Heinicke got the start as a result of Wentz having surgery to repair an injured finger on his throwing hand. With that said, Heinicke made the most of it and orchestrated a miraculous play to seal the win for Washington.
The Washington Commanders offense looked fresh and rejuvenated as a result of Taylor Heinicke replacing Carson Wentz as starting quarterback. For the first time this season it was slightly less painful to watch the Commanders offense operate, thanks to Heinicke.
How Could You Go Back To Wentz?
At this point, Carson Wentz has done nothing to make a case to return as starting QBs for the Commanders when he’s healthy. It seems like it should be the Taylor Heinicke show for the remainder of the season.
With that said, is there another team out there that would want to give Wentz a shot as a starter? I don’t think so, which is why when Terry Mclaurin came back to catch that crucial pass near the end of the game against Green Bag, I immediately had the thought: “Carson Wentz is done as a starter in the NFL.”
That throw and catch ultimately helped seal the deal for the win, and officially put Wentz on track to be a backup moving forward.
