Washington Football Team: Five positives and negatives from Week 7 win
Positive No. 5
For the second week in a row, middle linebacker Cole Holcomb was a definite positive. He was an absolute beast on Sunday and he was easily the team MVP on defense. Just ask Ezekiel Elliott. Or Andy Dalton. After five tackles, one sack, a pass deflection, and a timely interception, it is very easy to say that Holcomb was a positive at FedEx Field on this rainy Sunday.
Negative No. 5
This one should make all football fans angry. Jon Bostic clearly targeted Cowboys quarterback Andy Dalton midway through the third quarter. The Washington Football Team was penalized 15 yards and Bostic was disqualified from the game. It wasn’t a questionable call. It wasn’t an incorrect call. It was the right thing to do.
Dalton was clearly the victim of a dirty play and Bostic deserves a hefty fine plus a one-game suspension. The hit was uncalled for and it was more than just a poor judgment mistake from Bostic. This was the biggest negative on Sunday and it reflects poorly on the Burgundy and Gold.
