The Commanders faced the Giants on Sunday and despite their impressive offensive performance, they suffered a 31-19 loss. The team accumulated 403 yards of offense, but their nine sacks of Tommy DeVito were not enough to secure a win at home. Sam Howell’s three interceptions and the team’s three fumbles also contributed to their defeat.
Head coach Ron Rivera expressed his disappointment at the missed opportunity for a win, despite the strong offensive numbers. He acknowledged that there are things that need to be evaluated and changed as they head into Week 12, although he recognized the limitations of making significant tweaks on a short week leading 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.
