The Commanders faced off against the Giants on Sunday and despite their impressive offensive numbers, they fell short in their efforts to secure a win. They managed to collect 403 yards of offense but were unable to overcome the Giants’ defense.
The team’s defense also played a significant role in the game, sacking Tommy DeVito nine times. However, this effort was not enough to offset Sam Howell’s three interceptions and the team’s three fumbles. As a result, the Giants emerged victorious with a final score of 31-19.
This marked the seventh loss in nine games for the Commanders, leaving head coach Ron Rivera feeling disappointed about missed opportunities for wins. He acknowledged that changes need to be made as they head into Week 12, but he recognized the limitations of making significant tweaks on a short week leading up to Thursday’s game in Dallas.
As the season progresses, bigger questions remain about the team’s potential changes in ownership and their path for future seasons. Rivera will need to carefully evaluate his options and make strategic decisions that will help turn things around before it’s too late.
