Quarterbacks—D: Taylor Heinicke provided a brief spark after Dwayne Haskins played his way out of D.C.
Running backs—C: Antonio Gibson was solid early and J.D. McKissic caught a touchdown pass, but this group was ignored after halftime.
Receivers—C–: Without the injured Terry McLaurin, none of the wideouts made much of an impact.
Offensive line—D: This group allowed three sacks in 50 dropbacks, but protection was not always sound.
Defensive line—A–: Chase Young forced two turnovers, but the defense was on the field far too long.
Linebackers—C: Cole Holcomb returned to make a team-high 11 tackles, but the Panthers dominated time of possession.
Secondary—C–: Kam Curl's interception gave Washington brief life, but the Panthers' receivers were usually open.
Special teams—D–: Steven Sims' fumbled punt return put Washington in a hole it couldn't escape.
Coaching F: The team was flat in a big situation, and Rivera should have pulled Haskins far earlier.
