Josh Johnson completes first pass attempt since 2011

NFL.com

Mark Sanchez's brief time as the Redskins' starter came to an end Sunday.

Sanchez had a first half he'd likely want to forget, tossing two interceptions (including a pass that was tipped and returned for a touchdown) and completing just 6 of 14 attempts for 38 yards.

Josh Johnson replaced Sanchez in the third quarter and eventually led a pair of scoring drives, bringing a silver lining to the Redskins' 40-16 loss to the New York Giants.

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.
