Redskins rookie quarterback Dwayne Haskins got his first win as an NFL starter on Sunday, but he shouldn’t get lost in the noise; he has plenty to work on.
Washington Redskins quarterback Dwayne Haskins was elated when he notched the first victory of his NFL career against the Detroit Lions on Sunday, and he played a crucial role in getting the win; Haskins’ clutch third-down run on the final drive helped the Redskins move the chains, and his third-down pass to Terry McLaurin afterward set up a game-winning field goal.
But while Haskins rose to the occasion on the final drive, the previous three and a half quarters were less superb. Haskins routinely missed open receivers, and there were times when he could have given his offense a better chance to succeed.
Since this seems to be of general interest on a weekly basis, let’s go into the details of what Haskins did well on Sunday, how he can improve, and how we should look at this situation, moving forward.
