A list of stats and notes from the Washington Football Team's 20-16 loss to the Los Angeles Chargers, presented by BDO by the Numbers, as compiled by Washington Football Team Public Relations.

The Washington Football Team fell to the Los Angeles Chargers, 20-16 at FedExField. Washington dropped their season opener for the first time since 2019, when they fell to the Philadelphia Eagles at Lincoln Financial Field. Washington held their opponent to 90 rushing yards, the fewest since allowing 83 rushing yards to the Dallas Cowboys in Week 7 of last season. Washington won the coin toss and deferred to the second half. Washington rookies LB Jamin Davis, T Sam Cosmi, CB Benjamin St-Juste, WR Dyami Brown, RB Jaret Patterson and LS Camaron Cheeseman all made their regular season debuts. QB Ryan Fitzpatrick was 3-of-6 for 13 yards before departing with a hip injury. QB Taylor Heinicke replaced Fitzpatrick and was 11-of-15 for 122 yards, a touchdown and a 119.3 passer rating. Heinicke added three rushes for 17 yards. RB Antonio Gibson had 20 carries for 90 yards. Gibson also added three receptions for 18 yards Gibson's 108 yards from scrimmage are the most by a Washington running back in Week 1 since Adrian Peterson's 166 in 2018. It marked the fifth time in Gibson's career that he amassed 100-plus scrimmage yards. The last Washington running back other than Gibson to tally more than 108 scrimmage yards in a single-game was RB Derrius Guice who notched 137 scrimmage yards against Carolina in 2019. WR Terry McLaurin had four receptions for 62 yards. It is McLaurin's 20th career game with at least 60 receiving yards, the fourth-most amongst receivers through 30-career games. He trails Odell Beckham Jr. (23), Julio Jones (21) and Michael Thomas (21). McLaurin has 248 career receiving yards in Week 1 contests, the most by a receiver in franchise history through three Week 1 games. TE Logan Thomas hauled in three passes for 30 yards and a touchdown. CB William Jackson III made his Washington debut and recorded an interception of Chargers QB Justin Herbert. Jackson III also had two PD's, the most by a Washington player in a Week 1 contest since 2018. Jackson III is just the second player in Washington history to record at least two PD's and an interception in a Week 1 contest. DE Montez Sweat tallied a sack, QBH and forced fumble. It was his 17.0 career sack, the third most in Washington history through 33 career games. With his QBH, Sweat now has the most QBH by a Washington player through 33 career games in franchise history. Sweat is the first player to record a QBH, FF and sack in a single game since Chase Young did so on December 27, 2020 vs. Carolina. DT Jonathan Allen had a sack of three yards, a TFL and three QBH. K Dustin Hopkins went 3-of-4 on field goals, connecting from 30, 43 and 48 yards. He also made the only extra point he attempted.
