Lions head coach Jim Schwartz is undefeated against the Redskins (2-0).
Redskins head coach Mike Shanahan has a .500 record against the Lions (2-2).
The Redskins and Lions last tangled on Halloween 2010 in the Motor City. Calvin Johnson caught three touchdown passes and racked up 101 receiving yards as the Lions cruised to a 37-25 win.
