It was Heinicke’s first career touchdown pass, joining Colts receiver Zach Pascal as the lone Monarchs to score NFL touchdowns in program history.

Heinicke would go 33-of-53 for 274 yards, one touchdown, and three interceptions in the game. He also left the game for a brief period with an elbow injury during the first half.
