Packers-Washington: Taylor Heinicke makes a premature Lambeau Leap (video)

At least you have the screenshot

Starting an NFL game at Lambeau Field was a dream come true for Washington quarterback Taylor Heinicke. The 28-year-old grew up a huge Packers fan whose favorite player was Brett Favre, influenced by his late father’s love for Green Bay.

Washington fell short to the Packers on Sunday, losing 24-10, but Heinicke was solid enough. He completed 25 of 37 passes for 268 yards, with a touchdown and an interception. He also added 95 rushing yards on 10 carries. His day would have been even better if he had held a rushing touchdown in the third quarter.
