Jimmy Moreland commits a costly penalty (14:47 second quarter): On fourth-and-goal from the Washington 12-yard line, Sam Ficken’s short field goal attempt split the uprights, but a roughing the kicker penalty on Redskins rookie cornerback Jimmy Moreland gave New York a fresh set of downs. Two plays later, Sam Darnold found Robby Anderson in the corner of the end zone for his second touchdown pass of the game and a two-score lead.
Redskins’ penalty negates big gain (13:55 second quarter): On Washington’s ensuing possession, Dwayne Haskins avoided the rush on first down and flicked a pass while on the run deep downfield and into the hands of Terry McLaurin. A holding penalty on Brandon Scherff wiped out the 67-yard completion, and while left tackle Donald Penn protested the call, Scherff removed his helmet to have a word with the referees. That resulted in a 15-yard unsportsmanlike conduct penalty, which backed the Redskins up inside their own 10.
Dustin Hopkins doinks a short field goal (6:40 second quarter): After getting on the board with a field goal following a Sam Darnold interception, the Redskins caught another break on the ensuing kickoff, when Wendell Smallwood recovered Vyncint Smith’s fumble at the New York 27-yard line. Four consecutive carries by Derrius Guice set up third and five from the New York 11 before Haskins’s pass intended for Trey Quinn fell incomplete. Hopkins’s ensuing 29-yard field goal attempt clanged off the right upright, resulting in his first career miss in 37 tries from under 30 yards.
Ryan Griffin’s 45-yard completion leads to a touchdown (1:03 second quarter): After a three-and-out by the Redskins, New York took over at its own 18-yard line with a little more than a minute remaining in the first half. That was more than enough time against Washington’s porous defense. On the second play of the drive, Sam Darnold connected with tight end Ryan Griffin, who didn’t have a defender within 15 yards of him, for a 45-yard gain. “Who’s covering him?” Fox analyst Ronde Barber asked. One play later, Darnold connected with Griffin again for a 16-yard touchdown.
Redskins turn the ball over on downs (7:32 third quarter): Midway through the third quarter, with Washington trailing 20-3, a roughing the kicker penalty on the Jets gave the Redskins a fresh set of downs in New York territory. Washington failed to take advantage of its good fortune. After advancing to the New York 26, Dwayne Haskins fumbled the snap on third and two, resulting in a loss of five. Interim coach Bill Callahan left his offense on the field rather than attempting a long field goal, but Haskins’s fourth-down pass was batted down at the line of scrimmage.
Jamison Crowder burns his former team (13:11 fourth quarter): On third and five from the Washington 29, Sam Darnold threw his career-high fourth touchdown pass of the game, a perfect strike to Crowder, who was wide open along the left sideline after running past cornerback Fabian Moreau. Crowder finished with five catches for 76 yards against the team that drafted him with a fourth-round pick in 2015 and opted not to re-sign him during the offseason.
Dwayne Haskins throws first career touchdown (9:59 fourth quarter): One of the only bright spots of the game for Washington came early in the fourth quarter, when Derrius Guice turned a screen pass from Haskins into a 45-yard touchdown. Guice, who used a stutter step to elude Jets safety Marcus Maye near the goal line, was active for the first time since he tore his meniscus in Week 1. The score also was the first touchdown of the second-year running back’s career.
Final: Jets 34, Redskins 17
- In his first home start, Dwayne Haskins completed 19 of 35 passes for 214 yards, two touchdowns and one interception. The rookie was sacked six times.

- Jets quarterback Sam Darnold completed 19 of 30 passes for 293 yards and a career-high four touchdowns, including one to former Redskins wide receiver Jamison Crowder.
- The Redskins snapped their franchise-worst streak of 17 consecutive quarters without a touchdown, but lost their ninth straight game at home.
Dwayne Haskins throws second touchdown pass: Haskins capped a seven-play, 49-yard drive with a 1-yard touchdown pass to tight end Jeremy Sprinkle on third down. The key play of the drive was a leaping 41-yard catch by Terry McLaurin, who ripped the ball away from his defender as he fell to the ground. Washington’s two-point conversion attempt failed. (Jets 34, Redskins 17, 1:11 fourth quarter)
Dwayne Haskins throws first career touchdown pass: With the outcome of the game no longer in doubt, Haskins and Derrius Guice connected on a 45-yard catch-and-run for the first touchdown of both of their careers. The touchdown was Washington’s first since the third quarter of Week 6, a span of 17 quarters. Haskins then found Trey Quinn in the end zone for a two-point conversion. (Jets 34, Redskins 11, 9:59 fourth quarter)
Turnover leads to a Jets touchdown: Linebacker Neville Hewitt’s interception of Dwayne Haskins deep in Washington territory set up a 1-yard touchdown run by Le’Veon Bell. (Jets 34, Redskins 3, 12:15 fourth quarter)
Jamison Crowder makes touchdown catch: An ugly afternoon went from bad to worse for Washington, as Sam Darnold connected with Crowder, the former Redskins wide receiver, for a 29-yard touchdown to cap a 10-play, 60-yard drive. Crowder ran right by cornerback Fabian Moreau on the play, which resulted in Darnold’s fourth touchdown pass of the game, a new career-high. (Jets 27, Redskins 3, fourth quarter)
Redskins’ drive ends with a sack: One week after sacking Giants rookie quarterback Daniel Jones six times, the Jets’ defense has matched that total against Washington. Dwayne Haskins limped off the field after being taken down by linebacker Frankie Luvu late in the third quarter. (Jets 20, Redskins 3, 2:44 third quarter)
Redskins turn the ball over on downs: Washington’s first drive of the second half appeared to end with Tress Way’s fourth punt of the game, but Jets linebacker Harvey Langi’s roughing the kicker penalty gave the Redskins a fresh set of downs across midfield. After a fumbled snap by Dwayne Haskins set up fourth-and-7 at the New York 31, Haskins’s pass was batted down at the line of scrimmage, resulting in a turnover on downs. (Jets 20, Redskins 3, 7:39 third quarter)
Halftime: Jets 20, Redskins 3
The first half of Dwayne Haskins’s first career home start was ugly. The rookie completed 9 of 13 passes for 52 yards and was sacked four times, as Washington was outgained 262-60. The Redskins’ touchdown-less streak reached 15 full quarters.
Jets add to their lead before halftime: After Washington’s listless offense went three-and-out yet again, New York went 82 yards on three plays to take a 17-point lead. The big play on the touchdown drive was a 45-yard completion from Sam Darnold to tight end Ryan Griffin, who found himself wide open down the left sideline. “Who’s covering him?” Fox analyst Ronde Barber, speaking for Redskins fans everywhere, asked. “The Redskins are just not even contesting this play,” Barber said after Darnold connected with Griffin again for a 16-yard touchdown on the next play. (Jets 20, Redskins 3, 0:36 second quarter)
Washington fails to capitalize on another Jets turnover: Vyncint Smith fumbled the kickoff after Dustin Hopkins put the Redskins on the board and Wendell Smallwood recovered at the New York 27-yard line. This time, Washington couldn’t convert the turnover into points. Derrius Guice carried four times for 16 yards in his first action since Week 1, but the Redskins were forced to settle for a 29-yard field goal attempt. Hopkins clanged it off the right upright, resulting in his first miss from under 30 yards in 37 attempts in his career, according to Fox. (Jets 13, Redskins 3, 6:37 second quarter)
Redskins get on the board: After Dwayne Haskins was sacked for a loss of 15 on third-and-5, Dustin Hopkins drilled a 44-yard field goal for Washington’s first points of the game. (Jets 13, Redskins 3, 9:05 second quarter)
Jon Bostic intercepts Sam Darnold: With Washington in need of a spark, Bostic picked off a pass intended for Ty Montgomery and returned it 25 yards to the New York 16. (Jets 13, Redskins 0, 10:31 second quarter)
Redskins go three-and-out: A holding penalty on Brandon Scherff negated Dwayne Haskins’s 67-yard completion to Terry McLaurin on first down, and an unsportsmanlike conduct penalty on Scherff for arguing the call backed the Redskins up to their own 6-yard line. Three plays later, Tress Way was forced to punt from deep in the Washington end zone, and the Jets began their next drive near midfield. (Jets 13, Redskins 0, 11:44 second quarter)
Jets extend lead after costly penalty: The Jets outgained the Redskins 145-13 in the first quarter and had nine first downs to Washington’s one. The Redskins have failed to scored a touchdown in 14 consecutive quarters, the longest streak in franchise history. Early in the second quarter, New York took advantage of a rookie mistake to take a two-touchdown lead. A roughing the kicker penalty on cornerback Jimmy Moreland on Sam Kicken’s short field goal attempt gave the Jets a fresh set of downs inside the 10. Two plays later, Sam Darnold found Robby Anderson wide open in the corner of the end zone for a 6-yard touchdown pass. (Jets 13, Redskins 0, 14:01 second quarter)
Ryan Kerrigan gets a rare sack: On New York’s second possession, Redskins linebacker recorded his first sack since Week 2. The play resulted in a Sam Darnold fumble that was recovered by the Jets, but ultimately led to a punt. (Jets 6, Redskins 0, 6:24 first quarter)
Redskins’ first possession ends in a punt: Washington picked up an early first down on an 8-yard run by Adrian Peterson, but its first drive stalled after a botched handoff by Dwayne Haskins resulted in a 4-yard loss. On third-and-long, Haskins’s pass intended for Terry McLaurin was broken up. (Jets 6, Redskins 0, 9:10 first quarter)
Jets score on opening drive: The Redskins won the toss and elected to defer, giving the Jets the ball first. New York challenged the first play from scrimmage, a diving catch by former Washington wide receiver Jamison Crowder that was initially ruled incomplete, but changed to an 8-yard completion upon replay review. Crowder had two catches for 25 yards on the seven-play drive, which culminated in a 20-yard touchdown pass to Daniel Brown. Jets quarterback Sam Darnold completed all four of his passes on the drive. Sam Ficken missed the ensuing extra point. (Jets 6, Redskins 0, 11:50 first quarter)
There are no major surprises among the Redskins’ list of inactives. Safety Montae Nicholson, who has been out since Week 7 with an ankle injury, is active. Nicholson is cooperating with authorities after dropping a 21-year-old woman who died of an apparent overdose at his house at the hospital early Thursday morning.
