    Both college careers ended up historic in their own right as they became first-round draft picks from 2019-20. As the 2020 NFL season approaches, Haskins and Burrow are slated to face each other on opposite teams for the first time Nov. 11 at FedEx Field in Landover, Maryland, when Haskins' Washington Redskins host Burrow's Cincinnati Bengals. Six months before the Week 11 matchup, a 1 p.m. ET kickoff on CBS, Haskins was asked about Burrow's transfer from the Buckeyes to the Tigers and the success that came with it.

    "I always thought Joe was going to have a good career at LSU," Haskins said on the Redskins Talk podcast Monday with NBC Sports Washington's JP Finlay. "I wished him the best of luck at Ohio State. And even his first year when he got there, he still played well."

    Adrian Peterson 'expecting big things' from Dwayne Haskins

    Back in February, the Washington Redskins picked up the second-year club option on Adrian Peterson’s contract.

    "Adrian Peterson is the epitome of what it means to be a pro in this league," new coach Ron Rivera said in a release. "Adrian's leadership and passion towards the game of football will set an example of what is expected of the players in this program moving forward."

    Peterson is exactly the kind of player Rivera wants on his roster surrounding second-year quarterback Dwayne Haskins. In a recent interview with local media on a Zoom call via NBC Sports Washington, Peterson talked about his expectations for Haskins and the team this season.

    "With Haskins coming back, too, I'm really excited about him and how he ended the season last year," Peterson said. "It was just tremendous to see him just unfold and let his game go to a high level. It clicked.

    "I want to see him blossom. I'm expecting big things from him."

    Last season, Haskins dealt with a messy Redskins team in his rookie campaign, one that saw it’s head coach Jay Gruden fired after an 0-5 start and one in which Haskins didn’t get the chance to start until Week 9.

    Before Week 9, Haskins appeared in just two games in relief of then-starter Case Keenum. He looked lost at times in those appearances, completing 12 of 22 passes for zero touchdowns and four interceptions.

    After Week 9 when Haskins was named the starter, he slowly improved throughout the rest of the season. In seven games as a starter, Haskins was 2-5 completing 59 percent of his passes with seven touchdowns and three interceptions

    Coming into this season, Rivera has made it clear that although Haskins enters training camp as the starter, he will have to deal with some competition. This offseason, Rivera signed quarterback Kyle Allen, who started for Rivera last season in Carolina after Cam Newton suffered a season-ending injury.

    Peterson believes learning the new playbook this offseason will be a crucial step to Haskins’ success this year.

    "I know he's been in his book and he's working hard to be that leader we need him to be," Peterson said. "I think last year was an eye-opener for him, just from the transition he went through from training camp to the end of the season...You can see that by how he's working out and how he's approaching things."

    Just sayin': With Haskins, McLaurin, Baugh, and Young the 2020 Redskins will have a pretty good "Buckeye representation".

    Watch: Dwayne Haskins throws passes to Antonio Brown in the dark

    The year 2020 has been tough for athletes. The coronavirus pandemic shut down sports around the globe and only recently have teams begun to return to any sort of normalcy.

    During the pandemic, athletes have had to get creative with their workouts. One who has found a way to stay in shape is former Ohio State quarterback Dwayne Haskins. Currently of the Washington Redskins, Haskins has been seen throwing to a number of wide receivers, but the most recent is the most interesting targets for the quarterback was former NFL wideout, Antonio Brown.

    Over the weekend, Brown posted a video to his Instagram story of Haskins throwing to him on a football field... in the dark.

    "Even with AB, Diggs, Chad, a whole bunch of other NFL players, DeVante Parker, I work out with a lot of receivers, they like to run routes with me," Haskins said recently. "The biggest thing with those guys is just, trying to be around the best, learning from the best, find ways to get better."

    This is not the first time Haskins and Brown have been seen together and it likely won't be the last. But working out on a field using only car headlights is a new one.

    Dwayne Haskins' time at Ohio State was just two years ago but he was so unfathomably good it's already starting to feel like some damn mythology.

    I mean, what is my brain even supposed to do with this?

    I'm going to have to explain that season to my kids one day, and – in the best way possible – I'm not sure I'm ever going to be able to do it thoroughly.

    calibuck Too soon old, too late smart

    Not sure there's a way to explain a lightening strike properly. Certainly for an tOSU QB, this performance was a first time thing. Heck, four of those games in total would have been an entire year of passing yards under Woody. The funny thing (at least to my eyes), is that you take those games, and look at the rushing yards and it shows a fairly balanced, if not diverse, offense. I was a Burrow fan, but Dwayne made a believer of me. Go Bucks!

    Dwayne Haskins is QB1.

    Washington will go with Haskins as its starter on week one as the second-year former Buckeye signal-caller beat out veteran Alex Smith to earn the starting quarterback role, the team announced on Wednesday afternoon.

    The team's first-round pick in the 2019 NFL Draft, Haskins took over Washington's starting quarterback role midway through the 2019 season, but struggled early on, throwing for just 800 yards through his first six games with just two touchdowns to his six interceptions, including three in his regular-season debut.

    Haskins did bounce back later in the season, throwing for 564 yards and five touchdowns with just one interception in his final three games, but an ankle injury ended his season two games early.

    The veteran Smith, cleared to return to football this offseason after a 2018 leg injury that nearly cost him his life, battled with Haskins in camp for the starting role, but ultimately Washington elected to go with Haskins in his second season.

    Haskins will be one of what looks to be three Buckeyes in Washington's starting lineup, joining former teammates Terry McLaurin and Chase Young, the 2020 No. 2 overall pick. Marcus Baugh is also on Washington's roster as he attempts to make the team as a free agent after playing most recently in the now-disbanded AAF with the San Diego Fleet.
