This is the defining moment of Taylor Heinicke's career


Taylor Heinicke has been waiting for this moment for six years.

An undrafted and undersized quarterback out of an overlooked college program in 2015, Heinicke finally has the opportunity of a lifetime, a chance to prove himself as a starting quarterback in the NFL at 28 years old. The Old Dominion product has had to fight for every opportunity he's been given, and it still nearly drove him to give up on the game.

Now 1-0 as a starter for the Washington Football Team, after last week's thrilling 30-29 victory over the Giants, that moment is finally upon Heinicke. And "he's always ready for his moment," as the frequent refrain goes from teammate Terry McLaurin.
