It was a shame to see Redskins rook QB Dwayne Haskins go down after an impressive first half of yesterday’s 41-35 loss to the Giants. Haskins has gotten better as the season has gone on, and he’s given his franchise no indication that they need to look in a different direction.
A tough day for Washington’s rushing attack coincided with a tough day for center Chase Roullier in the run game. The former Wyoming center has had a strong year for the most part, but this game contained several whiffs that will make his 2019 lowlight reel.
While the game ended with him getting beat for the game-winning touchdown, Landon Collins played like he had a point to prove against the Giants. He made a number of stops and was all over the field all day long.
Expectations were high for Jonathan Allen when Washington made him the No. 17 overall pick in the 2017 draft. But while he has become a good player, he has failed to make an impact as a truly dominant force. This game was largely symbolic of his NFL career — he made some splash plays but was quiet for most of the day.
