Jordan Reed hauls in diving, 1-handed grab to set up Washington touchdown

New, comments

Washington’s tight end was injured earlier in the game, but returned and made a spectacular catch to set up a touchdown.

Washington finally got a touchdown to keep pace with the Dallas Cowboys, and it came because tight end Jordan Reed made a spectacular catch to set up his own 5-yard touchdown.

Facing a third down and needing just 3 yards, Kirk Cousins instead tried for Reed downfield, and the tight end came through with a 33-yard reception. He earned a defensive pass interference call, too, but it didn’t stop him from making the grab:

Reed caught a 5-yard touchdown reception two plays later that cut the Cowboys’ lead to 17-12, but a two-point conversion attempt was intercepted.

Earlier in the game, Reed left with a shoulder injury but returned at the beginning of the second half.
