Redskins' Dwayne Haskins takes selfies with fans, misses final play of first career win

Sporting News

Dwayne Haskins was looking for a Kodak moment.

The Redskins rookie QB wasn't exactly picture perfect in his first career win vs. the Lions; he went 13-of-29 passing for 156 yards and an interception in the 19-16 victory. A fourth-quarter drive led Washington to a go-ahead field goal. But as the 'Skins squeaked out a win, Haskins wasn't on the field to seal the deal.

Fabian Moreau intercepted Lions QB Jeff Driskell to clinch the victory following the ensuing kickoff, but there were two seconds left on the game clock. The most memorable moment — or non-moment — for Haskins came on the final kneel-down, a play for which he was nowhere to be found.

Haskins was actually still on the sidelines, taking photos with fans and hyping up the crowd.

Redskins interim coach Bill Callahan went searching for his QB but had no luck. He instead put Case Keenum on the field to take the game's final snap.

“I think he thought the game was over,” Callahan said, per ProFootballTalk. “I’m happy we won. We’ll address that.”
