The tone of the game completely changed when Cincinnati Bengals QB Joe Burrow went down screaming in pain from a left knee injury. The rookie has been phenomenal this season, and looked like he was poised to continue picking apart Washington's defense apart in the 2nd half.

Washington took full advantage of a demoralized Bengals team, and shut them out in the 2nd half. Burrow's replacement, Ryan Finley, got abused by Washington's pass rush, and gave up a pick on his final drive. Antonio Gibson had one of his best days on the ground, and helped Washington lock up their first win since Week 7.
