The Commanders faced off against the Giants on Sunday and despite their impressive offensive performance, they came up short in a 31-19 loss at home. Despite collecting 403 yards of offense, the team sacked Tommy DeVito nine times, which was not enough to secure a win. Sam Howell’s three interceptions and the team’s three fumbles were major contributors to their defeat.
Head coach Ron Rivera expressed his disappointment at the missed opportunity for a win, despite their strong offensive numbers. He acknowledged that there are things that need to be evaluated and changed as they head into Week 12, but recognized the limitations of making significant tweaks on a short week leading up to Thursday’s game in Dallas. As the season progresses, the bigger question remains about the team’s potential changes in ownership and their path for future seasons.
