Last night, former Ohio State quarterback Dwayne Haskins threw his first touchdown pass as a member of the Washington Redskins.

While that's great news for Haskins, the Redskins have a major question at quarterback. In potentially his last season as the team's head coach, Jay Gruden has a decision to make.

Does he roll with the NFL veteran, Case Keenum, who started for the Denver Broncos and Minnesota Vikings? Or does he give the ball to the rookie?

After Haskins' performance on Thursday night, Gruden might not have a chance.

He completed 7-of-14 passing for 114 yards and a beautiful touchdown pass to Robert Davis. After having a few hours to reflect on the game, Haskins took to Twitter to gloat about the pass.

"Sheeshhhh, lol I can throw the deep ball all day," Haskins said.

Ohio State fans know that.

Haskins loved launching the ball down the field for the Buckeyes and racked up 50 touchdown passes on the season. He has a ways to go before reaching that mark in the NFL, but he's on his way.

Now we'll have to wait to find out if he's the starting quarterback for the Redskins when the season opens in early September.
