Here is what you need to know on this Monday, September 25, seven days before the Washington Redskins play Chiefs in Kansas City.
Today’s schedule: Jay Gruden conference call 3:00
—Monday night Redskins @ Eagles (10/23) 28
—Cowboys @ Redskins (10/29) 34
Redskins vs. Raiders by the numbers
—The Redskins outgained the Raiders 472 yards to 128. The 344-yard differential was the largest for the Redskins since they had a 385-yard advantage over Bears in 1974.
—The Raiders were 0-11 on third down. It was the first time the Redskins allowed no third-down conversions since a game against Dallas in 2007.
—The Raiders’ 128 yards were the fewest the Redskins have allowed in a game since they also allowed 128 to the Broncos in 1992. This marked the fifth time since the merger that the Redskins have held an opponent to 128 yards or fewer.
—Chris Thompson had 150 yards receiving. That shattered his former personal best of 57 yards in a game. Going back to at least 1960, no Redskins running back has gained more receiving yards in a game.
—Thompson added 31 yards rushing. His 181 yards of offense easily beat the Raiders’ total offense of 128 by itself.
—Josh Doctson's first catch of the season was good for 52 yards and a touchdown.
—The Redskins now have at least one sack in 27 consecutive games, the longest active streak in the NFC and the second-longest in the NFL (Bengals, 32).
