Here is what you need to know on this Monday, December 9, six days before the Washington Redskins visit the Atlanta Falcons.

Nickel coverage

Five stats and other notes from the Redskins’ 45-10 loss to the Chiefs on Sunday:

1. In the first half of their 13 games the Redskins have given up 226 points. With three games left to play, that already is the most points they have given up in any half during a full season in their history. They gave up 225 in the first halves of their 16 games in 1998.

2. Redskins QB’s were sacked six times. They have now given up 25 sacks in their last five games. That is the most during any five-game stretch since sacks become an official stat in 1982.

3. Alfred Morris rushed for 31 yards to go past the 1,000-yard mark for the second straight season. He is the first player to do that since Clinton Portis in 2007-2008 and he is the first Redskin to do it in his first two years in the league.

4. Pierre Garçon has 31 yards receiving to go over the 1,000-yard mark for the season in that category. He has the 27th 1,000-yard receiver season in team history.

5. The Redskins’ 3-10 record is their worst after 13 games since they were 2-11 in 1994, Norv Turner’s first season as head coach.

    haselett and burns need to go ,no discussion or debate that was the sorriest performance in years
    Why does the press have dig up crazy stories whether true or not right before a game.
    the stadium was half empty and almost empty by the end of the game ,it could have been the weather but if we were winning that stadium would have been rocking ,it seems to reflect what is happening on some message boards are ghost towns .
    i think we are all just plain tired of watching train wreck reruns and commenting on them

    Snyder’s penchant for rubbing elbows with his athletes to make him somehow feel more involved in the sport has really backfired. When Shanahan came to town there were reports that Snyder wasn’t going to allow it anymore as in ”go talk to the coach”. Well it seems the guy making the rules can’t obey the rules. Now there seems to be credibility in the stories about olinemen not picking rg3 up after tackles….players probably knew about the relationship between Snyder/RG3 and were rift over it. As Rich has stated in the story, we’ve hit all time lows. How can someone so smart as Snyder in a corporate sense be so clueless about running his team like a corporation? People want Haslett fired but where does Raheem figure in this? My mind is all over the place on this and I’ve edited this 3 times because the blame/fault is so convoluted that it’s tough to pin down all the reasons for this teams failure but quality organizations start with the guy at the top and that is Snyder.

      Well said. Emotions are everywhere. These “stories” come out because we are such an easy target. We suck.
