The Taylor Heinicke to Terry McLaurin connection is one of the thriving parts of the Commanders’ inconsistent offense.

Washington eeked out a win over the Atlanta Falcons in Week 12 before battling their way to the aforementioned tie versus the New York Giants in Week 13.

During that time, they have racked up 384 receiving yards, which is actually worse than what the Giants have done. They top Big Blue on this list for one reason. They have better players at the position. One of the guys that come to mind is their best wide receiver, Terry McLaurin. He’s one of the elite players at his position. He was targeted 18 times during these past two weeks. He has been hard to stop, averaging 12.55 yards per catch during the past two games.

Heading into Week 14, McLaurin is 55 yards short of reaching the 1,000-yard threshold. Most recently, versus New York, he hauled in eight receptions for 105 yards, and he scored a touchdown.

The recent and solid production from McLaurin has been a welcomed sight for the Commanders, as he was held back and saw some pedestrian performances with Carson Wentz under center.

Washington has some other weapons as well: John Bates, Curtis Samuel, Brian Robinson Jr., and Jahan Dotson. Their receiving crew won’t be catching any passes this week thanks to the bye. Next up is a battle with New York on Sunday Night Football (December 18th).
