STREAKS, STATS AND NOTES - Panthers have won five in row against Redskins. ... Carolina's Cam Newton has run for 57 TDs in career, most by QB in NFL history. ... RB Christian McCaffrey averaging league-best 130.3 yards from scrimmage. ... TE Greg Olsen could return to action after breaking foot in season opener. ... K Graham Gano won last week's game with 63-yard field goal with 1 second remaining. Gano hasn't missed kick this season (7 for 7 on field goals, 11 for 11 on PATs). ... LB Thomas Davis is back after serving four-game suspension for violating league's policy on performance enhancers. ... DE Mario Addison has six sacks in his past seven road games. ... S Mike Adams coming off two-pick game, his fourth multi-interception game since 2014, tied for most in NFL in that span. ... Only eight teams are averaging fewer points than 20.8 per game put up by Washington this season. ... Redskins QB Alex Smith's passer rating of 92.9 is tied for 19th among QBs with at least 80 attempts this season. ... No Washington WR has more than 13 receptions. RB Chris Thompson leads team with 26 catches. TE Jordan Reed ranks second with 15. ... Thompson is one of three NFL RBs with at least 150 catches and 10 TD receptions since 2014. ... WR Jamison Crowder has four TD catches in past five home games. ... Rookie DL Daron Payne had forced fumble, sack last week. ... Fantasy tip: Even if Carolina's offense has been so-so, especially when passing, Newton always seems to fare well against Redskins, whose secondary looked terrible in Monday night's loss to New Orleans. Newton is 4-0 with nine TDs and zero INTs for 115.4 passer rating vs. Washington, along with two rushing scores.
