Dustin Hopkins, the kicker of Washington, performed so well and set the 43-yarder on the game’s final play by giving his team a heart-stopping victory which was much needed at that time and he just nailed it.

Ron Rivera and his staff were stress-free about losing. Heinicke, who had completed 34 of 46 passes for 336 yards, two touchdowns, and one interception in the second-ever regular season, was considered as a backup for them.
On the other hand, Daniel Jones, who suffered his first career loss to Washington, and that was not his fault at all. He performed so well and completed 22 of 32 passes for 249 yards and a touchdown. Moreover with 95 yards and a score he led the Giants in rushing.
There were seen so many ups and downs in Heinicke’s performance. His chance of being a hero and zero was switching that time. But at the end of the day, he defined and proved himself as a hero. He led his team 50 yards down the field on 11 plays which turned the game into their side. It can be said that his performance, leading skill for the match, risk-taking tendency took them forward in winning.
If we have to say about Giants then we can say it is not like that they played so bad and were defeated. No, even those guys also performed so well and lost by few mistakes and bad luck also. We saw Slayton’swideout streaking alone with that unforgettable courage. In the fourth quarter, the remaining 6 minutes was seen as a one-man army. But his team needs to perform well also. However, his passing was also so perfect. In spite of performing well, he couldn’t make his team a winner which is so bad luck for Giants.
