The Commanders’ season ended, or at least their playoff hopes did, with a surprising loss to the New York Giants last Sunday. Dallas has looked great at times and terrible at other times, they have the talent to be a contender, but they need to find some consistency if they want to be more than a one and done playoff team.
Dallas made history on Sunday afternoon when they earned their second straight victory and fourth win in five matches by routing Carolina on the road, improving to 7-3 for the year while holding second place in the NFC East and possessing the first wild card spot for playoff selection. Dallas never trailed against Carolina as they led from start to finish, taking an early 7-0 lead after one quarter, 17-3 at halftime and 17-10 after three. Early in the fourth quarter, they broke open the game by scoring two touchdowns within 10 seconds to complete their win. Dallas owned a 311-187 advantage in total offense while also collecting 23 first downs against 13 for an overall time of possession advantage of 31:21 to 28:39 and forcing two turnovers, including a pick-six while not making mistakes themselves in game.
Washington faltered, making critical errors that led to their fourth consecutive loss at the hands of the Giants. Their mark fell to 4-7 overall while also placing third in their division and 12th overall in terms of playoff positioning. Washington never led against the Giants, trailing 7-3 after the opening quarter, 14-9 by halftime, and 14-12 after three quarters before being outscored 17-7 in the fourth stanza to take an unexpected loss. The Commanders held a 403-292 advantage in total offense, had 28 first downs while only surrendering 13, accumulated 28 first downs while giving up 13 and controlled the clock 34:51-25:09 but still lost. Washington missed an extra point, gave up four sacks and turned over six times during play for 21 points scored by New York, including an interception with one being turned over six times by Washington themselves without recording one takeaway in return.
The Cowboys are the better team, and while -10.5 points is a lot of points, they will easily cover. Dallas 34 Washington 17.
