Washington comes back to run wild on Panthers

The Panthers had a perfect first quarter. And that was it.

Washington actually played the entire game, almost, and won.

The Panthers blew a 14-0 lead to lose 29-21 to Washington, which now, somehow, has a two-game winning streak.

The Panthers offense flat-lined after two consecutive touchdown drives to start the game, while Washington was just getting started running the ball.

Running back Derrius Guice finished the game with 129 yards and two touchdowns and Adrian Peterson added 99 yards and a score, against a Panthers defense which has struggled against the run most of the year.

Coupled with an opportunistic defense, Washington (3-9) gradually got back in the game and eventually took over.

The Panthers (5-7) recovered an onside kick late in the game (Washington seemed confused that they were supposed to try to catch it), giving them a chance late. But Panthers quarterback Kyle Allen fumbled away their fourth-and-goal chance, killing yet another game in a short-yardage situation in which a Cam Newton might have been handy.

  1. Yeah bc cam newton has been so great the last few years i am sure he would have scored lol. This is one of the worse defenses and offensive lines i have ever seen the panthers have even going back to the seifert years…

  2. The Panthers need to try everything to draft Jake Fromm who is the most NFL ready QB after playing in a pro style offense. Kyle Allen is not the answer.

  3. I’m glad the Redskins players performed well enough to get the win. I do not, however, want them to have enough success to cause Dan Snyder to keep Bruce Allen and Co. But hey, a win’s a win, I guess

  4. Skins are out of the basement. Another pick for Moreau, career game for Guice, a sack and a half for Sweat, turnover free football from Haskins, and the three rookie receivers continue to contribute. I know they’re killing their draft pick but this is nice to see. Here’s hoping they can ruin the Cowboys season in Week 17.

    Maybe its me but I remember last season the Panthers started the season at 6-2 and Cam Newton was having a “MVP” type season up until his injury. But I do realize for some “Fans” its ALWAYS what have you done for me Lately and a mere 12 months Seems like an Eternity! Lol #IHopeCamGoesSomewhereWhereHeIsAppreciated

  6. Say what you want about Haskins but given that his offensive line is a pile of crap he’s done pretty good and led them to their second straight win. When was the last time they won two straight?….I can’t remember that far back.

  7. When they actually had a certain quarterback recently, they won 2 straight many times.

  8. It’s scary and sad to think that the Redskins right now are 3-9 and STILL have a chance at winning the division. Not going to happen but just shows how sad the NFC East is this season.

  9. Washington amazingly improved its draft position despite the win. Miami also won to stay tied with Washington at three wins, and in the course of the weekend the strength of schedule flipped. Unbelievable.
