Redskins' Dwayne Haskins shakes off tough day to lead winning drive

LANDOVER, Md. -- Washington Redskins quarterback Dwayne Haskins endured his struggles for most of Sunday. And then something changed.

Haskins overcame three bad quarters to lead the Redskins to a last-second win 19-16 victory over the Detroit Lions. Give him credit for not letting the slow start damage his confidence. Perhaps that’s why, after the game-winning field goal, offensive coordinator Kevin O’Connell embraced Haskins for a minute on the sidelines.

Entering his last two drives, Haskins had completed 7-of-20 passes for 88 yards. He threw long to a wide-open Terry McLaurin in the end zone on a first-quarter pass.
