WASHINGTON — The Redskins wrapped up an impressive 2015 regular-season with Sunday’s 34-23 in Dallas. Along the way, some players (most notably quarterback Kirk Cousins) rewrote the Redskins’ single-season franchise record book. Before we look ahead to Washington’s home playoff game against Green Bay, we look back at some significant figures from Sunday’s win in Dallas, and the just-completed regular season.
