Offensive spotlight: This marked six straight games with a touchdown for Amon-Ra St. Brown, tying a team record, and this is a team that once featured Hall of Fame receiver Calvin Johnson. St. Brown ended up with nine catches for 116 yards and two touchdowns. He also had a big end-around carry for 58 yards. He gained 3.4 yards per route run.
Defensive spotlight: Aidan Hutchinson had a big day, notching three sacks, all of which came in the first half. The Lions' pass-rush was combining well to cause problems for Washington, and Hutchinson was the beneficiary of several of those plays. He rushed the passer 37 times in the game to lead the team.
Rookie spotlight: Washington’s first-round rookie Jahan Dotson once again made a couple of excellent plays, scoring a touchdown and making another excellent grab on his way to 59 yards and four catches from five targets.
Offensive line spotlight: Even with multiple missing starters on the offensive line, Detroit’s group were able to open up some significant holes and pass block reasonably well. The line allowed two sacks, each from backups starting in place of injured starters, and the Lions rushed for 137 yards before contact.
