Patriots By the Numbers This weekGreg M. Cooper - USA TODAY Sports

With the game with the Redskins looming on Sunday at home, this is a good time to check out some of the more interesting numbers for the Patriots. Thanks to the Patriots media department for putting together a nice snapshot of these in their game release this week.

The last time these two teams met, Washington had the #9 rated defense in the NFL. But Tom Brady threw for 357 yards and three touchdowns in that matchup, leading the Patriot to a 34-27 win.

Other numbers this include:

1.2: Average yards per rush by the Dolphins in last week’s 36-7 Patriots win.

8.5: Sacks by Chandler Jones thus far in 2015, the most in the NFL

10: Receptions by Rob Gronkowski in the 2011 meeting vs Washington. Gronk had 160 yards receiving and two TDs in that matchup.

15: Rushing yards by Miami, they had gained over 300 in the two games prior.

15: Years since the Patriots have been swept by a division opponent. Last week’s win over the Dolphins ensures that the streak continues as the Pats are 3-0 in divisional play.

16.6: Average margin of victory for the Patriots in 2015.

19: Games that Tom Brady has thrown for at least four TDs and no interceptions.

20: Straight home wins vs non-divisional opponents, last loss November 2008 vs Pitt.

26: Number of sacks by the Patriots in 2015, 2nd in the NFL (Denver 29)

27: Number of straight quarters that the Patriots have scored in during the 2015 season.

43: Wins vs the NFC since 2002, the Patriots record of 43-10 vs the NFC is the best record vs non-divisional opponents since 2002.

47-4: Patriots record in their last 51 home games

60: Number of touchdown passes from Tom Brady to Rob Gronkowski, the second most btw a QB and TE behind Philip Rivers and Antonio Gates (74).

69: The number of 300 yard games thrown by Tom Brady, the Patriots record in those contests is 58-11.

78: Number of straight wins at home by the Patriots when leading at halftime.
