Washington Commanders Ex Brandon Scherff Leads Jacksonville Jaguars to AFC South Title – NFL Tracker

7 JAN SCHERFF, JAGS MAKE PLAYOFFS The Washington Chiefs may not be in the playoffs this year, but a familiar face will be.

After the Jacksonville Jaguars beat the Tennessee Titans on Saturday night, quarterback Brandon Scherff punched his ticket to the playoffs. He started every game for the Jaguars this season.

Scherff played for Washington from 2015-21, and is now making his third playoff appearance.

5 JAN HAMLIN AWAKE Buffalo Bills safety Damar Hamlin is no longer in a coma, awake and showing more signs of improvement, according to teammate Kaiir Elam.

Hamlin has been in the hospital since Monday night after suffering cardiac arrest in MNF’s game against the Cincinnati Bengals.

SAM HOWELL STARTS JANUARY 4 Despite earlier reports that Washington would start Taylor Heinicke at quarterback in Sunday’s season finale, it was rookie Sam Howell who was seen taking his first reps when practice began Wednesday.

Additionally, when the passers and receivers left to throw routes, Howell was throwing to starters like Terry McLaurin, Curtis Samuel and Jahan Dotson.

Ron Rivera confirmed in his press conference that Howell would start the Week 18 finale against the Dallas Cowboys.

4 WASHINGTON COMMANDERS RETURN TO HEINICKE A week after quarterback Carson Wentz replaced Taylor Heinicke as the team’s starter, Washington is reportedly reversing course.

While Heinicke is expected to be the starter, the same report says rookie Sam Howell will also get playing time, making his NFL debut in the final week of the regular season.

So far, the team has not yet confirmed.

All this would suggest that

Carson Wentz is sitting (again) … even though coach Ron Rivera is saying he has “no regrets” about the fateful decision to start Wentz in last week’s playoff-hope-killing loss to the Browns.

The 7-8-1 Chiefs are probably wise to start the experiment with rookie Howell, as there’s little else to accomplish here against 12-4 Dallas, who is playoff-bound and still trying to win the NFC East.

JANUARY 3 NFL NO RESPONSE ON BILLS-BENGALS RESUME The NFL released a statement Tuesday afternoon regarding the resumption of the Buffalo Bills vs. Cincinnati Bengals game.

All Week 18 games will currently be played as scheduled.

JANUARY 2 MNF SUSPENDED AFTER SCARY DROP The Buffalo Bills and Cincinnati Bengals are currently suspended after one of the scariest moments in NFL history.

Bills defensive back Damar Hamlin went down on the field with 5:58 left in the first quarter.

There is no timetable for when the game will return to action.

JANUARY 2 Commanders PLAY LATE COMBOS The Washington Commanders will play the Dallas Cowboys at 4:25 PM EST on Sunday, the NFL announced today.

The NFC East games are the only non-west coast games scheduled for a later time period.

Sunday Night Football will be between the Detroit Lions and the Green Bay Packers at Lambeau Field on NBC.

JANUARY 1 COMMANDERS ELIMINATED The day began with the Washington Commanders controlling their playoff destiny, but it ended with the worst possible result.

Due to wins by the Detroit Lions, Seattle Seahawks and Green Bay Packers, the Commanders are eliminated from the playoffs.

At 7-8-1, the Commanders hold the 10th seed in the NFC with no chance of making the top 7.

1 JAN WENTZ WOBBLY Carson Wentz is the Commanders “new” starter today … and it’s not working.

He has gone 2-of-6 for 13 yards with two interceptions in just over a quarter.

This is fair. At home against the Browns, Wentz has … two completions. And two interceptions.

And some in the audience at FedEx are already chanting for a change in Taylor Heinicke.


The moves come after Antonio Gibson was ruled out and Kam Curl’s status turned into questionable for Sunday’s game against the Browns.

The Chiefs host the Browns at 1pm on Sunday at FedEx Field.

DECEMBER 30 CHARLES LENO NAMED Washington NFLPA COMMUNITY MVP Washington Commanders offensive tackle Charles Leno Jr. is the Week 17 NFLPA Community MVP.

He pledged more than $90,000 in donations, gifts and experiences through his foundation’s work during the “25 Days of Leno Claus” initiative.

Leno has also been named the Commanders’ nominee for the Walter Payton Man of the Year Award, with the winner to be announced at NFL Honors in February.

DEC 28 CARSON WENTZ STARTS FOR COMMANDERS Washington coach Ron Rivera said Tuesday he needed to talk with his team before making a final decision on his starting quarterback moving forward.

With reports coming out Wednesday morning, it appears he has done just that and has made the decision to return to quarterback Carson Wentz as the team’s starter.

The Chiefs host the Cleveland Browns this weekend, with a playoff scenario on the line.

DEC 26 JOSH NORMAN WORKS OUT FOR PANTHERS The Carolina Panthers are bringing in cornerback Josh Norman for a workout.

Norman, 35, played four seasons with Washington from 2016-19, but his first NFL home was in Carolina.

Norman made the 2015 Pro Bowl in his final season with the Panthers, where the team went all the way to Super Bowl 50 before losing to the Denver Broncos.

If signed, Norman will replace star rookie Jaycee Horn, who broke his wrist Saturday against the Detroit Lions.

DECEMBER 24 HEINICKE RULES FOR WENTZ The Washington Chiefs are trading quarterbacks.

After two straight turnovers in the fourth quarter and a 16-point deficit, the Commanders are inserting Carson Wentz into the game for Heinicke.

Heinicke’s day ends with 13 completions on 18 attempts for 166 yards, two touchdowns and an interception.

DECEMBER 21 Commanders SEND 4 TO PRO BOWL The Washington Commanders will be well represented at this year’s Pro Bowl.

Wide receiver Terry McLaurin, who passed 1,000 yards for the season Sunday against the New York Giants, was the lone starter on offense.

On defense, defensive tackle Jonathan Allen did it for the second year in a row.

The Commanders will also be represented by punter Tress Way and special teams ace Jeremy Reaves.

Daron Payne and Montez Sweat have been named as alternates.

DECEMBER 18 FEEL YOUNG VS. GIANTS The team, media and fans have all been wondering when defensive end Chase Young might make his debut.

Young has never appeared on the field of play as a member of the Commanders’ defense.

However, that unit has been the bright spot on a team with their playoff fate in their hands.

However, according to reports Sunday morning, hopes of getting No. 99 on the field this weekend against the New York Giants are gone.

Now, everyone will turn to Washington’s road contest against the San Francisco 49ers to see if maybe that’s when Chase takes the field for the first time in over a year.

DEC 17 Chiefs MAKE 2 MOVES BEFORE GIANTS GAME The Washington Chiefs are activating offensive lineman Wes Martin and clearing defensive tackle Efe Obada ahead of their Sunday Night Football contest against the New York Giants.

Obada was questionable with a finger injury, but he will suit up against the Giants. Martin has not appeared for the Commanders since Week 4.

DECEMBER 12 ARMY CARSON WENTZ The Washington Giants are activating Carson Wentz off injured reserve today.

Wentz last played in Week 6 against the Chicago Bears where he broke his thumb and required surgery. In a corresponding move, the team placed offensive lineman Tyler Larsen on injured reserve.

DEC 8 WR ODELL BECKHAM JR. DALLAS DEAL FAILS It has been reported that the Dallas Cowboys and New York Giants were two of the leading candidates to acquire the services of free agent receiver Odell Beckham Jr.

After leaving his visit with Dallas without a contract offer, however, it appears that if he does return to the NFC East, it will have to be with New York, who face the Washington Commanders next weekend.

Even if Beckham were to sign with the Giants, it would be unreasonable to expect him to be ready to play next Sunday night.

The reason no offer was made is said to be due to concerns that he might not be available at all in 2022. Making it less likely that Washington will see him as the old division foe this season.

DEC 6 NOMINATE WPMOY All 32 teams nominated a player to be nominated for the Walter Payton Man of the Year Award. This season, that honor for Washington goes to offensive tackle Charles Leno Jr.

Leno, 31, signed a three-year, $37.5 million contract this offseason.

DECEMBER 5 LEADERS – OUCH Washington’s starting center Tyler Larsen exited a 20-20 tie with the Giants with a leg injury and left the field. … and now there’s a report on the severity of the injury, The Athletic saying that Larsen suffered a knee sprain and that “this could be a season-ending injury for the second year in a row” for Larsen, who endured an Achilles. injury last season.

DECEMBER 5 WASHINGTON CHIEFS LOSE LINEBACKER It was reported and confirmed Monday that team captain Cole Holcomb had foot surgery and will miss the remainder of the NFL postseason.

DECEMBER 4 NO FOLLOW-UP FOR YOUNG FOR WEEK 13 AT NEW YORK GIANTS The Washington Giants will reportedly wait until the end of the week when the team hosts the Giants for Week 15 to bring back defensive end Chase Young (knee). .

DECEMBER 1 JOEY SLYE NAMED PLAYER OF THE MONTH Saint Washington Commanders forward Joey Slye is taking home some hardware.

Slye made all 13 of his field goal attempts during the month of November as the Commanders went 3-1. In Week 10 against the undefeated Philadelphia Eagles, Slye kicked four field goals and two extra points in the upset victory.
