The Good:  Jacoby Brissett brings spark to Commanders offense

157.9: Jacoby Brissett came in and finished with a near-perfect passer rating (157.9), throwing two touchdowns, and nearly bringing the Washington Commanders back. He had almost four times as many yards per attempt as Sam Howell. 

141: Welcome back, Terry McLaurin.

Scary Terry went from being on the side of a milk carton to being the leading wide receiver in the game, finishing with six receptions for 141 yards and a touchdown. Ninety-three of those came in the last seven minutes after Brissett took over at quarterback.

Not only did McLaurin have the most single-game receiving yards of his career, but he surpassed 5,000 career receiving yards.   

2: After going four games without forcing a turnover, the Commanders forced two fumbles off Los Angeles Rams running back Kyren Williams. Unfortunately, they turned those into two drives combining for seven plays, minus 18 yards and no points.

Despite the fumbles, Williams had a field day on the ground, averaging 5.6 yards per carry and finishing with 152 rushing yards and a touchdown.
