Redskins Set Record For Lack of Interceptions

The Washington Redskins added onto an NFL record during their 14-11 win over the Cleveland Browns today. They set the record last week but just learned about it today.

According to the Elias Sports Bureau, the Redskins have now thrown 332 pass attempts without an interception, dating back to last year.

That beats out the previous NFL mark of 281, set by the Oakland Raiders in 2002.

That's quite impressive once you remember that, during the streak, the Redskins have undergone a coaching change, a new offensive system, and includes passes thrown by Antwaan Randle-El and Clinton Portis. Also remember that Todd Collins began the streak last season when he took over for an injured Jason Campbell.

The breakdown of pass attempts during the streak: Campbell (224), Collins (105), Randle-El (2) and Portis (1).

Campbell's 224 straight pass attempts without a pick is the Redskins' franchise record.
