The Washington Commanders have raved about Taylor Heinicke’s impact on an offense that struggled in the weeks prior to his inspiring performance against the Packers. Given the lift Heinicke’s play has provided and the contractual benefit of benching Carson Wentz for good, is it safe to say we’ve seen the last of No. 11 under center?

Also inside the D.C. Sports Huddle presented by MGM National Harbor: Indianapolis is debuting Sam Ehlinger on Sunday — a quarterback who has yet to throw an NFL pass, let alone start a game. Does this help or hurt a Commanders defense that bested future Hall-of-Famer Aaron Rodgers last week?

Huddle up with WTOP Sports Director George Wallace, Senior Content Producer Rob Woodfork and fellow sports anchor Dave Preston.
