There wasn't much to smile about for Washington on Sunday, but a pair of second-year veterans gave fans of the Burgundy and Gold something to (hopefully) be excited about for the future.

With Washington down big in the third quarter, Dwayne Haskins fired a quick slant route to Terry McLaurin. The sophomore stud wideout would do the rest, outrunning the Arizona secondary for a 25-yard touchdown.

The touchdown was McLaurin's third catch on the drive and his seventh on the day. On the play, No. 17 outran Cardinals cornerback Patrick Peterson, a likely future Hall of Famer and one of the league's best at his position.

McLaurin would finish Sunday's contest with seven catches for 125 yards and a touchdown, the fourth 100-yard game of his brief NFL career.

On a day that Washington's offense struggled for much of the afternoon, McLaurin continued to show why the organization is so excited about his potential.

The score was the first of the season from Haskins to McLaurin. McLaurin hauled in seven touchdowns as a rookie in 2019, but just two came from Haskins, who started seven of Washington's final eight games.
