Tress Way's nearly immaculate season ruined thanks to Dede Westbrook return TD

Tress Way's nearly immaculate season ruined thanks to Dede Westbrook return TD

Through 14 weeks of the 2018 NFL season, the Redskins season MVP award was all but locked up. Tress Way, the Redskins starting punter, has been the team's most consistent player, and is likely to earn a trip to the Pro Bowl.

It's never a great sign when a team's MVP is the punter, but that is the state of affairs for of the 2018 Redskins. 

Way has taken the field for 66 punts prior to Week 15 vs. the Jaguars with 36 being downed inside the 20-yard line. Way leads the NFL in punts inside the 20-yard line, and opponents are averaging just 7.7 yards per return.

The first half of Week 15 in Jacksonville looked to add a bunch of clips to Way's season-long highlight reel. Way attempted five punts, with the two of the first four downed inside the 20. Then, with just seconds remaining in the first half, Way attempted his fifth punt, a 52-yarder to Dede Westbrook.

A few seconds later, Westbrook was off to the races, running 74-yards for a touchdown, giving the Jaguars a 10-3 lead.  As you will see below, Byron Marshall attempted to make a tackle, but instead tackled the forward blocker, clearing a better path for Westbrook.

It was the first return touchdown given up by the Redskins all season, and now Way's nearly immaculate season is tarnished, even if he didn't have all that much to do with the return TD.
