Redskins Get First Home Win in 13 Months with 19-16 Victory Over Lions

The Redskins gave faithful fans something to smile about Sunday, snapping a nine-game losing streak at FedEx Field in a six-point win over the Detroit Lions.

Kicker Dustin Hopkins scored 13 of Washington’s 19 points, including a game-winning 39-yard field goal with 16 seconds to play.

Washington’s offense couldn’t get much going, and a 91-yard kick return touchdown by Steven Sims Jr. was one of few highlights in front of a sparse home crowd. Rookie quarterback Dwayne Haskins Jr. was just out of sync with receivers for much of the day, but he made enough plays to notch his first career win.
