While the most important number put up by the Washington Redskins this week was the number 3, as in wins this season, here is a look at some of the other interesting numbers from Sunday’s 26-24 defeat of the Dallas Cowboys:
381 – Yards total offense for the Redskins – the most the Cowboys have allowed this season
145 – Yards receiving by Santana Moss. 103 of them came in the second quarter alone.
121 – Yards rushing by Clinton Portis.
71 – Yards receiving for Terrell Owens on 7 receptions. That’s about as good as you can hope to hold T.O to, when the Cowboys throw the ball in his direction 18 times.
60 – Yard punt from Durant Brooks, his best of the season. The rookie struggled mightily over the first two games, but has shown definite improvement both of the last two weeks.
38 – Minutes of possession for Washington. That leaves just under 22 minutes for the Cowboys – a full quarter of TOP less. A lot of the difference was in the fourth quarter where the Redskins held on to the ball for a staggering 13 of the 15 minutes.
26 – Yards rushing by Marion Barber, and he was held to just 8 carries. In all, the Cowboys could only muster 44 yards total rushing yards against a staunch Redskin defense.
14 – Points put up by Shaun Suisham. He was 4 for 4 on field goals (20, 33, 33, and 29) and while none of them were ‘long,’ the last one he kicked was certainly pressure-filled.
