Which Washington Commanders news stories are hitting the headlines ahead of what should be another eventful week for the organization?

It was another wild weekend of playoff action around the league. One game in particular brought great joy to Washington Commanders fans as the Dallas Cowboys once again failed to match their undeserved hype with a home hammering against the Green Bay Packers to fall at the first hurdle.

This provided some solace for the Commanders after another underwhelming campaign. Better days are ahead as Josh Harris' ownership group puts their ambitious plans into motion. While we wait for further developments, the stories causing debate include basking in a rival's misery, Sam Cosmi wanting to be around a winner, Adam Peters bringing a sense of credibility, and Ben Johnson's soaring stock heading into his potential meeting with Washington in the coming days.

Let's delve into each topic in more detail.

Commanders fans bask in Cowboys' misery

When it's all said and done, the Dallas Cowboys' season lasted just one game longer than the Washington Commanders. After being given lofty expectations and untold hype, Mike McCarthy's men fell flat on their faces with an embarrassing defeat to the Green Bay Packers at AT&T Stadium.

This was music to the ears of every Commanders fan judging by the reaction on social media. The Cowboys are deserving of every piece of ridicule coming their way in the hours ahead. It was a performance devoid of inspiration from a team that had blown out almost everyone on home soil during the regular season.

Depending on what Jerry Jones decides to do with head coach Mike McCarthy, the Commanders could have extra competition in the head coaching market. Something to keep a eye on in the aftermath of such a pathetic loss.
