LANDOVER, Md. — Carson Wentz threw three interceptions in a 24-10 Washington Commanders loss to Cleveland that contributed to them getting eliminated from playoff contention. Wentz was making his first start since October after coach Ron Rivera made the quarterback change hoping to spark his team. Instead, the combination of the loss to the Browns and Green Bay's victory against Minnesota knocked Washington out of the playoff race. Deshaun Watson threw for three touchdown passes to help out-of-contention Cleveland play spoiler. Amari Cooper caught two of them and had 105 yards receiving.
