Washington made a lot of plays, and controlled the ball for most of the 1st half. That didn’t translate into points as they continue to squander their opportunities. Washington drove down to the red zone on the opening drive, but after two big losses, they punted the ball instead of going for a 54 yard FG. It didn’t get much better from that point and they only scored one FG in the first half. Their final drive ended on Terry McLaurin’s first fumble in the NFL...
