The Washington Football Team got off to another slow start against the New York Giants on Thursday Night Football. New York took the ball right down the field on its opening drive and took a 7-0 lead.
After two straight three-and-outs, the Giants were threatening again, but a sack on third down pushed them out of field-goal range. Washington would get the ball back deep in its own territory.
Then, quarterback Taylor Heinicke and wide receiver Terry McLaurin went to work.
Heinicke led Washington on an 11-play, 90-yard drive that culminated with an 11-yard touchdown pass to McLaurin.
