The moment we've all been waiting for - we finally know who will be starting for the Washington Commanders going forward. Head coach Ron Rivera announced on Wednesday that quarterback Taylor Heinicke will start for the team in Week 11 against the Houston Texans.
Carson Wentz is still on injured reserve with a finger injury, but he is eligible to resume throwing. It's unclear whether Heinicke will remain the starter for the remainder of the season, or if it's just next week.
In my personal opinion, I think Heinicke has more than earned it. The offense plays better with him, and his record (3-1 as a starter) shows it. He'll get a gimme game against the Texans, but beating the undefeated Philadelphia Eagles was a huge momentum shift for the Commanders.
