Dwayne Haskins misses Redskins' final play to take selfies with fans

Dwayne Haskins was too busy celebrating to lead the victory formation

The first-round draft pick couldn't be bothered to participate in the "victory formation" (granted, something Washington doesn't get much chance to implement during a 2-9 season), because he was posing for a series of selfies with spectators.

"We were looking for him", interim coach Bill Callahan told The Washington Post. It marked Haskins' first career win as a starting quarterback and ended the team's four-game losing streak. "But I'll get it next time". "?I was so hype", he said. I think he thought it was over. "I'm glad we won".

No one felt the sigh of relief more than Redskins rookie quarterback Dwayne Haskins.

Haskins had a shaky afternoon overall in his third National Football League start, completing only 13 of 29 passes for 156 yards, but he led Washington down the field for a go-ahead field goal.

Former Redskins quarterback Joe Theismann didn't see the amusing side however. But Theismann wasn't a fan of what happened Sunday, calling the selfie "unprofessional and wrong".

López-Verduzco, however, has since attempted to shift the blame away from Haskins, insisting he distracted the 22-year-old.

The Redskins scored 19-16 in the game, but they had 16 seconds remaining, but he recovered the ball with two seconds remaining after Fabian Moreau intercepted Jeff Driskel.

"How do miss the last snap of a game because ur taking selfies". "At the end of the day it's a picture of a new player in the league and the new fan of the league".

Haskins completed 13 of 29 passes for 156 yards and an interception in the win.

With Haskins away from the field, backup Case Keenum took a knee to run out the clock in Washington's second win of the season.
