The Washington Commanders came close, but on third-and-goal at the 2-yard line with nine seconds left, Tennessee Titans linebacker David Long jumped in front of a Carson Wentz pass to snag an interception and seal a 21-17 win for Tennessee.

Offensive spotlight: Rookie wideout Dyami Brown caught both of his catchable targets for 105 yards and two touchdowns today, generating a 149.3 passer rating in the process.

Defensive spotlight: Titans interior rusher Jeffery Simmons is having quite the season. He added a sack, two hits and two hurries today, beating his blocker once every four snaps on average.

Rookie spotlight: Washington running back Brian Robinson Jr. made his debut, running for 22 yards — and 14 yards after contact — on nine carries.

Offensive line spotlight: The Commanders interior line struggled today. Andrew Norwell, Saahdiq Charles and Nick Martin combined to allow seven pressures on first review, and all three graded below 50.0.
