The Washington Football Team (6-7) controlled their destiny entering Sunday’s game. They didn’t play like it until the Fourth Quarter. At that point it was too late, losing 27-20 to the Dallas Cowboys (9-4).

Dallas scored 24 points in the First half, taking an early 18-point lead in the First Quarter. They would go on to score two field goals in the Second and kept Washington scoreless the entire half. Washington came alive in the Third Quarter thanks to a 43-yard pass from QB Taylor Heinicke to WR Cam Sims and a two-point conversion. Washington scored again late in the Fourth with two more touchdowns, bringing the score within seven.

But it was over, thanks to an inability to dominate in ball possession and an injured quarterback. Heinicke injured his knee early in the Fourth Quarter and never returned. He completed 11-25 for 122 yards, with one touchdown and interception. Kyle Allen finished out the day at the helm for Washington, only to fumble in the last 40 seconds of the game. According reports, Heinicke was not the only injury of the game.

Washington Football Team: Next Steps

Sunday’s loss broke a four-game winning streak. It also gives the Philadelphia Eagles (6-7) hope of making the playoffs. A Washington Football Team win today would have made a convincing argument for Wild Card contention. The whole game was out of pace, a complete embarrassment at home, and was the final home game of the season. But this is only one of two: They’ll face the Cowboys on the road in Dallas for the season finale. Until then, it’s off to Philadelphia. Whatever happened today cannot happen again. Otherwise, it’s to the couch for the burgundy and gold.
