Sanchez stepped into the starting role after Colt McCoy broke his leg last week and had a miserable afternoon under center. McCoy suffered the injury after replacing actual starter Alex Smith, who suffered a broken leg in November.
Johnson attempted his first regular-season pass since 2011 Sunday, which was his first regular-season appearance in a game since the 2014 season when he was with the 49ers.
Johnson led an 11-play drive that saw the Redskins get down to New York’s 21-yard line, but fell short on a conversion attempt on fourth down in a blowout. On the Redskins‘ next possession, Johnson led a five-play drive that started at New York’s 33 and ended in a Johnson rushing touchdown. He threw a touchdown pass to Jamison Crowder midway through the fourth quarter, producing a total of 16 points for Washington (including successful two-point conversions).
Johnson spent the 2018 preseason with the Oakland Raiders, and was also the first-overall pick of the San Diego Fleet in the Alliance of American Football QB draft.
