Dwayne Haskins was awarded a playoff spot.
The sophomore quarterback was removed Sunday in the fourth quarter of the game, with Washington trailing Carolina 20-6 and Haskins doing little to help the soccer team’s efforts. Washington lost the game 20-13.
Taylor Heinicke replaces Haskins and completes 8 of his first 11 passes for 65 yards; he finishes 12-out-19 for 137 yards and a TD.
Haskins left with a pass of 14 from 28 for 154 yards and two interceptions. His passenger rating of 36.9 highlights a memorable evening for the caller, who was able to play despite violating COVID-19 protocol during the week for which his captaincy was stripped and he was charged more than half of his weekly salary .
After Washington watched the Giants fall to the Ravens, he was able to secure the NFC East victory. The ensuing loss now again offers a fortune for Ron Rivera’s team against the Philadelphia Eagles to close out the season.
