The Washington Football Team suffered through a heartbreaking loss against the Giants on Sunday, but there are some positives to build on going forward.

The Washington Football Team found another way to lose on Sunday, but this time it was an emotional experience and not an anger-inducing moment that typically defines a Burgundy and Gold loss.  The team had a late game rally that nearly became a victory, but a two-point conversion with just over 40seconds remaining failed.

Deflated.  Dazed.  Numb.  Speechless.  Feel free to insert your own adjective.  This loss hurts.  WFT fans knew the team would convert that two-point conversion and that is why it feels rotten to the core.  It’s a very difficult and heartbreaking loss, but the WFT must forge ahead while the fans will try to understand and stay supportive.

Consecutive losses to the Cardinals, Browns, Ravens, and Rams didn’t sting like this loss to the Giants.  After those four straight blowouts, this game against Big Blue was within reach at the end.  We could feel it.  We could taste it.  We could see it.  It didn’t happen and the losing streak now rises to five games and counting.

The WFT played with a lot of heart and determination, but coming up that short against a division rival seems to hurt more than the four previous games combined. While this loss is still fresh in our minds, the team must move on from it quickly and focus on the Cowboys game at home this coming Sunday.

With that in mind, we come to our weekly “Five and Five” and it is not the “oh woe is me” or major finger pointing that we have seen since the losing streak began.  A loss is a loss and there are negatives to talk about to be sure, but there were some positives in the Giants game and there are plenty to mention after this heartbreaker.  Let’s jump right to it.
