The Leaders, at 7-7-1, are barely clinging to last place in NFC court. With two more games to play, they might just change quarterbacks.
As explained on Sunday Football Night in AmericaThe Washington coach’s staff will meet on Monday for a performance review Taylor Hynek And the Carson Wentz in Saturday’s loss to the 49ers. Coaches will consider the pros and cons of both players, with an eye toward making the best decision moving forward.
Look for a decision to be made on Tuesday afternoon, Wednesday morning at the latest. And although there is no indication of how the match will play out, there is a feeling that the coaching staff liked what they saw from Wentz, in his first match since October 13 in Chicago.
Heinicke has also given them a lot to love in recent weeks, too. Perhaps the best approach is to be ready to go and use both.
Heinicke completed 13 of 18 passes for 166 yards, two touchdowns, and an interception on Saturday. Wentz connected on 12 of 16 throws, for 123 yards and 1 touchdown. Heinicke also had one fumble, which the 49ers recovered.
The Captains finished the season with home games against the Browns and Cowboys. Washington has gone 0-2-1 in the last three games, having won six out of seven.
Win over both, and the leaders will. You only lose one team, and there’s a good chance that one of the different 7-8 teams (Packers, Lions, Seahawks) will slide in front of the leaders, with a 9-8 win over an 8-8-1.
It may come down to whether the Cowboys rest their starter in Week 18. If the Eagles beat the Saints on Sunday and clinch the division title, the Cowboys will be locked into the No. 5 seed. There will be nothing to gain or lose at the end of the regular season.
The only thing you’ll gain is this – a loss for the Leaders (assuming they beat the Browns on Sunday) will ensure that Aaron Rodgers You won’t get a seat at the post-season table, and that hot (but not as hot as before Saturday) Lions are also turned away.
