Washington is coming off a huge upset over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in Week 10, beating the defending champs 29-19. It was definitely QB Taylor Heinicke’s biggest win of his career, throwing for 256 yards and 1 TD. RB Antonio Gibson had 64 rushing yards and 2 TDs in the victory. At 3-6, WFT isn’t too far off of the playoff picture, which sounds crazy. The Football Team is only 2.0 games back of the New Orleans Saints.
The Panthers are another team in the thick of the NFC Wild Card chase. They got some reinforcements in the form of former QB Cam Newton, who was signed to a one-year deal last week and played in the win against the Arizona Cardinals. The 34-10 win came against a depleted Cardinals squad, but got the Panthers to 5-4 and just outside the Wild Card. Newton looked good, accounting for 2 TDs in the win. He should get the start for Carolina this week.
