GREATER LANDOVER, Md. — Rookie running back Jaret Patterson did a little bit of everything and scored the go-ahead touchdown in the fourth quarter in Washington’s 17-13 preseason victory over the Cincinnati Bengals on Friday night.
Patterson, an undrafted free agent from Buffalo, ran for 71 yards, caught three passes for 25 yards, and had a 37-yard kickoff return. His 1-yard scoring plunge was Washington’s only touchdown.
Dustin Hopkins had three field goals for Washington.
Cincinnati held out quarterback Joe Burrow for the second week in a row and the offense struggled. Brandon Allen started in his place and played through the first drive of the second half, finishing 8 of 17 for 70 yards.
