While starting quarterback Jason Campbell struggled again for the Washington Redskins in their 17-13 preseason victory against the Pittsburgh Steelers on Saturday night, rookie free agent Chase Daniel looked good in his first NFL action.
Daniel then scrambled for 22 yards on third-and-11 to keep his second series going, putting the Redskins on the Pittsburgh 39 as the fourth quarter began.
Daniel was sacked for a 12-yard loss by former Missouri teammate Ziggy Hood two plays later and was run out of bounds by Hood again on the next play. The Redskins had to punt, but Fred Davis forced returner Joe Burnett to fumble. On the next play, Daniel hit Davis over the middle for an 18-yard touchdown that gave Washington a 17-13 lead.
Daniel finished 6-for-8 for 58 yards and the two scores. Campbell completed just one of seven passes for 10 yards against the Steelers' starting defense.
