INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Taylor Heinicke’s 1-yard touchdown plunge with 22 seconds left capped an 89-yard drive in the final 2 1/2 minutes and lifted the Washington Commanders to a 17-16 victory at Indianapolis.

Local prep star Terry McLaurin set up the decisive score by wrestling the ball away from cornerback Stephon Gilmore one play before Heinicke scored. Washington has won three straight. Indy managed only one TD in Sam Ehlinger’s first career start. He took over at quarterback this week when coach Frank Reich announced longtime veteran Matt Ryan had been benched.

Indy led 16-7 with 11:12 to go but couldn’t close it out.
