Commanders Earn Taylor-Made Win Over Packers

Taylor Heinicke might not have the most NFL-est arm in the league, but Taylor Heinicke certainly has one of the most NFL-est attitudes in the game. With Carson Wentz out for a minimum of four games, Washington’s backup quarterback took to the field on Sunday to try and win a football game. And did.

In true Washington form, fans were split down the middle as to wether or not they should throw any praise in Heinicke’s direction. The bottom line is that the Washington Commanders beat a Green Bay Packers team that almost nobody expected them to beat. Especially with a backup quarterback at the helm.

Antonio Gibson To Covid List With WFT’s Season in The Balance

The Washington Football Team face the Philadelphia Eagles at Fed Ex Field on Sunday, in a must-win game. On Friday, Washington potentially lost one of the most important cogs in their offensive wheel. They had to place running back Antonio Gibson on the reserve / Covid-19 list.

To make matters worse, they had to add offensive lineman Ereck Flowers to the Covid list as well. That’s a significant hit to a running game that was likely going to see a lot of work unless Washington fell behind early.

Both Gibson and Flowers are vaccinated, and could possibly “test out” of isolation before the game.

Third Straight Win Puts Washington Back In Playoff Mix

The Washington Football Team are back in the playoff hunt after their third consecutive victory. Washington beat the Seattle Seahawks 17-15 in this week’s Monday Night Football game. In doing so, they moved to 5-6, and into the seventh and final NFC Wild Card Playoff position.

It took a late intercepted two-point conversion from Kendall Fuller and an overturned onside kick to finally get the win. But Washington did it mostly by keeping Russell Wilson off the field.

Wallpaper Wednesday: Antonio Gibson Mobile Version

Antonio Gibson ran for 64 yards in the win over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Sunday. On 24 carries. That’s tough sledding. His two touchdowns were an integral part of Washington’s victory.

The second year receiver-turned-running-back had a solid game. Statistics don’t tell you everything. His first touchdown run was indicative of his effort levels. He made a couple of great blocks in passing situations as well. Something he is only just learning, being new to the position.

Impressive Upset Win Keeps Season Hopes Alive For WFT

Washington played their most complete game of football this season. They deserved every drop of the win, and outplayed the defending Super Bowl Champion Buccaneers for most of the game.

Washington Football Team Position Breakdowns: Running Backs

It is doubtful that any other position on the roster, will see as little turnover as the running back position. In all likelihood, Washington will open the 2021 season, exactly as they finished the 2020 season.

Washington finished 2020 with a backfield of Antonio Gibson, Peyton Barber, and J.D. McKissic. The three of them finished the season with 1368 yards rushing (795 + 258 + 365) collectively – not exactly breath-taking. Is that cause for optimism or fret in 2021?
