STREAKS, STATS AND NOTES - NFC East title on line in 256th and final game of regular season, also 106th edition of 52-year-old division rivalry. Cowboys can only make playoffs by winning - they would own tiebreaker over Washington - while Redskins could lose and still get wild-card berth if both Chicago and Minnesota lose. ... Dallas seeking first division title and playoff berth since 2009. Redskins vying for first postseason nod since 2007, first division title since 1999. ... Washington would also become fourth team under current playoff format to make postseason after starting 3-6, and first since Jaguars in 1996. ... Washington looking to sweep season series for first time since 2005. ... Cowboys 10-21 in regular-season finales on road, including playoffs-or-bust losses at Philadelphia (44-6) in 2008 and New York Giants (31-14) last year. ... Cowboys QB Tony Romo has franchise-record 4,685 yards passing. ... Dallas WR Dez Bryant coming off career-high 224-yard game last week, has 808 yards in last seven games. ... Cowboys' Jason Witten has 103 catches, single-season NFL record for a tight end. ... ... Washington has won six straight, seeking first seven-game streak since 1996. ... Redskins QB Robert Griffin III can set several more NFL rookie records. His 104.1 passer rating currently tops Ben Roethlisberger's 98.1 in 2004, his 66.4 completion percentage is just shy of Roethlisberger's 66.44 in 2004, and his 1.3 percentage of passes intercepted is better than Charlie Batch's 1.98 in 1998. Griffin already has league record for rushing yards by a rookie QB (752). ... RB Alfred Morris (1,413) is NFL's rookie rushing leader and needs 104 yards to break Clinton Portis' single-season Redskins record (1,516 in 2005). ... Morris and Griffin (752) have rushed for combined 2,165 yards, most of a pair of teammates in franchise history. ... Redskins can set single-season franchise record for total yards (6,253 in 1989) by gaining 484, and can set single-season team rushing mark (2,625 in 1983) with 191. ... Washington's offense leads NFL in yards per play (6.18) and yards on first down (6.47). ... Redskins have committed 14 turnovers, fewest in league. Franchise record 16, set during 1982 short-shortened season. ... Washington K Kai Forbath has made first 17 NFL field goal attempts, a league record. ... Watch for flying footballs: Dallas passes a league-high 66.3 percent of the time, while opponents throw the ball a league-high 64.8 percent vs. Washington.
