In the second quarter, Kyle Allen connected with Terry McLaurin on a 52-yard touchdown pass that was followed by an unsuccessful two-point conversion attempt and Washington took a 15-3 lead. Later in the quarter, Allen had a 15-yard touchdown pass to Logan Thomas that gave Washington a 22-3 lead at halftime.

Neither team scored a touchdown in the second half . A 30-yard field goal by Dustin Hopkins at the start of the fourth quarter marked the final points scored and Washington beat Dallas 25-3.
