PHILADELPHIA-- Mistakes and turnovers cost the Army West Point Black Knights dearly in the 2015 Army-Navy game. Here is a commentary on the game as it happened.

Army (2-10) falls to Navy (10-2) 21-17 in a thriller.  The Black Knights had their chances but couldn't convert.  It's the 14th straight loss to Navy for the Black Knights. Unofficially, Chris Carter passes for 208 yards and a touchdown on 9-of-15 completions.  Next year Army should have Chris Carter back. On the other side- Army won't have to deal with Navy's Keenan Reynolds anymore. I see a light at the end of the tunnel for the Black Knights.
