He promised Penn he'd make up for the drop and did so the next time the ball went his way, a big gain that helped Washington beat Miami for its first victory of the season. By that point, the third-round pick out of Ohio State already had two touchdown catches and proved to be a matchup nightmare to opposing defenses.
