The Washington Football team rallied from down 17-7 against the Philadelphia Eagles to win the game 27-17.
Look, in my NFL quarterback power rankings I ranked Dwayne Haskins week 1 number 32. This will surely change. I was dead wrong. Haskins showed true leadership and the ability to come back and win this game. A truly inspiring story.
