Offense:

  • Quarterback Kirk Cousins recorded a career-high 31 completions on 46 attempts for 290 yards with one touchdown and no interceptions. His 31 completions were the most by a Redskins quarterback in a single game against Philadelphia in the 161-game history of the Redskins-Eagles rivalry.

Cousins engineered a 15-play, 90-yard drive in 5:39 to complete his first fourth-quarter come-from-behind victory as a starter. It marked the second time in his career he contributed to a come-from-behind victory in the fourth quarter, joining his contributions as a reserve vs. Baltimore on Dec. 9, 2012. * Cousins (4,035) became the 17th quarterback in team history to throw for 4,000 yards with the Redskins. * Cousins recorded his first career rushing touchdown on a one-yard run in the second quarter. It marked the second time Cousins had recorded points as a rusher in his career, as he previously rushed for a two-point conversion vs. Baltimore in 2012. * Cousins' rushing touchdown was the first rushing touchdown surrendered by the Eagles this season. * Cousins connected with wide receiver Pierre Garçon for a four-yard touchdown to win the game. * The touchdown reception was the 30th of Garçon's career, becoming the 40th active player to reach 30 career receiving touchdowns. * Garçon finished the game with a season-high seven receptions for 55 yards and the touchdown. *

Running back Chris Thompson recorded career highs in rushing attempts (six) and rushing yards (53). * Thompson recorded a career-long 42-yard run on third-and-19 in the first quarter. * Thompson's run marked the team's first conversion on third-and-10 this season. * Thompson's run was the Redskins' third rush of 30 or more yards this season, featuring one each by three different players (Thompson, Matt Jones and Alfred Morris). The Redskins had one run of 30 or more yards during the 2014 season. * The Redskins' first three scoring drives lasted 13, 10 and 10 plays, respectively. Washington's nine-play scoring drive in the third quarter snapped a streak of eight consecutive scoring drives of 10 plays or more. Per the Elias Sports Bureau, the most recent NFL team to have eight consecutive scoring drives last 10 plays or more was the 2007 Indianapolis Colts (a streak of nine such drives). *

Wide receiver Jamison Crowder posted career highs in receptions (seven) and receiving yards (65). Crowder became the first Redskins rookie to lead the team in receiving yards in a game since tight end Jordan Reed in Week 8 of the 2013 season. * Tight end Jordan Reed caught five passes for 37 yards and now has 24 receptions for 278 yards this season. His 24 receptions through four games are the most by a Redskins tight end through four weeks in franchise history, surpassing Chris Cooley's 22 in Weeks 1-4 of the 2009 season. * Wide receiver Rashad Ross recorded a career-long 43-yard reception in the third quarter, the team's longest play from scrimmage this season. On the same drive, wide receiver Jamison Crowder recorded a career-long 22-yard reception. * The Redskins rushed for 127 yards on 32 carries. The Redskins have now eclipsed 125 rushing yards three times in a four-game span for the first time since Weeks 10-13 of the 2013 season. * The Redskins gained 25 first downs, their most since posting 27 first downs at Philadelphia in Week 3 last season.
