Hunter Smith’s 35-yard touchdown pass to Mike Sellers on a fake field goal. It knotted the game at 14-14 and really gave the Redskins renewed life.
It Was Over When:
Shaun Suisham kicked a field goal with 1:10 left to play, to go up by 10.
Levi Jones, who anchored the left side of the line, and looked phenomenal in his debut. Ladell Betts gets to share that ball though.
18 carries for 91 yards for Betts in the second half. Check out By The Numbers for all of the interesting statistics.
