The Associated Press
LANDOVER, Md. (AP) Kai Forbath kicked a 22-yard field goal on the last play of the game, and Colt McCoy stepped in after Kirk Cousins was benched at halftime Sunday to lead the Washington Redskins to a 19-17 win over the Tennessee Titans.
McCoy completed 11 of 12 passes for 128 yards and a touchdown in his first meaningful role in a win since Nov. 20, 2011, when he led the Cleveland Browns to a 14-10 victory over the Jacksonville Jaguars.
The Redskins snapped a four-game losing streak to improve to 2-5. The Titans fell to 2-5.
McCoy's first pass was a career-long 70-yard touchdown to Pierre Garcon after the Redskins trailed 10-6 at halftime.
Charlie Whitehurst was 17 for 26 for 160 yards with two touchdowns and one interception for the Titans.
