Redskins-Titans: Just The Touchdowns

Posted Aug 8, 2013

The Redskins managed three touchdowns in a 22-21 preseason victory over the Tennessee Titans on Thursday night, one each by the first, second and third offensive units.

The Redskins managed three touchdowns in a 22-21 preseason victory over the Tennessee Titans on Thursday night, one each by the first, second and third offensive units.

Here's a look back at score, which added up to enough for a Washington Redskins preseason opener victory.


No. 1: Kirk Cousins To Fred Davis

The last time Kirk Cousins threw a touchdown was in Week 15 of the 2012 season against the Cleveland Browns.

Getting the preseason start tonight, Cousins reaffirmed why Redskins coaches invest two 2012 draft picks in quarterbacks, throwing a cool six-for-seven for 52 yards and a a 137.2 passer rating.

His touchdown throw to Fred Davis came on his second and final drive of the evening, and capped off an impressive return for the team's top tight end.

Davis was felled by an Achilles' injury in Week 7 last season, but showed no lingering pain or hesitation tonight, making tough catches, blocking and taking big hits.

The touchdown gave the Redskins a 7-0 lead and was Davis' first touchdown of any kind since Week 12 of the 2011 season. As far as preseason action goes, it was Davis' first score since the first game of the 2010 preseason slate against the Buffalo Bills:


No. 2: Rex Grossman To Leonard Hankerson

Rex Grossman signed his fourth one-year contract with the Redskins this offseason, returning to a franchise that has embraced his veteran presence on the sideline.

Grossman came out of the gate a little shaky tonight, but sharpened up throughout the second quarter, eventually working the team down into the red zone.

Then, setting up a screen, Hankerson took the pass and waited for left tackle Tom Compton to clear the defenders and the path to the end zone.

Hankerson did the rest, running to the goal line and vaulting over the pile for the game-tying score:


No. 3: Pat White Does It All

The last time Pat White stood on an NFL gridiron, he suffered what was then believed to be a career-ending concussion. His career line: four preseason completions, no touchdowns.

Fast-forward four seasons and Pat White is back on the football field, better than ever. Driving the Redskins down the field in the final two minutes of the game, White took a designed run around the end for a one yard gain.

With time ticking down, White became a passer, dropping back and looking for an open man. Finding none, he tucked the ball and ran the nine yards for the score.

His final line: five completions and a touchdown. Welcome to the NFL, Pat White:


BONUS: Pat White To Emmanuel Ogbuehi 2-Point Conversion

By it's very definition, an article devoted to "Just The Touchdowns" should remain dedicated to just touchdowns.

However, given the nature of the PAT process, sometimes what happens after a touchdown is more relevant even than the score itself.

After scoring their third touchdown of the evening, the Redskins faced three realistic outcomes, beginning with trotting Kai Forbath out for the extra point and the tie with less than two minutes remaining.

Forbath is the closest thing to automatic the Redskins have had in a long time, and the Redskins would likely choose this option if it were the regular season.

Instead, head coach Mike Shanahan elected to gamble, taking the win or the loss with the two-point conversion try. As tonight's victory would indicate, the try worked:
