Redskins rook quarterback Dwayne Haskins had a huge opportunity last night.
Down a touchdown heading into the second half, the former Ohio State star was told that he would be running the offense because Case Keenum had been ruled out with a concussion.
Haskins had only seen time in one other game, the Redskins’ Week 4 loss to the New York Giants. Keenum was struggling, so in came Haskins. His first game went just as bad as it could have, however. He completed just 9 of 17 passes for 107 yards and threw three interceptions. The outing was enough to push back fans from calling for Haskins for a few games, but as the losses began to pile up and with head coach Jay Gruden now gone, the movement again picked up steam.
Unfortunately, Haskins’ performance was not unlike his first outing. In all, he completed just 3 of his 5 passing attempts, and he threw for 33 yards and an interception — a critical turnover as Washington drove the field looking to grab momentum. As a result, the Vikings cruised to a 19-9 win.
