WATCH: Taylor Heinicke finds Cam Sims for touchdown to tie game

By Bryan Manning

The Carolina Panthers got off to a fast start in their Week 11 game against the Washington Football Team. Quarterback Cam Newton led the Panthers down the field before he found wide receiver D.J. Moore for a touchdown and an early 7-0 lead.

Taylor Heinicke and Washington had a chance to answer but went three-and-out on its opening possession.

Then, Washington’s defense went to work, stopping the Panthers to get the ball back to Heinicke and the offense. The WFT had a promising second drive until running back Antonio Gibson fumbles in the red zone. The WFT defense held the Panthers, giving Heinicke and the offense another chance.

This time, the offense took advantage.

Heinicke led another impressive drive into Carolina territory and capped things off by throwing a dart to wide receiver Cam Sims to tie the game.

It was quite the throw from Heinicke.

Carolina leads Washington, 14-7, late in the second quarter.
