The Washington Football Team entered its Week 6 game against the Kansas City Chiefs down the entire right side of the offensive line. All-Pro right guard Brandon Scherff missed his second consecutive game with an MCL injury, while impressive rookie right tackle Sam Cosmi missed the game with an ankle injury.

How would Washington’s offensive line keep quarterback Taylor Heinicke upright in the game?

Wes Schweitzer filled in for Scherff, while Cornelius Lucas stepped in for Cosmi, and the two former starters from 2020 ended up being Washington’s two highest-graded players in Week 6, according to Pro Football Focus.

Schweitzer was stellar, having one of Washington’s best single-game performances of 2021, recording an 89.5 overall grade. He was dominant run-blocking and solid in pass protection.

Lucas was right behind, recording an 82.9 grade. He scored 85.6 in pass protection. Left tackle Charles Leno continued his strong season, registering an 82.0 in pass protection. Center Chase Roullier finished with an overall grade of 81.2

Quarterback Taylor Heinicke finished with a 67.5 grade, while wide receiver Terry McLaurin scored a disappointing 53.6.

Defensive tackle Jonathan Allen was once again Washington’s highest-graded defender.

Washington travels to Green Bay in Week 7.
