The day couldn’t have gone much better for former Penn State WR Jahan Dotson.
In his NFL debut for the Washington Commanders, Dotson caught five passes for 40 yards and two touchdowns, including the game winner, in Washington’s 28-22 win over the Jacksonville Jaguars at home.
Dotson caught his first touchdown pass.
Dotson caught his first NFL touchdown on a 7-yard pass from Carson Wentz that gave Washington a two-score lead in the second quarter.
Dotson’s second and most dramatic touchdown came with 1:46 left from 24 yards out. This gave the Commanders a 28-22 lead that they held for the rest of the game.
Dotson was Washington’s first round pick (No. 16 overall) in this spring’s draft after one of the best careers of any receiver in Penn State history.
He left Penn State second in school history in receptions and fourth in yards, becoming an All-American in 2021.
