Redskins vs Jaguars Live,The Washington Redskins (6-7), led by running back Adrian Peterson, meet the Jacksonville Jaguars (4-9), led by running back Leonard Fournette, in a Week 15 NFL football game on Sunday, December 16, 2018 (12/16/18) at TIAA Bank Field in Jacksonville, Florida.

Where: TIAA Bank Field
Time: 1 p.m. Eastern
Washington (6–7) heads into the weekend on a four-game losing streak after getting demolished by the Giants, 40–16. The Redskins started Mark Sanchez under center after a string of injuries at the quarterback position, but benched him in favor of Josh Johnson–who hadn’t thrown a regular season pass since 2011–in the third quarter. Johnson led a pair of scoring drives en route to a 14-point fourth quarter for Washington.
The Jaguars fell to the Titans, 30–9, last week. QB Cody Kessler went 25-of-43 for 240 yards and one touchdown but it wasn’t enough to overcome Derrick Henry’s heroics for Tennessee.
Sunday’s matchup between the Jacksonville Jaguars and Washington Redskins will be Josh Johnson’s first NFL start in seven years. After losing both Alex Smith and Colt McCoy to leg injuries, and poor play from Mark Sanchez, the Redskins will turn to the well-traveled QB on Sunday when they travel to Jacksonville. Even with the multitude of injuries, Washington sits just a half-game back of the final playoff spot in the NFC. Jacksonville already is eliminated from playoff contention, but can play spoiler come Sunday.
