Taylor Heinicke duel with GOAT Tom Brady tonight. In his second NFL start, he threw more than 300 yards, rushed to the magical TD, and gave hope to a 10-point home disadvantaged team entering the playoffs. Heinnick experienced AC joint separation and wiped some dirt in the locker room, so he didn’t have to miss any game.
The future of the Washington football team is bright, and there are still many questions next season, but for now, Taylor Heinicke is our QB!
