Other stats and facts via Washington Football Team Public Relations:
The Washington Football Team held Dallas to three points, the fewest ever in franchise history. Previously the fewest points Washington had held Dallas to was five on October 2, 1978.
They defeated Dallas by 22 points, the largest margin of victory over the Cowboys in a game since 2005 and their largest margin of victory since 2015 against the New Orleans Saints (33).
Washington had zero turnovers for the third time this season. They've played seven games and for a team that has no margin for error, that's huge.
The WFT converted on 60 percent of their third downs on the day (9-for-15), which is the highest mark in a single-game since Dec. 24, 2016 against the Chicago Bears (61.5).
Washington held the ball for 36:24, which marked the highest time of possession since Week 1 of the 2018 season against the Arizona Cardinals (38:08).
