Peterson, McLaurin Lead Redskins Past Dolphins For First Win Of The Season

"I was disappointed, but I understood the situation", Rosen said.

But on Sunday, they did actually have an opportunity to win an NFL football game.

"It was obviously a disappointment for me, but we nearly came close to our first team win, which is awesome regardless of who is behind center". Heck, they even got a taste of FitzMagic, which almost screwed up the franchise's carefully crafted plan to get the first pick of the draft.

They played the Dolphins, one of the few teams whose offensive and defensive performances have been less impressive than their own this season.

Josh Rosen has not been good for them and he was even benched against Washington. "If we feel like we need a spark and Fitz has to go in, we'll continue to do that".

"Games like this, two winless teams, everybody pulls out the stops", Callahan said. Miami had been outscored 98-0 in the second half before Fitzpatrick's nine-play, 55-yard drive that ended with a Kalen Ballage rushing touchdown, trimming the deficit to 17-10.

It's the first time the Texans haven't allowed a sack in consecutive weeks since the first two games of the 2014 season. And on Sunday against the Chiefs (4-2), the Texans (4-2) ran for a combined 192 yards and three touchdowns.


Drake, however, said another running back practiced that play, and not him.

In most cases when you get a 14-point lead against the Dolphins, you can go ahead and chalk up the win, but these Dolphins actually fought back with a huge fourth quarter.

Drake said, "I have to hold my end of the bargain up".

The second-year quarterback had a miserable afternoon against Washington. "We wanted to give him the chance to do that".

The rookie receiver caught four passes for 100 yards, which helped the Redskins shoot out to a 17-3 lead.

Rosen said Wednesday that he hoped to use these past 12 games as an audition to prove to Flores and Dolphins general manager Chris Grier that he could be the team's long-term quarterback. Flores said he decided early in the fourth quarter that he was going for the two-point conversion if they tied the game, playing for a win instead of overtime.
