2018 Week 16 vs ATL (33 / 53 / 274 / 1 / 3 pass, 3 / 33 / 0 rush)
Making his first NFL start, Taylor Heinicke showed incredible toughness throughout in a performance filled with moxie. After a fumble on the opening quarterback-center exchange, he calmed down and leaned on Christian McCaffrey to move the chains. A well-orchestrated opening drive ended in a touchdown pass to Ian Thomas. Heinicke, feeling the pressure, rolled to his left and held the ball for as long as he could before throwing a high pass to the back line of the end zone. Thomas went high into the air for the pass and came down with it beautifully. Heinicke sustained a nasty elbow injury in the second quarter, forcing him out of the game for a few plays. He came back into the game, but mistakes plagued him from that point. His first of three interceptions came on a roll right in the red zone, with the ball being tipped on a pass before landing in the arms of an Atlanta player. Heinicke scrambled when the opportunity presented itself, but often inviting pressure by backing up from the pocket rather than stepping up into it. A rookie mistake on his second pick was costly as Heinicke fell victim to staring down his intended receiver, allowing the defensive back to jump the pass. The final nail in the coffin for the day came on a deep heave down the left sideline. The Atlanta defensive back tracked the receiver all the way and made a fantastic play on a ball coming over his shoulder.
