The Colts sent Carson Wentz to the Washington Commanders for two draft picks. Both are likely to be third-round picks because Wentz is injured and expected to miss at least four weeks. The Colts sent a draft pick to Atlanta for Matt Ryan. Neither of these players will play this weekend.
Instead, Sam Ehlinger will face off against Taylor Heinicke. Ehlinger was chosen in the sixth round of the 2021 NFL Draft. Heinicke was not drafted in 2015 and has bounced around the league before finally getting a shot in 2021. Wentz replaced Heinicke. Ehlinger is replacing Ryan.
What the Commanders have going for them is a solid defense. Heinicke has enough familiarity with his teammates after 2021 to create at least some confidence that he can lead Washington to a victory. They have been incredibly underwhelming on offense this season.
Repeat all I just said but replace Commanders with Colts and add that Ehlinger’s not thrown a pass in the regular season, and you have enough information to understand what you are likely to see this afternoon.
