The play of Redskins rookie wide receiver Terry McLaurin has been without a doubt the best storyline of an otherwise disappointing season in Washington.
He's already made NFL history, becoming the first rookie wide receiver to score a touchdown and record at least five receptions in his first three NFL games. On Sunday, McLaurin continued to build on his already impressive rookie season, finding the end zone twice against the Dolphins.
In the second quarter with the score still tied at zero, McLaurin ran a gorgeous route, faking a deep post before cutting back to the left corner of the end zone. Quarterback Case Keenum found No. 17 perfectly in stride, as the rookie hauled in his fourth touchdown of the season to give the Redskins a 7-0 lead.
On his second touchdown, the rookie was lined up in the slot with Miami playing zone coverage. McLaurin beat the initial Dolphins cornerback off the line, and Keenum found the opening in the zone along the left sideline for an easy, wide-open touchdown.
After initially celebrating with his teammates, the rookie had a special treat for someone in the stands. McLaurin walked over to the front row of the Hard Rock Stadium and gave one young Redskins fan a moment he will never forget.
In five games, McLaurin has five touchdowns, 408 yards, and 23 receptions. And counting.
While the Redskins won't be making any noise in the playoffs, the Ohio State product is certainly making his case for the NFL's Offensive Rookie of the Year Award.
