Flashback Friday: Jason Campbell Leads Redskins To Win Against Panthers
The Washington Redskins are getting ready to take on the Carolina Panthers this Monday at home. The Redskins and Panthers have played together many times, with the Redskins winning 7 out of 12 games. The last time the Redskins won a game against the Panthers was in 2006 with former Redskins quarterback Jason Campbell.
The game started off to a slow start with no team scoring any points until three minutes were left in the first quarter. The Panthers were the first team to put any points on the board with a field goal late in the first. Washington came back during the second quarter and tied the game 3-3. With four seconds left in the second quarter the Panthers took the lead with another field goal.
Until the third quarter, field goals were the only points from both teams. The Redskins went into the second half of the game losing 9-6, but that did not last long. At the very end of the third quarter Campbell completed a 4-yard touchdown pass to Randle El to put them back in the lead of the game. The Panthers tried to catch up in the middle of the fourth quarter with a touchdown and an extra point. That play had them in the lead until the Redskins did the same.
Campbell completed a 66-yard touchdown pass to Chris Cooley and with their extra point kick being good, put the Redskins back in the lead to win the game 17-13. This game was the first win for Jason Campbell with the Redskins. Campbell finished 11 for 23 for 118 yards with one interception and two touchdowns
A win for the Redskins on Monday will be their first win against the Panthers since this 2006 game and keep them in the lead of their all time series history. This will also be their first Monday Night Football game win since the 2012 season.
