LANDOVER, Md. — Dustin Hopkins made a 43-yard field goal on an untimed down, and Washington defeated the New York Giants 30-29.

Hopkins missed his first attempt to win the game, but he was given a reprieve when Dexter Lawrence was flagged for being offside.

His next attempt was good, giving Washington a wild victory and quarterback Taylor Heinicke another moment in the sun.

Heinicke threw for 336 yards and two touchdowns.
