The Washington Commanders were not supposed to stand a chance in this game. They spent most of the week ruling players out or placing them on IR. They are starting a rookie QB, who is being protecting by a rookie guard that has only been active once this year, and never played a snap. Well, that’s not how this game is going, at least not in the first half.

Washington is up 13-6 going into the 2nd half, and the Dallas Cowboys have been a mess. Turnovers have been a huge problem, and it all started on special teams. Punter Bryan Anger dropped the snap giving Washington great field position, Sam Howell took full advantage of that and hit Terry McLaurin for a touchdown on his first NFL pass. Dallas also muffed a punt, but Washington couldn’t take advantage of that one after Joey Slye shanked a short FG. Slye also missed an extra point, and a 52-yard field goal later in the half.

Dak Prescott through two passes back-to-back to Kendall Fuller. He caught the second one to take it in for a Pick 6. Dallas came back on the final drive of the half to score a touchdown with 10 seconds left on the clock. Luckily no one can kick at FedEx Field today, and Brett Maher missed the extra point. Washington will get the ball back to start the 2nd half.
