WFT Beats Raiders: Deja Vu In The Desert Recap
WFT Beats Raiders: Deja Vu In The Desert Recap Washington Football Team's 17-15 win over the Las Vegas Raiders in Las Vegas on Sunday stretched the team's win streak to four games. It was a game dominated by defense, and once again, the WFT defense showed up to play. A defense that hasn't allowed an opposing offense to clip the 300 total yard mark in four games, and gave up just 304 the game prior to that, allowed the Raiders just 310 on Sunday, 18 of those coming in desperation time at the end of the game. But it wasn't just the defense that willed this team to a win, as quarterback Taylor Heinicke overcame a stout pass rush by the Raiders and a fourth-quarter interception that gave the Raiders the lead. Heinicke completed 23 passes on 30 attempts for 196 yards, two touchdowns, and a late interception that put his team down by one. He was inaccurate and hurried at times but ultimately kept plays alive with his footwork and made throws when it mattered most. After giving up the lead, Heinicke orchestrated an eight-play, 44-yard drive to set up new kicker Brian Johnson for the game-winning 48-yard field goal to regain the lead. Without J.D. McKissic, Washington would rely on Antonio Gibson to carry the load, which he did, to the tune of 88 yards on 23 carries. It was deja vu for the Washington Football Team, as back in Week 22 against the New York Giants, Heinicke threw what looked like the game-losing interception in the fourth quarter, but was given another chance. He led the offense on an 11-play, 50-yard drive to set up the game-winning field goal. Sound familiar? Risk-taking quarterbacks like Heinicke have to operate on a short memory. And he appears to have mastered that ability. Washington's defense is playing well, Heinicke is playing well, and on a four-game winning streak, WFT doesn't seem like a team anyone wants to play right now, as it holds the sixth seed in the NFC playoff picture. Washington currently has its sights set on the NFC East division leader Dallas Cowboys and will meet Dallas in two of the next three games. PLEASE: ? Like the video ?
