Kia MVP Of The Game: Trey Quinn


In just the third game of his NFL career, rookie wide receiver Trey Quinn continued to show signs of growth in the Redskins offense. Contributing in multiple phases of the game, Quinn is this week's Kia MVP of the Game.

On Thanksgiving, Quinn was a key cog in both the Redskins punt returning and passing offense. In the third quarter, he returned a punt 30 yards into Dallas territory. Later that offensive drive, Quinn caught a 10-yard pass from quarterback Colt McCoy in the end zone to give Washington a 13-10 lead.

The touchdown was the first of Quinn's NFL career, and to celebrate he broke out "The Scarn" dance from the hit television show "The Office".

Recording his first touchdown reception and getting a shoutout from Steve Carrell on Twitter made Thursday a special night for the Mr. Irrelevant draft pick. Quinn finished the game with five receptions, which was second of the team, and 26 yards receiving. In just two games since returning from injury, Quinn has compiled nine receptions and demonstrated he can be a reliable target for whoever is under center.

"When the ball is coming my way, I want to do something with it," Quinn said.
