Washington scored two touchdowns in the fourth quarter. The last time Washington scored two touchdowns in the fourth quarter was Sep. 20, 2020 at Arizona.

Heinicke's mojo was behind both. Pressure about to get to him, McLaurin tied up, but a floating player was thrown, Mclaurin broke free, and made the catch.
Then scramble drill about to start, everything sniffed out, then an across-the-field checkdown when everyone was suckered to the left.

Me either. It is even more ridiculous given the video game numbers that the other QBs in this league, even the "non elite" ones, are putting up.

Lol Kinda hard to imagine that one..well.... maybe not:) Highest Qb rating for a QB in 4 yrs is a head scratcher to.
It was real nice to see Samuel back out there making an impact, looking forward to see him progress as we move on

Heinicke could have folded mentally when Thomas went down but did not. A lot of QBs fall into using a certain receiver as a crutch and crumbles if a number 1 or 1A target goes down. Jason Campbell would have crumpled if Cooley went down.

I would consider Derek Carr as an example. He manages to consistently flirt with 4000 yards but he just doesn't pass the eye test in being a dynamic quarterback of any style, be the Brady method or the Favre/Mahomes method.

Heinicke is averaging 8-9 different targets every game. I don’t know when the last time we had a guy that spread the ball around like he is doing since Mark Brunell. I don’t see him having a favorite target other than maybe McLaurin.

Can you blame him? ;) I think he'd be A LOT of QBs fave targets. The man is just money! Honestly he ranks right up there amongst some of the best receivers this teams ever had. Just needs to stay consistent and healthy to cement it...
