The Good: Commanders DE Chase Young is back

2: Chase Young was a menace on the defensive side, finishing with two sacks and three tackles for loss. This continued his great start to the season.

90: Terry McLaurin can flat-out play. The problem is the offense doesn't seem to target him enough. He received his first target in the middle of the second quarter, which is not the best way to win a game.

McLaurin finished with six receptions for 90 receiving yards, his most thus far this season. These included a tremendous catch where he held on while taking a blindside hit.

4.4: Chris Rodriguez Jr. had another solid game, outpacing Brian Robinson Jr. and finishing with 4.4 yards per carry.

+1: The Washington Commanders did win the turnover differential (+1) with the fumble recovery on the muffed punt, leading to their only points of the day. They also recovered another fumble midway through the fourth quarter with the Giants deep in the red zone.
