Packers-Redskins: The Losing Numbers

In our signature postgame feature, it's 20 defining number that tell the gruesome tale of the defenseless Packers' loss at Washington.

0: Takeaways by the Packers. It’s their first back-to-back takeaway-free games since 2013.

2:24: Time spent in the lead the past three weeks by the Packers. That’s how long their 10-7 lead held up on Sunday.

2.93: Yards allowed per carry by Green Bay with Rob Kelley’s 66-yarder out of the mix. Of course, all runs count, but it’s a similar story to last week. Green Bay held Tennessee to 3.0 yards per carry after DeMarco Murray’s 75-yard touchdown to open the game.

3: Touchdown passes by Aaron Rodgers. He’s accounted for all of the team’s 28 touchdowns this season.

4: Consecutive losses by the Packers, their longest streak since a five-game skid in 2008.

4: Plays of at least 40 yards allowed by the Packers. They’ve allowed six over the past two games after giving up only five in the first eight games.

4: Consecutive games with at least 270 net passing yards allowed by the Packers. That’s the longest streak in franchise history, according to Pro Football Reference.

6: Consecutive scoring drives allowed by the Packers, with the touchdown at the end of the first half, a field goal to start the second half and then four consecutive touchdowns.

7: Rushing touchdowns allowed by the Packers over the last four games, including three on Sunday. In their first six games, they allowed just one.

11.6: Points allowed by the Packers over the final nine games of the 2010 season. These Packers have allowed an average of 38.5 over the past four games.

30: The Packers have allowed four consecutive games of 30-plus points for the fourth time in franchise history. All of those came pre-Vince Lombardi — 1949, 1951 and 1953.

33: Rushing yards by Rodgers, making him the team’s leading rusher. In the five games without Eddie Lacy, Rodgers leads the team with 170 rushing yards. Ty Montgomery is next with 139.

40: The Packers have allowed back-to-back games of 40-plus points for the third time in franchise history, according to Pro Football Reference. In 1950, it allowed 41 to the Colts and 45 to the Rams. In 1952, it allowed 48 to the Lions and 45 to the Rams.

66: Length of Kelley’s fourth-quarter run. The Packers have allowed a rush of 66-plus yards in each of the last two games. From 2009 through 2015, the first seven seasons of Dom Capers’ tenure as defensive coordinator, the Packers had given up only one run of that distance.

145.8: Cousins’ passer rating. Last week, Tennessee’s Marcus Mariota had a passer rating of 149.8. It marked only the second time since 1950 in which quarterbacks with at least 10 attempts had a passer rating of at least 140 against the Packers.

153: Points allowed by the Packers over the last four games. That’s the worst stretch in franchise history since the final four games of the 1951 season.

158.3: Cousins’ passer rating — that’s perfection — when attacking the Packers’ corners, according to Pro Football Focus. Its early numbers (and best guess on coverage responsibilities) showed Cousins was 16-of-18 from 282 yards and three touchdowns against LaDarius Gunter, Micah Hyde and Quinten Rollins.

173: Points allowed by the Seahawks all season.

424: Yards by the Packers. Since the start of the Rodgers era in 2008, the Packers were 30-5-1 when topping 420 yards.

515: Yards by the Redskins. This marked only the third game since 1940 in which the Packers allowed 515 yards and didn’t force a turnover. The last time was the 2009 loss at Pittsburgh.
