Washington Redskins quarterback Dwayne Haskins missed the last play of his first NFL victory this past Sunday. The reason? He was taking selfies with fans in the stands.
Haskins went 13 for 29 for 156 yards and led the Redskins to a go-ahead field goal with just seconds left, after which an interception by Washington ensured them the victory. Haskins said he thought the game was over, so he went to the stands to celebrate with fans, taking a selfie with a few. Unfortunately for him, there was still time on the clock after the interception, and Washington needed to run a final play to run out the clock. Backup quarterback Case Keenum had to come in to take the final snap.
Said Haskins: “I thought the game was over with already, but I’ll get it next time."
Coach Bill Callahan was unamused and said the team would discuss the incident with Haskins. Fans were a bit more understanding, saying they understood how excited he was.
