The Washington Football Team is one game into the Taylor Heinicke era, and there's a chance that the Ryan Fitzpatrick era is over.
After Fitzpatrick injured his hip in the season-opening loss to the Los Angeles Chargers, Heinicke performed well and started the following game against the New York Giants.
Against the Giants, Heinicke led a game-winning drive in the final seconds. Fitzpatrick is currently on injured reserve, but even when he comes back, he might still find himself on the sidelines.
The team has looked more electric with Heinicke, who sports more mobility and athleticism than Fitzpatrick. If WFT continues to ride the momentum, it may be best to cement Heinicke as the starter moving forward.
It would be unfortunate for Fitzpatrick to lose the starting job because of an injury in his 17th season, but the NFL can be a cruel business.
