The Commanders secondary has been torn to shreds like a new present on Christmas Day, and the case was no different this past Sunday. The backup from out of nowhere Cooper Rush continued to stake his claim as the real deal putting up 2 TDs and 223 yards. His counterpart from Washington, Carson Wentz continued to struggle, putting up 1 TD and two interceptions. Wideout CeeDee Lamb was Rush’s favorite target again, having 97 receiving yards and a TD. The rookie out of Penn State, Jahan Dotson, seemed to be the only bright spot in the Washington offense putting up 1 TD.
The actual game changer in this one was All-Pro Corner Trevon Diggs. Every time Washington had an opportunity to score or make a big play, Diggs was there to break it up. The reigning Interceptions leader had an Interception in this game and three pass breakups. Rookie Daron Bland got a pick off of Wentz in the game.
Washington has to figure out what’s wrong & correct it fast as they are still at the bottom of the NFC East, where every other team has at least a .750-win percentage. Commanders Head Coach Ron Rivera was quoted saying, “We have to be disciplined to win ball games” in his postgame presser. They will face Derrick Henry & the Tennessee Titans at home next week. This is a must-win, considering the Commanders currently have the 2nd worst record in the league. The Titans now lead the all-time series 7-6.
