Washington makes heads-up play on short kickoff, turns into Taylor Heinicke touchdown

1 min read


The Washington Football Team pulled off an odd kickoff recovery in the second quarter against the Buffalo Bills on Sunday.

Kicker Dustin Hopkins kicked the ball short and it bounced in front of the would-be Bills returner, but instead of bouncing toward Buffalo, it bounced backward. Hopkins raced down with his team and was able to recover his own kick.

The incredible heads-up play gave Washington great field position and put the team in a position to cut their deficit.

On the following drive, Taylor Heinicke would only need five plays to get back into the end zone. Heinicke ran in it by himself to score and cut the Bills’ lead to seven points, 21-14.

The Bills have been on the ball all game long, scoring 21 straight points. Josh Allen had three touchdown passes – to Emmanuel Sanders, Zack Moss and Dawson Knox – before the second quarter’s 2-minute warning.
