The Washington Redskins fell to last in the NFL on offense, relied heavily on the running game featuring Adrian Peterson and tried to make things as simple as possible for the rookie quarterback. “It looks a little more promising now,” Sims said.

The Philadelphia Eagles will be looking to take one more step toward a potential playoff berth when they visit the NFC East rival Washington Redskins on Sunday. The Eagles rallied from a 14-point, second-half deficit for a 23-17 overtime victory over the visiting New York Giants on Monday and improved to 6-7, tying the Dallas Cowboys for first place in the division. Quarterback Carson Wentz tossed a pair of 2-yard touchdown passes to Zach Ertz, first for the tying score with 1:53 left in regulation, then the winning score in overtime.

So much has changed in the 13 months since the Redskins last won a home game at FedEx Field. The quarterback, the coach, the atmosphere around an organization that thought it was a playoff contender after a 20-17 win against the Dallas Cowboys on Oct. 21, 2018, before everything fell apart. If the crowds at FedEx Field have dwindled into apathy, there's your reason.

Cleveland defense end Myles Garrett ripped off Pittsburgh quarterback Mason Rudolph's helmet and hit him with it in the head in the final seconds as the Browns' 21-7 win over the Steelers on Thursday night ended with a wild brawl between the rivals. Garrett faces a likely suspension for his actions, and Steelers center Maurkice Pouncey will likely be disciplined for kicking Garrett in the head. Players from both sidelines spilled on the field during the wild melee, which began after Garrett wrestled Rudolph to the ground after he threw the ball on a meaningless play.

The offense belongs to Dwayne Haskins full-time now. Washington Redskins interim head coach Bill Callahan announced Monday their rookie will be the starting quarterback for the rest of the 2019 season. Haskins, the 15th overall pick in the 2019 NFL draft, will make his second career start on Sunday against the New York Jets (2-7) in Washington.

Since the Washington Redskins fired Jay Gruden at 0-5 and replaced him with Bill Callahan, they have one win and three more losses to show for the coaching change. Five consecutive losses to open the season already quashed Washington's playoff hopes, but there's little tangible evidence the move is paying off in the short or long term. The Redskins at the bye week of a lost season are a team without a definitive answer at quarterback, solutions to problems on offense and defense, or a visible organizational plan for the future.

Rookie Dwayne Haskins is expected to remain the Washington Redskins' starting quarterback when they return from their bye to face the New York Jets in Week 11, multiple outlets reported Wednesday. NFL Network first reported Haskins is expected to start. The MMQB later reported that Washington's quarterbacks had been told the news, with veteran Case Keenum expected to be the backup and Colt McCoy as third string.

Rookie Dwayne Haskins will make his first NFL start Sunday when the Washington Redskins visit the Buffalo Bills, interim coach Bill Callahan announced Friday. Haskins has completed 12 of 22 passes for 140 yards with four interceptions in two relief appearances since being selected by Washington with the 15th overall pick of the 2019 NFL Draft out of Ohio State. Haskins replaced an injured Case Keenum in Washington's 24-3 loss to the New York Giants on Sept. 29, completing 9 of 17 passes for 107 yards and three interceptions.

When Dwayne Haskins takes the field for the Washington Redskins' first offensive snap Sunday at the Buffalo Bills, he'll be the fourth rookie to start a game in the NFL this season. Unlike fellow first-round picks Kyle Murray of the Arizona Cardinals and Daniel Jones of the New York Giants, it won't be because the organization dubbed it Haskins' time. It'll be more like Jacksonville Jaguars sixth-rounder Gardner Minshew, who was thrust into action Week 1 after Nick Foles was injured.

Rookie Washington Redskins quarterback Dwayne Haskins is finally getting his chance to start in the NFL. The Redskins have struggled to find consistency under center this season since Alex Smith suffered a horrific year-ending leg injury in Week 11 of the 2018 campaign. Case Keenum started the first four games this season before suffering a foot injury in Week 4.
