The Washington Commanders defeated the Atlanta Falcons Sunday to improve to 7-5. It was Washington’s sixth win in its last seven games, and the Commanders currently hold the NFC’s final playoff spot.
Five of Washington’s last six wins have come with Taylor Heinicke under center. And one of the more enjoyable aspects of Washington’s winning streak is which Jordan sneakers he will purchase after another win.
Heinicke said last week that if the Commanders beat the Falcons in Week 12, the running backs would receive Jordans this week. After Sunday’s win, Heinicke said running back Antonio Gibson was already in his ear about the new shoes.
So what will the new Jordans look like?
If you’re confused, I do understand. However, the Falcons added the gold to their throwbacks this season, giving Heinicke more options besides the red and black only.
Heinicke has undoubtedly thought about these shoes. A Georgia native, Heinicke is now 2-0 vs. the Falcons in his career.
This trend is popular with his teammates. Heinicke gave the tight ends shoes last week, and John Bates was sporting his in a postgame interview. Meanwhile, rookie Cole Turner took to Twitter to social media to approve of his new kicks.
The Commanders play the Giants next — two games in a row. Heinicke is 2-0 against the Giants as a starting quarterback, but this New York team is much different than the one from a year ago.
