Redskins rookie quarterback Dwayne Haskins earned his first victory as an NFL starting quarterback on Sunday, but his play was not the main storyline after the game. 

After a game-sealing interception by Fabian Moreau with a handful of seconds remaining, the Redskins needed just one snap in victory formation to end the game. But backup quarterback Case Keenum took the field for the snap, rather than Haskins, because the rookie was taking a selfie and engaging with fans behind the team's bench.

Haskins told reporters after the game that he thought the game was already over and vowed it won't happen again. Interim head coach Bill Callahan said the team was "looking for [Dwayne]," and that he will address it with Haskins later.

Right tackle Morgan Moses joined The Sports Junkies on Monday, and explained why in his opinion, the situation is not a big deal and has been blown out of the water.

"The guy got his first career [win]. I'm not going to sit here and beat him up on him not being out there," Moses said on Haskins. "He's a young quarterback, man, he's in the moment. He thought the game was over."

On the previous Redskins drive, the rookie completed a crucial pair of passes to wide receiver Terry McLaurin to set up kicker Dustin Hopkins 39-yard game-winning field goal. It was Haskins' first game-winning drive of his career as well.

 

"That was big for him," Moses said. "He's talking to everybody, we're emotional on the sidelines. It's a great feeling for him."

While the right tackle plans to give the rookie QB a pass this time, he did mention Haskins needs to be a little more engaged in what's going on in the future.

In other words, a situation like the one that transpired on Sunday can never happen again. There are bigger things with Haskins to be concerned about, such as accuracy troubles he suffered through all afternoon vs. Detroit. 

"As a young guy, you just have to be a little more locked in and focused on that," he said. "I know the coaches will get to it and correct it."
