In the fourth quarter of the Washington Redskins' 34-17 loss to the New York Jets in Week 11, second-year running back Derrius Guice scored the first touchdown of his NFL career on a 45-yard pass from Dwayne Haskins.

The milestone wasn't only significant for Guice – it broke the longest touchdown drought in the league since 2001. Prior to the score, the Redskins had gone 16 quarters without an offensive, defensive or special teams touchdown, dating back to the fourth quarter against the Miami Dolphins in Week 6.

The Redskins have struggled mightily on offense this season, as they average an NFL-low 12.5 points per game. Washington is also second to last in yards per game (255.7), as it currently owns the second-worst record in the NFL (1-9) behind the 0-10 Cincinnati Bengals.

Prior to their Week 11 loss the Jets, Redskins head coach Bill Callahan announced that Haskins would start for the remainder of the season. Washington selected Haskins with the 15th pick of the 2019 NFL draft. He has thrown two touchdowns to five picks across four games this season, two as a starter and two as a sub.

Up next for the Redskins is a home matchup with the Detroit Lions, who are reeling after losing quarterback Matthew Stafford to a fractured back. The scoring may be tough to come by in the weeks following though, with matchups against the imposing defenses of the Green Bay Packers, Carolina Panthers and Philadelphia Eagles.
