In reality, Callahan didn't decide to give Haskins his first start ahead of the Bills game until it was clear Case Keenum couldn't play on Sunday. If they bench him once again, as opposed to giving him more opportunities proportionate to his progress, when there is nothing to lose, then they risk wasting valuable time that could be spent on catalyzing development.
The Ohio State product was 15-for-22 (68.2 percent) for 144 yards with no touchdowns and no interceptions. Singletary received Buffalo's first 20-carry workload of 2019 as the Bills ran the ball a season-high 39 times.
Buffalo's run defense started the game by continuing its porous performance from a week earlier, when it allowed a season-worst 218 yards rushing in a 31-13 loss to Philadelphia. He's in his fifth season with Washington after being promoted from the practice squad.
The last time the Redskins and Bills faced off was in 2015 when Washington won 35-25 at FedEx Field. However, Buffalo will enter Sunday's contest full of confidence, having beaten Washington in four its last five games at home.
I thought his reads were clean, he put us in position, he got out of the pocket and used his feet a couple of times.
The defense responded in the second half by limiting Washington to 78 yards of offense and a field goal.
Up 17-9, the Bills finally put the game away in the final six minutes, starting with cornerback Tre'Davious White sacking Haskins for a 9-yard loss. The Bills defense rank just 28th against the run and with Adrian Peterson healthy, perhaps this is one of those turn-back-the-clock moments for the future Hall of Famer.
Washington was just 2-of-11 on third down, 0-for-1 on fourth down and 0-for-2 in the red zone.
In the fourth quarter, Washington was still deep in its own half and facing third-and-10 when Haskins took a nine-yard loss on a sack. Frazier was the Vikings defensive coordinator during Peterson's rookie season in 2007, and eventually took over as Minnesota's head coach. We can tell you that the model is leaning Under, and it also says one side of the spread has all the value.
Washington: Bye week. Host the New York Jets on November 17.
- Buffalo wide receiver John Brown (4 catches, 76 yards) became the second Bill ever to have at least four catches and 50 receiving yards for eight straight games.
