BRIEFLY - Keenum threw two interceptions to Washington safety D.J. Swearinger, who was his teammate with the Houston Texans from 2013-14. He was one of five different Minnesota players to score a touchdown, the other being Latavius Murray on a 1-yard run in the first quarter.
Swearinger's multi-interception game is the first by a member of the Redskins since both Bashaud Breeland and Josh Norman accomplished the feat in Week 16 of the 2016 season at Chicago.

"Not my best decision; you definitely won't see me doing that going forward", Diggs told KFAN after the game.
Despite the loss, Washington accomplished several milestones with a few listed here as provided by team public relations. They were 8-12 on third downs (and I would say they stopped Cousins on his quarterback sneak in which he was awarded a touchdown even though his forward progress was stopped) but the team needs to come up bigger in fourth down situations.
In the defeat, Cousins added to his team record for career 300-yard passing games (23, including 22 in regular season play). "It's our job to get the home field into the game, and we didn't do that at the end of the second quarter and second half".
