It’s been an eventful season for the Washington soccer team, and while the season ends in Week 18, it has something to celebrate ahead of the offseason.
In the team’s first practice in the fourth quarter, running back Antonio Gibson broke the 1,000-yard mark for the first time in his career.
Later on the disc, he ran the ball 18 yards without touching for his seventh rushing touchdown of the year.
The run also gave him a new career high in rushing yards at 146. His previous career high came against the Dallas Cowboys in 2020 with 128 yards.
With Gibson running for 1,000 yards and Terry McLaurin catching 1,000 himself, they become the first Washington running-receiving duo to eclipse 1,000 yards since 2014 when running back Alfred Morris and wide receiver DeSean Jackson accomplished. the feat.
With the NFL implementing a 17th game this season, records like these have more potential to break. Even though McLaurin has played every game for Washington this season, Gibson’s 1,000 yards came in 15 games after missing two games in December against the San Francisco 49ers and Seattle Seahawks.
After Gibson’s touchdown, the Giants returned it on the first play of their next possession after Jake Fromm missed the ball without touching. The fumble was picked up by defensive lineman Tim Settle.
Washington kicker Joey Slye kicked a field goal to extend his lead to 22-7 and end his season with a calm and comfortable victory.
