Commanders run game lets Heinicke be himself and win games

When the subject of Taylor Heinicke 's quarterback play came up after the latest Washington Commanders win, coach Ron Rivera summed it up pretty succinctly.

"Taylor," Rivera said with a chuckle. "I mean, it's what we're expecting: make some plays, do a couple things that, you know - ugh. But then come around and make that play that's going to ignite things."

Heinicke was his normal self in making some great passes and throwing an inexplicable interception in a 19-13 victory against Atlanta on Sunday. It's a winning recipe for Washington because of the one-two running back punch of Brian Robinson Jr. and Antonio Gibson that keeps defenses off balance on the ground and has the team 7-5 and sitting in playoff position with five games to go.
