For a while there, it looked as though the Buffalo Bills were going to mop the floor with the Washington Football Team on Sunday.
An embarrassing start from the defense, a costly Logan Thomas fumble and a bad-looking interception from Taylor Heinicke were just some of the lowlights from the first half at Highmark Stadium.
Somehow, though, Washington got right back in the game. Antonio Gibson got the comeback started with an electrifying 73-yard touchdown, further proving that he’s one of the best young playmakers in the NFL.
Washington Football Team kicker Dustin Hopkins recovered his own kickoff vs the Bills on Sunday.
We can watch that on repeat for hours. However, the highlight-reel touchdown scamper was buried on the news front on the ensuing kickoff! That’ll happen when your kicker manages to recover his own kickoff.
That’s right, folks. The wind in Buffalo was absolutely menacing and it allowed Dustin Hopkins, who showed tremendous effort on the play, to swoop in and recover the kick deep inside Buffalo territory.
Talk about a momentum shift!
Forget the rest of the season, we might not see that happen again for the next five years. Can anyone recall the last time they saw this?
The best part is that Hopkins’ impossible recovery set the stage for Heinicke to bring Washington within one score with a TD run of his own.
The Bills have since went back up by 10 with a field goal, but that doesn’t change that this might go down one of the highlights of the season.
