WFT’s Backfield Could Tear Up Tampa Bay, according to Coach Jennifer King.

Jennifer King, the first Black female full-time coach in the NFL, knew her Washington Football Team was primed to win in Week 10, and beat Tom Brady and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, the top team in the NFC South.

Even though Washington was 2-6 before playing the Bucs on Sunday, King exuded calm confidence that her team was ready to turn things around.

“I think at the start of the season, I always joked with my friends about how good we could be if we could just stay healthy.”

With a laugh, King added, “But we didn’t stay healthy!”

“I think that’s difficult, but football is tough.”

You’ve got to figure out a way to make things happen.”

Washington’s record, according to King, does not reflect the team’s on-field prowess.

“We’re on the verge of making a deal.

Following a Week 9 bye, “The guys have been fantastic about coming in and working every day.”

There’s still a lot of football left, and I believe we’ll be much better down the stretch.”

And King was absolutely correct.

On Sunday, Washington had their best game of the season.

Tampa Bay was held to 273 yards and Brady was intercepted twice by the defense.

Taylor Heinicke, the backup quarterback turned starter for WFT, completed 81.25 percent of his passes for 256 yards and a touchdown.

Antonio Gibson not only scored two rushing touchdowns against the Buccaneers, who had only allowed two rushing touchdowns in their previous eight games, but he also set a season high with 24 rushing attempts.

The way Washington finished the game against Tampa Bay was perhaps the most impressive part of the game, and much of the credit goes to King and head running backs coach Randy Johnson.

Washington scored a touchdown on a 19-play drive that took 10 minutes and 55 seconds off the clock and was capped off by Antonio Gibson, the team’s leading rusher.

According to Sports Illustrated, Washington’s backfield exploded on Sunday, accounting for 56% of the offense’s output.
