  • The Washington Redskins fell to the Carolina Panthers, 44-16, in front of an announced crowd of 74,418 people at Bank of America Stadium on Sunday.
  • With DeSean Jackson's 56-yard touchdown reception and Andre Roberts' 99-yard return touchdown, the Redskins recorded two total touchdowns of 50 or more yards in a single game for the first time since three years ago today (Nov. 22, 2012) at Dallas.

Offense:

  • Quarterback Kirk Cousins completed 22-of-30 passes (73.3 percent) for 207 yards with one touchdown and one interception.

Receiver DeSean Jackson led the Redskins in receiving yards, gaining 87 yards on five receptions with one touchdown. * In the first quarter, Cousins connected with Jackson for a 56-yard touchdown. * With the touchdown, Jackson tied Joey Galloway (22) for the fifth-most total touchdowns of 50-plus yards since the 1970 merger. * The receiving touchdown was the 38th of Jackson's career, his sixth with Washington and his first of the season. * The reception was Jackson's 31st career reception of 50 yards or more, the most by any player in the NFL since he entered the league in 2008. * With the touchdown pass, Cousins extended his career-best streak of consecutive games with a touchdown pass this season to 10 games. Cousins is the first Redskins quarterback to open a season with a passing touchdown in each of the first 10 games of a season since Pro Football Hall of Famer Sonny Jurgensen in 1967. * The touchdown pass was the 33rd of Cousins' career, placing him one shy of Patrick Ramsey (34) for 14th-most passing touchdowns in franchise history. * Including a 78-yard touchdown pass to running back Matt Jones last week, with Jackson's touchdown, the Redskins recorded a 50-yard touchdown pass in consecutive games for the first time since a three-game stretch in Weeks 5-7 last season.


Defense:

  • With a sack of Carolina QB Cam Newton in the first quarter, linebacker Ryan Kerrigan moved past Ken Harvey (41.5) for sole possession of fourth place in team history for most sacks since the stat became official in 1982.

Check out these top defensive and special teams from the Washington Redskins 2015 Week 11 matchup against the Carolina Panthers Nov. 22, 2015, at Bank of America Stadium.

Linebacker Preston Smith recorded his third career sack in the second quarter, his first since Week 4 vs. Philadelphia. * The Redskins forced a Panthers' three-and-out on Carolina's opening possession, marking the first time since Week 4 (vs. Philadelphia) the Redskins forced a three-and-out on their opponent's first drive. * An intentional safety by the Panthers in the final minute of the game gave the Redskins the team's first safety since Dec. 23, 2007 (at Minnesota).


Special Teams:

  • Wide receiver Andre Roberts returned a second-quarter kickoff 99 yards for a touchdown, his first career kickoff return touchdown.
  • Including a 101-yard kickoff return touchdown by Rashad Ross in Week 3, the Redskins tied a team record with two kickoff return touchdowns in a single season for the fourth time in team history (2005, 1947, 1942).

The Redskins have now had two different players record kickoff returns for a touchdown in a single season for the third time in franchise history, joining the 1942 (Andy Farkas and Ray Hare) and 2005 (Ladell Betts and Antonio Brown) squads. * The Redskins became the first NFL team this season to record multiple kickoff returns for touchdowns this season. * The kickoff return touchdown was the first against the Panthers by any opponent since Oct. 18, 2009, a span of 101 regular season games. It also marked the Redskins' first special teams return touchdown (kickoff or punt) against the Panthers since Carolina's inception in 1995. * Roberts recorded a career-high 177 kickoff return yards, surpassing his previous career best of 117 yards, set in Week 11 last season vs. Tampa Bay. * Roberts' 177 kickoff return yards were the most by a member of the Redskins since Niles Paul gained 179 yards vs. Kansas City on Dec. 8, 2013. * Punter Tress Way posted season highs in gross punting average (53.2) and net punting average (53.0). * Way had a season-high three punts downed inside the 20-yard line, tying his career high set previously four times last season.
