The GIST: The Washington Football Team (WFT) grabbed a much-needed victory over the shorthanded Dallas Cowboys yesterday to end a five-game losing streak. A win’s a win!

Finally!: You’re telling us! The WFT picked up their second win of the season with a dominant 25–3 win against their NFC East rival. The defense was firing on all cylinders, recording six sacks, their highest tally since the season opener.

  • The offense was clicking, too. RB Antonio Gibson had 128 rushing yards and paid homage to LeBron James with his touchdown celebration, while QB Kyle Allen showed off his arm by going deep to wide receiver Terry McLaurin. We love to see it.

Any other good news?: Yes! Head coach Ron Rivera finishes the last of his cancer treatments today. Rivera said, “what I’ve been told is it’s headed in the right direction.” So good to hear.

Who are they playing next week?: Actually, the WFT have a Week 8 bye. They return on November 8th for a rematch against the NY Giants...and so will some fans in the stands.

  • FedEx Field will house around 3,000 fans, under the 10% capacity threshold set by the Maryland governor. Stay safe and mask up, D.C.!
