The Washington Commanders enter their bye week with the confusion and disappointment surrounding their tie at the Meadowlands but looking ahead to a crucial Week 15 rematch with the New York Giants flexed to primetime. The WTOP Sports team breaks down the final stretch run for the Burgundy and Gold and reminisces about the last time Washington’s NFL team was tops in the local sports landscape.

Also inside the D.C. Sports Huddle presented by MGM National Harbor: Should the Commanders have made a run at Baker Mayfield? We debate whether the former No. 1 overall pick would be a good fit at QB in Washington and point out the one tie that could attract him to the nation’s capital.

Huddle up with WTOP Sports Director George Wallace, Senior Content Producer Rob Woodfork and fellow sports anchor Dave Preston.
