Washington Redskins vs. Miami Dolphins: Recap and Highlights

The Washington Redskins faced the Miami Dolphins on Oct. 13, 2019, in Week 6 of the 2019 NFL season. Here are some of the highlights from the game.

The Washington Redskins faced the Miami Dolphins in what could have been a battle for the first selection, just in week 6 of the 2019 NFL season. The game went as expected, with limited controversy, with two very bleak rosters.

Five weeks in the books and these two teams have only done one thing; embarrass themselves. But this game was winnable for both teams, and at the end of the day, it was very good football. Competitive, made for the old school fan, one who was there to see war. And no matter what the organizations may want, the players came to play ball.

The Redskins’ defense dominated early on in the first, and it took until the second quarter to see our first score. At 11:34 in the second quarterback, Case Keenum connected with wide receiver Terry McLaurin for a 25-yard touchdown. Prior, the Redskins were driving, with 93 yards in just eight plays, all in less than four minutes — a drive off the back of Adrian Peterson’s running, who had 23 carries for 118 yards, not fumbling once, while averaging five yards per carry.

Dolphins kicker Jason Sanders hit a 39-yard field goal to end the first half, giving a 7-3 score after two quarters.

The Redskins once again drove down the field and scored, again thanks to Terry McLaurin. After six plays for 70 yards, Case Keenum connected to McLaurin for a monstrous 33-yard touchdown pass. With 9:42 left in the third, a score of 14-3 left many Miami fans disappointed, once again. And after another Redskins drive, kicker Dustin Hopkins boosted the score by three with another field goal. Heading into the fourth quarter, the Redskins dominated the game, 17-3. But this was just the start of the game from a fan’s perspective. The Dolphins went into the fourth with a newborn fire.

After a nine-play, 55-yard drive, the Dolphins punched in their first touchdown off of a one-yard run by Kalen Ballage. Now the score was 17-10 with nine minutes left, and all of a sudden this game was far from over. After multiple defensive and offensive stands with no scores, the Dolphins had the ball with only two minutes left and one more chance. Ryan Fitzpatrick took the field with only one goal: to win. And he drove. After some sloppy defensive play by the Redskins’ secondary, the Dolphins went 75 yards in less than two minutes. And the end result was an 11-yard pass to Davante Parker. But the Dolphins went for two and had an incomplete pass to end the game. All in all, Miami had absolutely nothing to lose. I personally cannot criticize this move, but I can understand why someone would.

The final score was 17-16, as the Redskins’ defense prevailed for the first time this year. The Dolphins will take on the Buffalo Bills next week, in another guaranteed loss, while the Redskins have the same fate against the 49ers this week. No matter the score of any game for the rest of this year, this game will be a deciding factor in who gets the first selection.
