Stud: Ceedee Lamb, Wide Receiver
The offense was ugly on Sunday, but CeeDee Lamb continued to give his all.
He was able to pull the passes down when they were within range and even with a 23-6 deficit he was out there trying to bowl over defensive backs and fight for extra yards. In all, he had five receptions for 52 yards and the lone touchdown of the game.
Lamb was asked to step into the No. 1 role this year and handled it well. The third-year pro finished with 107 receptions for 1,359 yards with nine touchdowns. It was a remarkable season for him but he’s going to need some help in the playoffs in order for this team to make a run.
Dud: KaVontae Turpin, Returner
After the special teams unit gifted the Commanders seven points when trying to punt the ball, they decided to give another gift when trying to field a punt. Dallas just lucked out as McLaurin dropped an easy first-down reception and forced a punt from Washington.
KaVontae Turpin was back deep and got under the ball but muffed it and it was recovered by Christian Holmes, who gave his team the ball at the Cowboys’ 15-yard line. The defense held them and Joey Slye missed the field goal, but it was luck that saved them from being down 10-0.
