Jamin Davis - Commanders LB

One could have forgiven fans for feeling a little pessimistic when Bijan Robinson went in motion to the outside and Jamin Davis followed him. The first-round running back clearly felt this was a mismatch worth exploiting, but the linebacker came up with the goods to officially confirm another Washington Commanders victory.

This was the game's biggest moment and Davis stepped up. It was the big taking point, but the interception capped off a decent display overall from the former Kentucky star in Week 6.

Davis has taken a lot of heat since being drafted. But he's been far from the team's biggest issue on defense through six weeks - it's others around him at the defensive second level that's been the issue.

The explosive figure came up with eight tackles and also helped himself to a sack. Davis deciphered running lanes exceptionally well and had the closing speed needed to reach the point of attack to prevent substantial yards on the ground.

While having Davis lined up on the outside wouldn't be the preferred method moving forward, he at least stepped up with the game on the line. Something that should do wonders for his overall confidence as the campaign progresses.

Jack Del Rio's defense turned in their best display of the season by a considerable margin. It was a collective effort, but one could argue Davis was the pick of those on the Mercedes-Benz Stadium turf.
