Alex Smith just had his first back-to-back 300 yard passing games in his career. He finished his first start in 728 days with a 38/55 390 yard stat line. J.D. McKissic scored his first TD since 2017, and Antonio Gibson scored twice.

Washington entered the 2nd half with in a 17-3 hole following another 1st half filled with missed opportunities. They tied it up with under a minute to go in a game that looked like it was going to overtime. Matthew Stafford wasn’t having that, and he got them in field goal range with the help of a Chase Young roughing the passer penalty. Matt Prater finished it off with a 59 yard FG.
