.

The Redskins won nine games and the NFC East title last season, but that hardly matters to the sports books..
Since odds came out in May, Bovada.lv gave the Dallas Cowboys the best chance to win the division, but given recent events, things shifted.
Last week in a preseason loss to the Seattle Seahawks, Cowboys starting quarterback Tony Romo fell awkwardly and stayed on the ground in apparent pain.
Initial reports suggested Romo might have handled the hit unscathed, but news came out last weekend that Romo cracked vertebrae in his back and will miss extended action.
The Cowboys now turn to rookie Dak Prescott at QB - and in turn - Vegas turned elsewhere for their NFC East favorite.
Still, it's not the defending champion Redakins.
With odds of 7/4 Bovada likes the New York Giants to win the NFC East. The Redskins are now tied with the Cowboys at 12/5 while the Eagles come in at 6/1.
In late May Bovada put the odds of winning the NFC East as:
- Cowboys 7/4
- Giants 9/4
- (TIE) Redskins 15/4, Eagles 15/4
Curiously, the oddsmakers have moved up the Giants odds despite New York's struggles in the preseason.
Regardless, it's obvious that the wise guys still don't have high expectations for Washington.
