WFT Digs Early 21-Point Hole with Turnovers in Buffalo

Early in the game, Washington digs the hole deeper with turnovers

The 1-1 Washington Football Team desperately needs a good showing and a win. On Sunday they're facing the 1-1 Buffalo Bills on the road, trying to get their defense back on track, and trying to make another showing on offense with young quarterback Taylor Heinicke.

Washington's first drive resulted in a three-and-out, gaining just nine yards. That initial drive was on the heels of a Buffalo Bills' eight-play, 75-yard touchdown drive on their first possession of the game.

The ensuing Washington drive fared even worse than the first, with a Logan Thomas fumble after a 17-yard pass catch-and-run. Thomas made a nice catch and was trying to extend the play when he fumbled just before being tackled.

The following Bills' drive netted another seven points after an eight-play, 52-yard drive, and a seven-yard touchdown pass from quarterback Josh Allen to wide receiver Zack Moss that took 4:12 off the clock and gave the Bills a 14-0 lead.
