Washington’s Taylor Heinicke trying to find right formula for NFC East title


#Taylor #Heinicke had his sights on several courses at #Old #Dominion #University in the fall and on #Sunday he will try to find the right formula and equation to help the #Washington #Football #Team earn a division title.

#Heinicke was more focused on his online courses – #Mathematics in #Nature, #Number Theory and #Discrete #Mathematics, #Applied #Numerical #Methods and #Partial #Differential #Equations – when he got the call in #December to serve as #Washington’s “quarantine quarterback” just in case anything went wrong.

Then, #Washington’s nightmare began: #Alex #Smith got hurt, #Dwayne #Haskins’ immaturity off the field was more sustained than his play on the field, leaving the team with almost nobody. #And after three weeks of being on the practice squad, #Heinicke can drop the calculator and pick up the football as a starter.

“I was prepared for this moment, and it’s fortunate that it happened,” #Heinicke said #Thursday. “#It’s been a bizarre month or two, but I wouldn’t ask for anything different.”

#Heinicke, who was in the XFL earlier this year before the coronavirus pandemic shut the league down, picked up an ‘A’ and a ‘B’ in two of his final exams but needed to put two more on hold because of his new position with #Washington.

3 NFC EAST TEAMS IN HUNT FOR DIVISION TITLE WITH 1 GAME REMAINING

#It’s not going to be an easy task for #Heinicke. #He will have to lead #Washington to a victory over the division rival, #Philadelphia #Eagles. A win will give #Washington a playoff spot and their first NFC #East title since 2015.

“The nice thing about it is [that] #Taylor’s been in the system before,” #Washington coach #Ron #Rivera said. “#Taylor knew what to do. #We just feel that giving him an opportunity to do a little more things will help him if he gets the opportunity to be the guy on #Sunday.”

The 27-year-old has mostly been a backup during his NFL career. #In eight career games, he’s thrown for 467 yards and two touchdowns. #Last week subbing in for #Haskins, he was 12-for-19 with 137 passing yards and had a touchdown pass. #He played under #Rivera in 2018 with the #Carolina #Panthers.
