The Las Vegas Raiders scored 9 fourth-quarter points to take a 15-14 lead with just 2:26 left to play in the game, but Taylor Heinicke and the Washington Football Team drove down the field on the ensuing drive to kick a game-winning 48-yard field goal by Brian Johnson.
Raiders rookie safety Trevon Moehrig had a pick-six in his hands but dropped the Heinicke pass a few plays before the successful field goal attempt.

Heinicke was his usual roller-coaster self against Las Vegas. He threw for nearly 200 passing yards, two touchdowns and a pick and was charted with one big-time throw and two turnover-worthy plays, including the dropped Moehrig interception. He got the ball out quickly and rarely tried anything down the football field. He only had five completions on throws 10-plus yards downfield and finished the contest with a sub-8.0 average depth of target.
Antonio Gibson led the way for the Washington backfield, carrying the ball 23 times for 88 yards. He also caught five of his six targets for 23 yards and a score. He forced three missed tackles and gained more than 60% of his yards after contact.
Wide Receivers/Tight Ends
Tight end Logan Thomas led the team in receiving with 48 yards before leaving the game with an injury. He had two first-down receptions and one touchdown on the day. No Washington wideout had more than 22 yards receiving (Terry McLaurin).
No Washington offensive lineman earned a PFF grade above 70.0 on the day. Offensive tackle Cornelius Lucas was the biggest liability in pass protection. He allowed four total pressures, including a sack, on 28 pass-blocking snaps. Charles Leno Jr. allowed two total pressures, and none of the team’s other three starters allowed any pressures on PFF’s first review of the broadcast film.
Cole Holcomb was everywhere for the Football Team defense. He led the linebacking corps in tackles and allowed just three receptions for 43 yards in coverage in addition to his two forced incompletions. Rookie Jamin Davis led the group in defensive stops (3) but also recorded four missed tackles that will ultimately drag his final PFF grade below 60.0.
Veteran cornerback Kendall Fuller led the team in total targets (8) and allowed eight receptions for 60 yards and five first downs on the day. No other Washington defensive back allowed more than two first downs in coverage on PFF’s first review of the broadcast film.
