JACKSONVILLE Josh Doctson Jersey , Fla. (AP) — p after his first NFL start in seven years.Johnson, who played Madden NFL 19 to learn his new teammates’ names, led Washington on two scoring drives in the fourth quarter to beat the Jacksonville Jaguars 16-13 on Sunday.With a lot of help from running back Adrian Peterson, Johnson drove the Redskins (7-7) into field-goal range in the closing minutes and set up Dustin Hopkins‘ 36-yard field goal on the final play. Hopkins drilled it, ending Washington’s four-game losing streak and keeping it on the fringe of the NFC playoff picture.Article continues below ...It was the first victory of Johnson’s professional career — he had been 0-5 as a starter — and the first for the Redskins since quarterback Alex Smith broke his right leg last month.The 32-year-old Johnson, the franchise’s fourth starting quarterback in as many weeks, completed 16 of 25 passes for 151 yards and the score. He also ran for 49 yards.“I know every opportunity I get could be my last one,” Johnson said. “It’s the reality of my situation, so I just wanted to leave it all on the field. I owe the game that much because I love it that much. For me to go out there and not leave it on the field, I would be disrespecting it. If I had the opportunity to go out and make a play, I’m going to do it.”His 6-yard touchdown pass to Jeremy Sprinkle with 5:47 remaining tied the game. The Redskins got the ball back with an interception on the ensuing possession, and Peterson carried five times for 28 yards and had a 7-yard reception to get the team close enough for Hopkins to win it.“Josh made enough plays, and people around him made enough plays to get us the victory,” Redskins coach Jay Gruden said.Peterson finished with 51 on the ground, more than half of those coming on the winning drive.“It was a situation where it was do or die,” Peterson said. “It was not that serious, but obviously for our season and what we’re trying to accomplish, we needed this W to get out of this funk by any means necessary. One point, two points, we didn’t care.”The Jaguars (4-10) have dropped nine of 10, raising more questions about the future of coach Doug Marrone, top decision-maker Tom Coughlin and general manager Dave Caldwell.Jacksonville managed 192 yards, another anemic performance under Marrone. The Jags now have double-digit losses for the seventh time in the last eight years.Cody Kessler was 9 of 17 passing for 57 yards with an interception in his third start since replacing Blake Bortles. He has directed one touchdown drive in 31 possessions.Kessler limped through the locker room with red marks and scratches on his back after being sacked six times behind a makeshift offensive line. He also was Jacksonville’s leading rusher with 68 yards on the ground, 22 more than Leonard Fournette.Fournette touched the ball just once in the second half and returned kickoffs for the first time in his career. Marrone said the plan was to get a better look at undrafted rookie Dave Williams.“He’s been here working hard so we just wanted to see him in there and see what he can do,” Marrone said.Jacksonville’s lone highlight was Dede Westbrook returning a punt 74 yards for a touchdown late in the second quarter.WELCOME HOMESmith was released from the hospital after multiple surgeries to his broken right leg. His wife, Elizabeth Smith, posted an update Sunday on Instagram and said she was grateful to have her husband home.Smith sustained a spiral fracture to his right leg when he was sacked in a game against Houston on Nov. 18. He underwent surgery the following day to repair his fibula and tibia. Two media outlets reported that a leg infection complicated his recovery and required further procedures.KEY INJURIESRedskins tight end Vernon Davis was evaluated for a head and neck injury and cleared to return, then left to be re-evaluated for a concussion in the fourth. … Jaguars rookie safety Ronnie Harrison injured his left knee on Washington’s first series, limped to the sideline and did not return. Jarrod Wilson replaced Harrison and had two pass breakups before leaving with a leg injury. … Redskins offensive lineman Ty Nsekhe (knee), cornerback Joshua Holsey (knee) and cornerback Danny Johnson (finger).UP NEXTRedskins: stay in the AFC South and play at Tennessee on Saturday.Jaguars: remain in the Sunshine State and play at Miami next Sunday. NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — Washington cornerback Josh Norman sat in his locker still in his uniform 45 minutes after the Redskins‘ latest and costliest loss.Norman and the rest of the Redskins left all they had left on the field.Josh Johnson threw for 153 yards and a touchdown in his second straight start as Washington’s fourth different quarterback this season only to be intercepted not once Sean Taylor Jersey , but twice in the final 1:17 Saturday in a 25-16 loss to the Tennessee Titans.The Redskins (7-8) aren’t mathematically eliminated just yet after their fifth loss in six games. But they need losses at least by Minnesota and Seattle on Sunday to even have a chance in their regular season finale against Philadelphia.Making this loss hurt even more is that the Redskins led for much of the game after Johnson threw a 7-yard touchdown pass to Michael Floyd in the second quarter after the second-longest drive in the NFL this season. Washington used up 10 minutes, 58 seconds over 17 plays and 93 yards. Adrian Peterson ran for 119 yards, and Dustin Hopkins kicked field goals of 50, 40 and 46 yards for a 16-12 lead in the fourth quarter.Then the Titans, with their backup quarterback no less, went 75 yards in seven plays. Blaine Gabbert came off the bench when Washington defensive end Jonathan Allen knocked Marcus Mariota out of the game with 48 seconds left in the first half. Gabbert became the first backup to lead the Titans to a victory in the seven games Mariota has left with an injury, throwing a 2-yard TD pass to MyCole Pruitt with 4:30 left.Then Johnson, who led Washington to a fourth-quarter comeback to win in Jacksonville last week, had the ball and a chance for another big win.But Titans cornerback Malcolm Butler pressured Johnson with a blitz, and Titans safety Kevin Byard picked off his pass with 1:17 left. The Redskins forced Tennessee to punt one last time, giving them 14 seconds left down 19-16. Then Butler intercepted Johnson’s final pass, then ran 56 yards to the end zone for the clincher.Washington coach Jay Gruden wasn’t ready when the game ended to sum up the Redskins’ playoff hopes.“I’m just going to watch the games (Sunday) I guess and take a day off, our players will, and figure out what happens next,” Gruden said.The Redskins held the ball for 33 minutes and had three sacks. Yet they hurt themselves with eight penalties for 49 yards, and had a couple more players deal with injuries in a season where the list already had been long enough. This time, guard Zac Kerin hurt a knee but was able to return. Defensive end Matt Ioannidis hurt a hamstring.The frustrations certainly seemed to boil over for Norman after the game.Taylor Lewan, the Titans’ three-time Pro Bowl left tackle, was caught in video by NBC Sports Washington, coming by the Washington bench. Norman threw his helmet at Lewan, slapped at his arm and face mask before bumping up against the left tackle. Titans center Ben Jones got between the men, and Norman slapped at Lewan’s back.Norman did not comment. Lewan said Norman was throwing a “hissy fit” as the left tackle tried to help Henry up after a run.“He was trying to hurt Derrick during that 4-minute, and that’s (expletive),” Lewan said. “That’s not the way football is supposed to be played.”For the Redskins, it’s a loss that could finish off their playoff hopes. Pro Bowl linebacker Ryan Kerrigan, who had a sack, said that doesn’t matter for now.“We have one more game at home to make a splash,” Kerrigan said. “You can’t give up or say it’s over and lay down. I’m going to keep fighting forever, and that’s just how it’s going to be.”
