Commanders embarrassed in Dallas

The Washington Commanders came into Thanksgiving looking for much more than Turkey. The Cowboys knew that they would need a win to keep any chance of winning the division alive, as they are two games behind the Eagles. Washington's defense had no answer for the Cowboys run game or passing attack; they allowed over 400 total yards and five touchdowns.

The Commanders young quarterback played well for the majority of the game until his late 4th quarter pick six. Sam Howell threw for 300 yards, but he failed to reach the end zone all game, as the Washington offense only scored 10 points. The prime time Thanksgiving day lost might be all that the new owner of the Commanders needed to see, and most likely will help him make the decision to move on from head coach Ron Rivera.

The Commanders lost both of their nationally televised games this season in blowout fashion, which does not seem to make the owner happy. Superstar wide receiver Terry McLaurin was held to four receptions and 50 yards, but on the other side of the ball, Dallas had four different receivers catch touchdowns. The trade that Washington made by sending both of their young pass rushers seemed to hurt them as they ended the game without a single sack! The pass protection of the commanders was lacking, and they allowed 4 sacks plus plenty of QB pressure.

The Howell project seems to be going downhill as his late-game struggles with turnovers continue against the rival Cowboys. At this point in the season, Washington should be looking to prepare themselves for next season and seeing what their young talent can do in the upcoming weeks.
