Commanders’ top offensive player grades for Week 8, per PFF

The Washington Commanders won their third consecutive game Sunday, defeating the Indianapolis Colts 17-16, thanks to some late-game magic from Taylor Heinicke and Terry McLaurin.

Until Washington’s final two drives, the Commanders offense looked lifeless. On the final two drives, Washington gained 171 of its 362 total yards. Before the fourth quarter, the Commanders had only put together one scoring drive, a six-play, 75-yard drive in the second quarter.

Heinicke completed 23 of 31 passes for 279 yards with one touchdown and one interception. His one interception set the Colts up deep in Washington territory, leading to their only touchdown.
