Washington Football Team Dropped By A Hungrier Dallas Squad

While the Washington Football Team rallied late to make a game of it, they were beaten fairly soundly by the Dallas Cowboys for most of their 27-20 loss on Sunday. Dallas rode a strong 18-point first quarter lead for most of the game. The win moved Dallas into a commanding lead in the NFC East at 9-4, while the WFT fell to 6-7 and in a tie with the Philadelphia Eagles.

Despite an absolute donut in the first half, and being down 24-0, Washington still had a chance to win the game at the end. The Football Team posted 12 fourth quarter points to get the score back to 27-20, and within a score. They even had a drive to potentially tie the game at 27-27 with just over three minutes to go.

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.

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.

Taylor Heinicke’s Brain Fart Proves Costly

It’s doubtful that as a little boy growing up in Green Bay, Taylor Heinicke envisioned his NFL touchdown at Lambeau Field to look like what happened Sunday. After all, it didn’t end up being a touchdown at all. And ultimately, Heinicke’s antics cost his team very valuable points.

Heinicke thought he had scored a touchdown against Green Bay. Facing a third-and-goal on the Packers’ 3-yard line, Heinicke scrambled to his right and found himself with a wide-open path to the end zone. Acres of space to walk right in.

He inexplicably dove and then rolled into the end zone. Apparently for dramatic effect. He even did the Lambeau Leap after spotting a Washington fan in the crowd after he had “scored”.

Washington Waste Opportunities And Fall 33-22 At Fed Ex

The Washington Football Team didn’t put a very good foot forward at Fed Ex Field on Sunday. In a game where they certainly had some opportunities,  they were ultimately spanked by the New Orleans Saints 33-22.

Early on it looked like Washington’s defense might finally catch fire, when Colt Holcomb intercepted Jameis Winston on the Saints very first drive. The WFT couldn’t capitalize fully on the turnover but did manage a Dustin Hopkins field goal to take an early 3-0 lead.
