Washington Redskins QB Dwayne Haskins Earns First Win As NFL Starter Over Detroit Lions

The Washington Redskins snapped a four-game losing streak with a 19-16 win over the visiting Detroit Lions on Sunday. Rookie quarterback Dwayne Haskins recorded his first career win, completing 13 of 29 passes for 156 yards. Terry McLaurin caught five passes for 72 yards for the Redskins (2-9) and Dustin Hopkins kicked four field goals, including a go-ahead 39-yarder with 16 seconds remaining.

Haskins was taking selfies with fans after Fabian Moreau intercepted Detroit Lions quarterback Jeff Driskel to clinch Washington’s 19-16 victory; however two seconds remained on the game clock, and backup quarterback Case Keenum came in to take the field in place of Haskins. 

Washington head coach Bill Callahan told reporters after the game that the team’s coaches were searching for Haskins to go in but couldn’t be found. Callahan noted Haskins may have thought the game was over.
