Need to Know: Redskins complete historic comeback

Here is what you need to know on this Monday, October 26, 13 days before the Redskins visit the New England Patriots.

Notes and numbers on Redskins 31, Bucs 30

—The Redskins’ comeback from a 24-point deficit was the biggest deficit the team has overcome to win a game in its teams history. They have overcome 21-point deficits three times, against the Panthers (On 10.3.99), the Lions (11.4.90), and the Cowboys (11.28.65).

—Kirk Cousins’ 33 completions tied the franchise record. Jason Campbell also had 33 in a game against the Cowboys on November 18, 2007.

—Cousins’ passer rating of 124.7 was the highest of any start of his career.

—Tight end Jordan Reed recorded career highs in both receptions (11) and touchdown receptions (2).

—The successful onside kick the Redskins executed in the third quarter, kicked by Dustin Hopkins and recovered by Trenton Robinson was their first since November 4, 2007.

—Chris Baker is catching up with team leader Bashaud Breeland in the takeaways department. He recovered a fumble to seal the win today after forcing two fumbles in Atlanta in Week 5.

—The onside kick recovery was the first in the NFL this season; teams were 0-24 trying to kick onside going into Sunday’s games.

Redskins release Dashaun Phillips, again

Redskins release Dashaun Phillips, again

Cornerback Dashaun Phillips had a very short return to the Redskins’ active roster.

Phillips, who started the season as the nickel cornerback before being benched and eventually released and moved to the practice squad last month, was re-signed to the roster on Friday. He made the trip to Arizona but he was inactive for the game. The Redskins announced today that he has been released again.

It is possible for Phillips to return to the practice squad if he clears through waivers.

The transaction clears a roster spot for the return of offensive tackle Trent Williams, who has been suspended for the last four games.

Jamison Crowder's touchdown dance was better than his touchdown

Jamison Crowder's touchdown dance was better than his touchdown

Among all the darkness and depression that has followed after the Redskins' 31-23 loss to the Cardinals on Sunday, one bright, shining light has emerged: Jamison Crowder's touchdown celebration.

Late in the third quarter, the second-year wideout was on the receiving end of a 26-yard Kirk Cousins strike, which put his team in the lead on the game's scoreboard by three. However, it's what he did post-catch that put his team in the lead by a far larger margin on the swagboard.

Feast your eyes on this dance, and if you've already seen it, feast your eyes on it again. And again. And AGAIN:

Do you see how much Juju he put on that beat? And did you catch how he gave the ref a little somethin'-somethin' right at the end of the sequence? Calling that flawless would be an insult to Crowder.

Apparently, Jay Gruden was heard screaming at his players in the locker room as they were processing the matchup's result Sunday night. Is it possible he was just loudly complimenting Crowder's moves?
