Redskins vs. Eagles by the numbers
—Kirk Cousins’ passer rating was 72.9. That was his worst passer rating in a game since last year’s season opener against the Steelers.
—Cousins started his 33rd consecutive game. It is the third-longest such streak for the Redskins since the 1970 merger behind Joe Theismann (60) and Mark Rypien (41)
—Ryan Kerrigan started his 97th consecutive game, the second-longest active streak among NFL linebackers.
—After he picked off a pass and returned it for a touchdown in the second quarter he now has three career interceptions and he has scored touchdowns on all of them. It was his first interception since Week 5 of the 2011 season against the Falcons.
—Kerrigan got half a sack against the Eagles. He now has 10-0 career sacks against Philly, by far the most of any active player. Nobody else has more than 5.5.
—The Redskins converted on just three of 11 third downs, 27.3 percent. That was their worst conversion rate in a game since they hit on just 25 Percent in Week 5 against the Ravens last year.
—The Redskins had a net of 200 yards passing (including 40 yards lost to sacks). That is their lowest total since passing for 172 against the Panthers in Week 11 of 2015.
