Washington reached the postseason in 2020 but Ron Rivera’s team fell at home to the Los Angeles Chargers 20-16. The Football Team managed just one touchdown and also saw starting quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick leave the game with a hip injury that could sideline him for several weeks.
Signed in the offseason, Fitzpatrick was 3 of 6 for 13 yards. Backup Taylor Heinicke finished 11 of 15 for 122 yards and a scoring pass. He will get the start vs the Giants.
Antonio Gibson had a nice opening game but failed to get into the end zone. He finished with 90 yards on the ground and three catches for 18 yards. The lone touchdown for Washington was an 11-yard strike from Heinicke to tight end Logan Thomas.
