Stud: CeeDee Lamb, WR

CeeDee Lamb started slowly in Week 3 but that wasn’t the case this weekend. Against Washington, he had three receptions in a row on their third drive of the game, gaining 56 yards after hauling in a 23-yarder, a 16-yarder, and a 17-yarder to bring them down to the Washington 31-yard line.

His great night continued as he also had a touchdown that put the game out of reach. Not long after Washington made it a five-point game, Lamb got free on a double move and caught a 30-yard touchdown pass to make it a 22-10 lead for the Cowboys.

No. 88 finished with six receptions for 97 yards with the touchdown as he continues to prove he’s the true No. 1 option for the Cowboys.

Dud: Anthony Brown, CB

Anthony Brown is an underrated cornerback but he didn’t have his best day on Sunday. Brown gave up a touchdown to Jahan Dotson and then was beaten by him again on a third-and-eight in the third quarter. Wentz slipped away from pressure and threw it deep to Dotson, who caught a slightly underthrown ball for a 31-yard gain.

Another gaffe from Brown happened in the final quarter when it appeared the Cowboys forced a third-down after a pass intended for Dotson hit the turf. However, Brown was called for holding that gave the Commanders eight yards and a fresh set of downs.
