Redskins-Jets: Fast facts for Washington’s Week 13 matchup

The Washington Redskins will play host the New York Jets, looking to put together a two-game win streak for the first time since the second week of the season.

Washington enters the game with an 8-1 advantage over the Jets in the nine times the two franchises have met.

Some fast facts for today’s game:

Wide receiver Santana Moss needs one touchdown catch to record his 35th as a member of the Redskins, which would tie him with Ricky Sanders for seventh on the franchise’s all-time list.

Moss needs 20 receiving yards to tie Bobby Mitchell for fourth on the all-time list with 6,492.

Moss has 622 receptions, which ranks 10th among active players. He is tied for ninth among active players with 54 touchdown receptions during his 11-year career.

Roy Helu has a chance to become the first Redskins rookie running back to post back-to-back 100-yard rushing games since Reggie Brooks did it in Weeks 10 and 11 in 1993.

Helu enters this game with 38 receptions, which leads all NFL rookie running backs this season.

With a 300-yard passing game today, Rex Grossman has a chance to post back-to-back games of at least 300 yards for the first time in his career.

Linebacker Brian Orakpo, who enters the game with six sacks, has a chance to record a sack in back-to-back games for the first time since Weeks 6 and 7 of the 2010 season.

Rookie linebacker Ryan Kerrigan enters the game ranked second in the NFL with four forced fumbles. The four forced fumbles already are a Redskins’ rookie record. With a fifth forced fumble, Kerrigan would tie Ken Harvey (1995) and Bruce Smith (2000) for second-most in a single season in team history.

Tight end Fred Davis enters the game boasting a career-high single-season receiving yards total (697), which ranks fourth among NFL tight ends this season.

Punter Sav Rocca has 21 punts inside the 20 yard line, third most in the NFL.

Receiver Anthony Armstrong, who last week had a 50-yard touchdown catch, needs 32 receiving yards to surpass the 1,000-yard mark for his career.
