It was the fourth quarter and fourth and 21st quarters, and after evading the Tampa Bay onslaught, Washington quarterback Taylor Heinicke threw a pass into double cover.
This was a prayer That could keep the miracle alive. A ray of hope that, if backed up by teammate Logan Thomas, could prolong one of the most unlikely NFL playoff duels – Tom Brady and his six Super Bowl rings against Taylor Heinicke and his career start before Saturday.
This is that Stuff they make Disney movies out of – a fellow from Old Dominion, a 27-year-old with 126 snaps in his NFL name, a guy who jumped through five franchises only to go without them three times and three more times to cut while almost never playing. He even spent a few weeks on the New England Patriots training team, allegedly a teammate of Brady.
Brady was aiming for his 31st playoff win, a record of course. Heinicke was looking for his first win as an NFL starter.
Within the two-minute warning, the scoreboard read: Tampa Bay 31, Washington 23. A game with a score. Washington had the ball. Anything was possible.
Heinicke was not on an NFL squad in 2019. In spring 2020 he joined the St. Louis Battle Hawks of the XFL, only he couldn’t even win the starting job. When the league collapsed and the NFL’s interest failed, he thought it might be time to get on with life.
He re-enrolled at Old Dominion to complete his engineering degree. The 2020 NFL season went on without him. In early December, in the middle of the final, Washington called and offered him a job for the rest of the season. It wasn’t glamorous. Washington basically wanted him to be a « quarantine quarterback » just in case everyone else got COVID-19 and couldn’t play.
« I had to email them and tell them the whole situation and ask them if I could take them after the season, « said Heinicke.
Things were moving forward quickly. Due to injuries (Alex Smith) and immaturity (Dwayne Haskins), Heinicke was in Washington’s week 16 game. He went 12 against 19 and threw a touchdown, only the second of his career. Smith returned to the season finale but was kicked out of Saturday’s wildcard game with calf pain.
Brady was Brady, 381 yards and two touchdowns over. Tampa wasn’t great, but it carried out an even attack that should be enough to comfortably win against a no-name QB. Except apparently, Heinicke didn’t get the memo. In fact, he said he made it his goal not to even think about how Tom Brady was on the other sideline.
« I just wanted to go out and complete the ball, » said Heinicke. « Just complete the ball and get the first downs. »
He did. He made passports on the run. Then he ran when they thought he would fit. He wiped away mistakes. He threw for 306 yards and a touchdown. He rushed for another 46 yards and one more score – completed by a brilliant dive for the pylon, which made it a two-point game at the time.
However, the dive was painful and caused the AC joints to separate in his shoulder. A couple of hard hits on the next series sent Heinicke into the locker room, but he stormed back onto the field and never missed a snap.
Everywhere in the NFL the questions were the same. How was this guy out of the league? And where’s the guy who started about him in the XFL? (He’s also out of the league.) « He’s played a lot of games, » said Tampa’s manager Bruce Arians. « He had a lot of balance. »
Now he needed another one. On the third descent with the ball at the Tampa 49-yard line, he tried too busy and was fired. Now it was desperation as a pack of Bucs came towards him. He spun around, backed away, and finally picked it up.
Heinicke tried to write this Disney movie. And Disney movies are fun. Reality is a different animal. The pass was high and floating. The Tampa Defense put it down.
The dream was over. Tom Brady would win again. Then they shared a moment of mutual congratulations.
« We got everything on the line, » said Heinicke. “But I just came up short.
Heinicke’s moment in the spotlight is not necessarily over. He may never compete in a playoff game against Tom Brady again, but you play like that and no longer sign up for any further engineering courses. Either Washington will keep him or someone will get him.
« A guy like him who works hard for what he does has created an opportunity, » said Rivera.
« I was in that real world, « remarked Heinicke. « It’s not fun. Not as funny as that. »
« Hopefully these professors will write me an email and say: » You passed, you are good, « said Heinicke as a joke.
» I’m pretty sure that won’t happen, « he continued. » I’ll be taking them in a couple of weeks. And hopefully pass it on. “

He had x-rays after the game but said it was « nothing serious, » though he added, « it definitely hurts. » Young doesn’t seem too b Worrying that he hasn’t made a 3-pointer in his last two games is going to be too high or too low, ”said Young. “When the shots aren’t fired, I understand the work I’ve done and I know it’s going to pay off.” WASHINGTON BLOCKING SHOTThe 6-foot-7 Washington asked the game for the 5 position for the Hornets when they go to a small ball lineup and he responded well. He had six blocks against the Hawks when the Hornets came back to 500 that season. « I love blocking shots because it gets us out of the transition, » said Washington.

That made it 28-16, which was enough to withstand Heinicke’s attempt to be the unlikely hero. « We are thrilled with the win, » said Buccaneers recipient Cameron Brate. « I hate to say that we are relieved, but at that point we just pumped up and got the win. No matter how ugly it was, no matter how many mistakes we made, a win is a win this time of the year. » HEINICKE WHO? With Smith over a strained right-wing calf, Heinicke made a name for himself in prime time, setting the single-game franchise record for quarterbacks and asking if he should be considered Washington’s QB of the future: « It was brave » Coach Ron Rivera said, « It’s one of those things that a guy like him works hard on what he does.

Arians said Evans was 85-90% healthy. INJURIES Bukkans: RG Alex Cappa left the team at the end of the second Qu artals with an ankle injury and did not return.

Brady was the key to New England, winning six Super Bowls for a total of 9. Now he has the Buccaneers (12-5) for their first playoff win since their run to the NFL title in 2002. After a quarter of a century the Bills got one of those triumphs that Brady amassed – and they even figured out how to stop a Hail Mary. Buffalo (14-3) scored 0 on Saturday against Indianapolis (11-6) : 6 post-season skid with a 27:24 win … The previous play off win was on December 30, 1995 against Miami. And it was the Bills’ first home game in 24 years, with a limited number of 6,700 fans for the first time this season. Los Angeles (11-) 6) rattled Russell Wilson and dominated, despite the lack of a unanimous all-pro defensive bout against Aaron Donald for much of the second half of a 30-20 Seattle win. A Pick-6 from Darious Williams made a major contribution, as did five sacks, two from Donald. Buccaneers 31, Washington 23Brady threw 381 yards and two touchdowns in his 42nd post-season start, and firstly, not in a New England uniform. He made good use of all of his guns, from recipients Mike Evans, Antonio Brown, and Chris Godwin to Cameron Brate and Leonard Fournette. But the Tampa Bay defense leaked and Washington’s unannounced Taylor Heinicke on his second pro start in place of injured starter Alex Smith ran 46 yards and a touchdown, throwing 306 yards and a score. In the end, however, it was another W for Brady: « He’s a fighter, he plays hard, works hard and studies hard. » Fournette said of Brady: « And he’s the man for the job. » Well – for two decades. Bills 27, Colts 24Josh Allen threw two touchdown passes, scored another rush and Micah Hyde fought Philip Rivers’ desperate pass to finish the game. Buffalo will host an AFC division round match. « It doesn’t matter what it looks like, » said Allen. « It’s the playoffs. It wins or goes home and we did it. We have to focus on the one we have next week. » Buffalo’s last loss before winning the next six games and the AFC East crown was Hyde one of three defenders who failed to knock the ball down. DeAndre Hopkins ’43 yard jump on Kyler Murray’s desperate throw – the « Hail Murray » – won that game for Arizona. The bills have learned from this, and Philip River’s stake for TY Hilton was incomplete. « It’s been a long time since Bill’s Mafia could party like this, » Allen said. « But it’s a game. » Rams 30, Seahawks 20 « Lots of people rose and answered the bell in great ways » said Rams coach Sean McVay, « Darious Williams showed up, I thought that would be a huge momentum shift for us. “Cam Akers rushed for 131 yards and a touchdown. and Jared Goff, though shaky for parts of the game, replaced injured starting quarterback John Wolford early and avoided major mistakes. Less than two weeks after right thumb surgery, Goff was able to complete the win with a 15-yard touchdown pass to Robert Woods: « I think it was really just a sting. It definitely seemed good, » McVay said about Wolford. SUNDAYBrowns (11-5) at Steelers (12-4) For their return to the playoffs after a 2003 drought, the Browns will miss coach Kevin Stefanski and the standout security guard Joel Bitonio because of C OVID-19 problems, and otherwise they are not that healthy at all. You haven’t exercised much this week. Perhaps their familiarity with their arch-rivals, who won AFC North but lost four of their last five after 11-0, will help. Cleveland setzte sich im Saisonfinale ebenfalls gegen Pittsburgh durch, aber die Steelers ruhten viele Stammgäste aus, darunter QB Ben Roethlisberger und All-Pro Edge Rusher T.J. Watt.Key zu diesem Matchup könnten die Bodenspiele sein. Cleveland ist stark mit Nick Chubb und Kareem Hunt, während Pittsburgh Probleme hat. Chicago (8-8) in New Orleans (12-4) Obwohl die Heiligen Überstunden brauchten, um die Bären im November zu schlagen, sind sie hier solide Favoriten, nachdem sie ihre vierte Gerade gewonnen haben NFC Süd Krone. Drew Brees befindet sich wahrscheinlich in seinem letzten Playoff-Lauf und verfügt über die besten Waffen, um RB Alvin Kamara und, wenn er gesund ist, gegen Michael Thomas zu gewinnen. Außerdem hat New Orleans in vielerlei Hinsicht eine Verteidigung, die so stark ist wie die von Chicago. Die Bären brauchen ihre Verteidigung, um von ihrer besten Seite zu sein, denn abgesehen von WR Allen Robinson haben sie nur wenige Bedrohungen. Sie sind das dritte Team seit dem Zusammenschluss von 1970, das nach sechs Niederlagen die Playoffs erreicht hat. Ravens (11-5) bei Titans (11-5) Sie trafen sich letztes Jahr in den Playoffs der Divisionen und Derrick Henry lief über die Ravens für 195 Meter. Sie trafen sich in der regulären Saison und der All-Pro, der zurücklief, hatte beim OT-Sieg im November auf dem Weg zu einer Saison mit 2.000 Yards 133 Yards. Baltimore hat sein eigenes hocheffizientes Laufspiel, eine dreigliedrige Operation mit Quarterback Lamar Jackson und RBs Gus Edwards und Rookie JK Dobbins. Die Ravens erzielten im Durchschnitt einen NFL-Bestwert von 191,9 Yards pro Spiel und ihre 3.071 Yards waren der dritthöchste in der NFL-Geschichte. Seltsamerweise ist dies das fünfte Playoff-Meeting, und das Straßenteam gewann jedes der ersten vier .___ Mehr AP NFL: https: //apnews.com/NFL und https://twitter.com/AP_NFLBarry Wilner, The Associated Press

Minnesota erzielte in den letzten 2:14 der Regulierung drei 3-Punkte-Starts , von Edwards, Towns und D’Angelo Russell, aber DeRozan antwortete furchtlos mit neun Punkten im letzten 1: 29. Der Höhepunkt war ein Drei-Punkte-Spiel mit 55 Sekunden Vorsprung, das San Antonio eine 109-107-Führung einbrachte, als er fuhr von Edwards, zog das Handcheck-Foul und baute ein Spielplatz-artiges Up-and-Under-Layup um, um den langen Armen der Städte auszuweichen. „Er ist ein Biest. Das ist DeMar. … Wir glauben an ihn. Wir sind wirklich sehr, sehr zuversichtlich in ihn “, sagte Dejounte Murray, der 22 Punkte und 14 Rebounds hatte. Nachdem DeRozan 12 Sekunden vor dem Ende zwei Freiwürfe gemacht hatte, hatten die Timberwolves den letzten Schuss, aber Russells erzwungenes Top-of Der Schlüsselversuch in einer Menschenmenge prallte vom Rand ab. „Das ist das Festhalten an der Lebendigkeit, die Faser, die man haben muss“, sagte Spurs-Trainer Gregg Popovich.

Er trifft in dieser Saison 56,9% aus der Ferne. … Backup Big Man Drew Eubanks war aufgrund der Gesundheits- und Sicherheitsprotokolle von COVID-19 nicht im Team.

Timberwolves: Naz Reid, der bei der Rückkehr der Städte wieder eine Bankrolle innehatte, hatte 16 Punkte in 16 Minuten. … Edwards had 13 points, half the career high he posted in Portland on Thursday. … Josh Okogie (angespannter linker Oberschenkel) verpasste sein sechstes Spiel in Folge. GEHEN IN DIE STADT Die Timberwolves verloren ihre sechs Spiele ohne Towns mit einem durchschnittlichen Vorsprung von 20 Punkten, da ihm die Produktion im Pfosten und sein Felgenschutz schmerzlich fehlten. “I. Ich werde immer mit KAT fahren « , sagte Trainer Ryan Saunders. » Die Leute kennen seine Zähigkeit nicht. « Städte mit einem dunkelblauen Schimmer auf dem Unterarm und pinkfarbenen Nikes auf den Füßen im ultimativen Zusammenstoß mit dem Stellvertreter des Teams neongrüne Uniformen trugen ebenfalls eine Grimasse, als er sich durch das anhaltende Unbehagen arbeitete. Er hatte in neun Minuten des dritten Quartals 12 Punkte. „Wir müssen hart spielen können, ob er spielt oder nicht. « , Sagte Beasley.

Die Liga wollte die Geldklumpen, die ihre Sendepartner zu Beginn der Weihnachtswoche vor sich hatten, und wusste sogar, welches Risiko ab diesem Zeitpunkt inhärent war.
Der amerikanische Golfer Justin Thomas entschuldigte sich, nachdem er in der dritten Runde des Sentry Tournament of Champions am Samstag in Hawaii einen homophoben Bogen benutzt hatte. Der Vorfall ereignete sich am vierten Loch, nachdem Thomas, der Titelverteidiger, einen 5-Fuß-Par-Putt verpasst hatte. Als der Nummer 3-Spieler der Welt auf das Drehgestell klopfte, nahmen Mikrofone den Bogen auf, für dessen Verwendung sich der 26-Jährige später entschuldigte. « Es gibt einfach keine Entschuldigung », sagte Thomas. « Ich bin ein Erwachsener. Ich bin ein erwachsener Mann. Es gibt absolut keinen Grund für mich, so etwas zu sagen. Es ist schrecklich. Es ist mir äußerst peinlich. Es ist nicht wer ich bin. Es ist nicht die Art von Person, die ich bin Aber leider habe ich es getan und ich muss es mir leisten und ich entschuldige mich sehr. » Thomas sagte, er sei sich erst nach seiner Runde bewusst, dass es aufgegriffen worden sei und ein Thema in den sozialen Medien sei. CLOCK | Justin Thomas entschuldigt sich für den homophoben Bogen: « Wie ich schon sagte, es ist unentschuldbar. Ich bin sprachlos. Es ist schlecht. Es gibt keinen anderen Weg, es auszudrücken. Ich muss es besser machen. Ich muss besser sein », sagte er. « Es ist definitiv eine Lernerfahrung. Ich entschuldige mich zutiefst bei allen, die ich beleidigt habe, und ich werde deswegen besser. » Thomas wird wahrscheinlich wegen Verhaltens bestraft, das nicht zu einem Profi wird – obwohl die PGA Tour keine Verhaltensstrafe offenlegt. « Wie er nach seiner Runde ausdrückte, sind wir uns einig, dass Justins Kommentar inakzeptabel war », sagte die PGA Tour in einer Erklärung. Vor einem Jahr verlor Scott Piercy zwei Werbeverträge, weil er ein homophobes Mem gegen den schwulen demokratischen Präsidentschaftskandidaten Pete Buttigieg geteilt hatte, als er bekannt gab, dass er seine Kampagne aussetzen würde. Piercy verwies auch auf die rechtsextreme Verschwörungstheorie QAnon. Patrick Reed entschuldigte sich auch 2014 in Shanghai, als er nach drei Putten in Verbindung mit einem homophoben Bogen fluchte. Thomas, der im vergangenen Jahr eine Woche lang die Nummer 1 der Welt erreichte, ist der Titelverteidiger in Kapalua. Er beendete den Samstag mit einem 5-unter 68 und ist vier Schüsse hinter der Führung.

DALLAS – Tim Hardaway Jr. erzielte ein Saisonhoch von 36 Punkten, Trey Burke tat dasselbe mit 29 und Luka Doncic hatte ein weiteres Triple-Double, als die unterbesetzten Dallas Mavericks am Samstagabend die Orlando Magic 112-98 besiegten. Hardaway und Burke übernahm erweiterte Rollen, um Dallas zu helfen, zum ersten Mal in dieser Saison über 500 zu kommen. Die Starter Josh Richardson und Dorian Finney-Smith sowie der Backup Point Guard Jalen Brunson fielen aufgrund der COVID-19-Protokolle aus. Die drei Mavericks kehrten nicht mit dem Team von zurück Denver nach einem 124: 117-Sieg in der Verlängerung am Donnerstag, und Trainer Rick Carlisle würde nicht darüber diskutieren, wie lange sie ausfallen würden. Einer der drei, der nicht identifiziert wurde, wurde positiv auf das Virus getestet. Hardaway und Burke machten es für Doncic zu einem eher ruhigen zweiten Triple-Double der Saison und kombinierten 15 von 21 aus 3-Punkte-Reichweite, während der Star Point Guard hatte 20 Punkte, 11 Rebounds und 10 Assists. « We got here on the 5am Denver trip, » said Carlisle that the team skipped a morning shootaround because of the COVID-19 issues. “I was very impressed with our concentration and concentration. And it all started with Luka. He understood exactly what the situation was like. “Burke, who missed the Denver trip with an illness that Carlisle said had no coronavirus exposure, was 7 out of 8 from a long distance to help the Mavericks win 20 out of 40 against an Orlando team quit for the fewest allowed 3s per game. « He’s a dangerous goalscorer, » said Carlisle. “I think he’s playing well for us because he knows we have great faith in him. He’s the guy who can only get hot out there. “Nikola Vucevic had 30 points and 15 rebounds, and Aaron Gordon scored 16 points a night after missing a 42-point loss in Houston with a sore left Achilles tendon when the Magic lost their ninth. It was Orlando’s second game excluding guard Markelle Fultz, who missed the season with a knee injury, and Gordon said it was the first time he’d played point guard since high school. « The team needs me to take some of the burden of initiating the crime, » said Gordon. “I have to take it on my shoulders to get better organized. There were times when it was just messy. “TIP-INSMagic: F Evan Fournier missed his fifth game in a row with back pain. Coach Steve Clifford said he could return against Milwaukee on Monday. … Vucevic missed his first five 3s and finished 2 of 7 while Gordon was 1 of 7. Orlando was 6 out of 31 from across the arch. Mavericks: A change in rating gave Doncic a career-best fifth heist against the Nuggets. With 38 points, nine rebounds and 13 assists, he became the first player in NBA history with at least these sums in these four categories. … First-round rookie selection Josh Green started his first career due to the absence of COVID-19. He missed his only shot when he played 15 minutes. ROLLER COASTER QUARTERDoncic completed a roller coaster ride in the third quarter by hitting the buzzer with a long 3-pointer for a lead of 85-75. The Mavericks led by six points at halftime and six points behind in the third after a 15-1 run in Orlando with Gordon’s only three started. Dallas responded with an 18-2 run, with Hardaway scoring 12 points.

KAPALUA, Hawaii – Ryan Palmer erlebte in den letzten 15 Minuten am Samstag eine Reihe von Emotionen, die mit einem 9-unter-64-Sieg für die beste Runde der Woche und einem Anteil an der Führung mit Harris English beim Sentry Tournament of Champions endeten .
Nick Taylor of Abbotsford, BC, is in 21st place after a 4 under 69 year old. Mackenzie Hughes of Dundas, Ontario finished 40th in his third round after a 1-under-72.
Palmer believed he had problems with thin fairway metal approaching the green on par 5-18. It barely cleared native grass to the left of the green and rolled out to 12 feet, and he putted twice for birdie.
His score was fixed when rules officials determined there was no intent or penalty as he depressed a divot a few paces from where his golf ball was rolling after a muffled chip on the ninth hole.
English wasn’t so lucky with his second shot on the 18th. He was abandoned and arrived about 15 feet before the danger was removed. His only good break was that a marshal somehow spotted her. Instead of a third shot more than 200 yards away, he chopped 80 feet away and took two hard putts for par and a 66.
They were tied at 21 under 198, a shot ahead of Collin Morikawa, who was also flirting with difficulty on the plantation’s closing hole, ending in a birdie and shooting 65.
Up to the last hole, the third round in Kapalua was about making birdies so as not to lose ground. The score was exceptionally low, not just from one player, but from several, due to a soft course and little wind.
The first three withdrew.
Daniel Berger, who played with English in the last group, had a long eagle putt hanging from his lip on the 18th and had to be content with birdie and a 67 that left him three strokes, still in the mix.
Defending champion Justin Thomas eventually hit a shot he couldn’t find. Three times that week he hit it in knee-high native grass and managed to locate the ball and save par twice. He wasn’t so lucky on the sixth hole and sent it well to the right and into a deep ravine for a double bogey. Thomas bounced back for a 68 and was back four along with Sungjae Im (67).
Masters Champion Dustin Johnson did his best to keep up until his ride on the 15th par-5 sailed too far to the right and into danger, resulting in a bogey that felt even worse when you consider that it is a par 5 that he can achieve with one iron in two parts. He missed birdie opportunities and shot 69.7 shots off the lead.
Xander Schauffele shot a 62 on the last day two years ago to collect himself from five backwards, and such a result is possible under these ideal conditions. But there are plenty of players to climb, and English has shown no signs of retreating as he seeks his first win in just over seven years.
Palmer has gone even longer – 11 years since his last individual title on the PGA Tour – and did his best on Saturday. His only major mistake was the ninth par-5 hit when he shot his second shot to the left of the green, using the wrong club on a field that fell short and rolled down the slope into the fairway.
He knew where it was going and began to walk, taking a divot a few steps before the point where the ball was rolling. This was the injury that 10 years ago led to the disqualification of Camilo Villegas from this tournament on the 15th hole. Palmer met with the regular staff and was cleared because there was no intention of correcting his lie.
Palmer said when he saw the video he wasn’t sure what the officers were about. He later added that the ball was 5 feet away and « not even close to where I was ».
So his score was upheld and he’s now part of a two-way tie for the lead, a final group between two players trying to end a drought, a tournament they fortunately can play.
The field for the Tournament of Champions has expanded this year for 2020 winners and anyone who reached the Tour championship due to the COVID-19 pandemic that has closed the Tour for three months. Both Palmer and English made it to East Lake. They both want their next win to be one that will secure them a return to Maui.
Right behind is PGA champion Morikawa, who has won his third win in his last 14 tournaments worldwide.
