Heinicke Outduels Newton In Important Washington Win

The Washington Football Team just won it’s second tough football game in a row. This week’s victory came on the road against a Carolina Panthers team that was up for the battle, as they welcomed Cam Newton back to their franchise. Fortunately for Washington, Taylor Heinicke was better on the day and secured a tough 27-21 victory at Bank Of America Stadium.

Heinicke threw three touchdown passes against the league’s toughest pass defense, to lead the way for Washington. He completed 16 of 22 passes for 206 yards, and ran for another 29 yards on six carries. The 28-year old made some spectacular plays. Not the least of which, was a fourth down scramble where he threw up a prayer that got answered, and kept a WFT drive alive.

Week 11: Washington Vs Carolina – How To Watch And Listen

Two teams coming off big wins, will square off against each other in Charlotte on Sunday. The Washington Football Team are fresh off beating the defending Super Bowl Champs last weekend. Meanwhile, the Carolina Panthers beat the Arizona Cardinals who had the best record in football.

Carolina will be trying newly supplanted quarterback Cam Newton at starter. He returned to Carolina last week, and scored twice on his first two touches.

Can he learn the offense quickly enough to be an effective starter this week?

The WFT will again go with Taylor Heinicke, who had his best game in over a month against Tampa Bay.

Washington would also be wise to keep an eye on the hot hand of Christian McCaffrey – who had over 160 yards rushing and receiving against the Cardinals.
