In Week 17, Washington scores on their opening drive for first time of the season


It took all year but they finally did it.

The Washington Football Team had scored exactly 0 points on their first possession of each game all season.

Three different quarterbacks started games this season for Washington. They had sixteen opening drives in sixteen games and scored no points.

That is until Week 17 against the Philadelphia Eagles.

After the Eagles went three-and-out, Alex Smith engineered a 15-play, 91-yard touchdown drive to snap Washington’s long scoring drought.

Washington snapped the cold streak by converting their fourth third down on the drive with Smith tossing a five-yard touchdown pass to Terry McLaurin.

So it seems Washington's offense was really waiting all year for Sunday night. (Must be big Carrie Underwood fans.)

And everyone was excited for the scoring drought to finally be over.
