Redskins get 96-yard INT for TD, Dwayne Haskins shines in loss to Bengals

Aug. 16 (UPI) -- The Washington Redskins returned a 96-yard interception for a touchdown on the first drive of the game, but ultimately lost to the Cincinnati Bengals in their preseason contest Thursday night.

Redskins rookie quarterback Dwayne Haskins looked better in his second preseason appearance, which resulted in a 23-13 loss at FedEx Field in Landover, Md.

The ball was deflected near the line of scrimmage and fell into the hands of Redskins defender Montae Nicholson, who ran to his left and down the sideline untouched for the 96-yard score.

Haskins completed a beautiful 55-yard scoring toss to Robert Davis in the second quarter for his first touchdown of the preseason, and Washington led 13-7 at halftime.

Finley threw another touchdown pass for the Bengals in the third quarter and Cincinnati connected on a Tristan Vizcaino 57-yard field goal in the fourth.

Washington Redskins strong safety Montae Nicholson (35) put his team on the board first with a first-quarter interception return for a touchdown, before the Cincinnati Bengals mounted a comeback in a preseason clash Thursday at FedExField in Landover, Md.
