Dwayne Haskins has thrown his first career TD pass in the NFL
Get ready to see a lot more of these.
On Sunday, former Ohio State quarterback Dwayne Haskins threw his first career touchdown in an NFL uniform. He did so as the Washington Redskins hosted the New York Jets in a mid-November matchup.
The pass came in the fourth quarter with the Redskins trailing the Jets 34-3. Haskins hit Derrius Guice on a screen pass, and Guice turned it into a 45-yard touchdown pass. Below is the clip of the first touchdown pass.

Not only was that the first touchdown for Haskins, it was the first time Washington has reached the end zone since Oct. 13, going three games without a touchdown. Haskins ended the skid.
Haskins was a first-round pick in the 2019 NFL Draft and earned the permanent starting job with the Redskins recently. It’s awfully early in his career, so there will be some growing pains, but he’s trying to take advantage of the opportunity.
