JACKSONVILLE, Fla. — The Jacksonville Jaguars (4-10) ended their home slate with a 16-13 loss to the Washington Redskins (7-7) at TIAA Bank Field Sunday in front of an announced crowd of 67,577.
A late touchdown from Josh Johnson to Jeremy Sprinkle with 5:47 remaining tied the game at 13. A Cody Kessler interception with 2:31 remaining gave the ball back to the Redskins, who marched down the field and capped it off with a 36-yard field goal by Florida State alum Dustin Hopkins.
Dede Westbrook's 74-yard punt-return touchdown and two field goals by newly-signed kicker Kai Forbath were all the Jaguars could manage on offense.
Making the third start of his tenure with Jacksonville, quarterback Cody Kessler was 9 of 17 for 57 yards. He was sacked six times. Kessler also rushed for 68 yards, the most by any Jaguar.
Johnson, who was signed by the Redskins less than two weeks ago, finished the day 16 of 25 for 151 yards. The Jaguars did hold running back Adrian Peterson to 51 yards.
Jacksonville travels to Miami on Dec. 23, and then Houston on Dec. 30 to close out the 2018 season.
