Commanders’ latest close loss features more strong play by QB Sam Howell

SEATTLE (AP) — Sam Howell showed more signs Sunday that he may be the long-term answer at quarterback for the Washington Commanders.

His latest encouraging performance came in yet another close loss.

Howell did his part, especially in the fourth quarter, to give the Commanders a chance at a second straight road victory. But Washington was unable to stop Seattle on its final drive, and Jason Myers kicked a 43-yard field goal on the final play of the game to give the Seahawks a 29-26 win.

“We just got to find ways, when the game is tied, to go out there and make the plays and take control of the football game,” Howell said. “You don’t want to be in position where you got to go down, make a drive late to tie the game. We would like to be on the other side.

“Credit to our defense for most of the game, just keeping us in it. We made some plays down the stretch, but got to be better throughout the game to beat good teams like that.”

Four of Washington’s last five losses have come by one score, including two close defeats against NFC East-leading Philadelphia and a baffling setback against the last-place New York Giants. The Commanders (4-6) looked like a better team than the Seahawks for stretches on Sunday, but that won’t show up in the standings.
