Rookie Patterson scores TD, Washington beats Bengals 17-13

LANDOVER, Md. (AP) — 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.
