LANDOVER, Md. — In a battle of winless NFC East teams and young, unproven quarterbacks, the unheralded Taylor Heinicke out-duked the 2019 sixth overall pick Daniel Jones, survived a couple of close scrapes and saw his Washington Football team win 30-29 on a last-second field goal.

A back-and-forth affair all night long, Heinicke - the undrafted fourth-year Old Dominion product - rebounded from an interception thrown deep in his own territory that set up the Giants to take a 29-27 lead with two minutes left. Heinicke marched Washington down the field and into scoring range. Dustin Hopkins first attempted a 48-yard field goal and missed wide right with time expiring. But the Giants drew an offsides penalty and Hopkins made the 43-yarder to win the game.

NFL Sunday notebook: Would-be Super Bowl contenders staring at possible 0-2 starts

  NFL Sunday notebook: Would-be Super Bowl contenders staring at possible 0-2 starts Falling to 0-2 would be a serious blow to Super Bowl visions for would-be contenders like the Ravens, Cowboys, Bills and Titans.Put nicely, the Kansas City Chiefs, with their own electrifying quarterback in Patrick Mahomes, have been quite a matchup problem for the Ravens. Jackson & Co. are 0-3 against Kansas City, including a 34-20 drubbing early last season. Now comes a serious gut check on Sunday night at the Big ATM (uh, M&T Bank Stadium).

Well, last week, the Giants did just that, but they didn't win, some of that because of the offense but a lot of that being on the defense. This week, the Giants face a Washington defense that allowed the Chargers to convert 73.7% of their third-down attempts. Washington offensive coordinator Scott Turner undoubtedly took meticulous notes after watching how Denver tight end Noah Fant led his team in targets and tied for the lead in receptions against the Giants . For whatever reason, the Giants left the middle of the field wide open, and the Broncos, who deployed Fant in the slot in 10 out of his 29

Each team entered Thursday night seeking rebounds from disappointing season-opening losses, and with questions looming large over the quarterback position. 

From NFL plays to college sports scores, all the top sports news you need to know every day.

New York’s Daniel Jones has yet to establish himself as a capable starter three years after going sixth overall in the draft. Meanwhile, a hip subluxation suffered by Week 1 starter Ryan Fitzpatrick forced Washington to turn to Taylor Heinicke, who entered the game with only nine appearances in his four-year NFL career. 

Jones’ struggles have involved accuracy and ball security. He ranked 31st in completion percentage last season, and for his career has completed 62.08% of his passes. And in 28 games, he has lost 18 fumbles while throwing 22 interceptions.

The series between Washington Football Team and the New York Giants is largely dominated by the Big Apple franchise, which has 105 wins, 69 losses and just four draws. Without beating the Giants since October 2018, the team from the US capital wants to end the five-match winning streak. After losing quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick in the second quarter of the loss to the Chargers and who could be sidelined for up to eight weeks, Washington Football Team head coach Ron Rivera bets on Taylor Heinicke to overcome traditional NFC East rivals. The backup came in during the defeat on the debut

But Washington always seems to be the get-right opponent for Jones. He entered the game with a 4-0 record against the team, and an improved completion clip of 68.25%.

Thursday night, Jones again shined versus Washington. He completed 22 of 32 attempts for 249 yards yards and a touchdown, and also hurt Washington with his legs while rushing for 95 yards and a touchdown on nine carries. But his impact could have been even greater. 

Jones had a 58-yard touchdown run called back because of holding. And Jones saw a wide open Darius Slayton drop a pass in the end zone.

32 things we learned from Week 2 of the 2021 NFL season

  32 things we learned from Week 2 of the 2021 NFL season The NFL season is only two weeks old, but several players – including Kyler Murray, Tom Brady and Derek Carr – are building cases for MVP honors.1. Tough day for quarterbacks throughout the league, the Chicago Bears' Andy Dalton (knee), Houston Texans' Tyrod Taylor (hamstring), Miami Dolphins' Tua Tagovailoa (ribs) and Indianapolis Colts' Carson Wentz (ankle) all going down. The Las Vegas Raiders' Derek Carr and Cleveland Browns' Baker Mayfield also endured (kneeling) eight counts, but persevered and continued in victorious efforts.

The Giants are taking something of a big risk with an early-season shakeup of their offensive line which will reportedly see not one, but two changes on the starting unit. With starting left guard Shane Lemieux ailing with a knee injury that could keep him out multiple weeks, the New York Giants plan to roll the dice with a newly configured offensive line for their Thursday night meeting against the Washington Football Team . New York is reportedly planning to move Nick Gates from center to left guard and insert Billy Price at center, whom the team acquired in a trade with the Bengals on August

In the second quarter, back-to-back scoring drives enabled Washington to overtake the Giatns for a 14-10 lead. And then in the fourth quarter, a two-play, 75-yard scoring drive capped by a 19-yard touchdown pass to Ricky Seals-Jones put Washington up 27-26 with 4:33 left. 

But after a strong stand by the defense, Heinicke threw an interception to New York’s James Bradberry at the Washington 20, setting the Giants up to retake the lead 29-27 on a 35-yard Graham Gano field goal with two minutes left. 

But on his final drive, Heinicke completed six of eight passes to pace the 50-yard scoring drive, and finished the game having completed 34 of 46 passes for 336 yards, two touchdowns and the interception.
