The Commanders had a productive game offensively, capturing 403 yards and sacking Tommy DeVito nine times. Unfortunately, this wasn’t enough to secure a home win over the 2-8 Giants team, as Sam Howell threw three interceptions and the Commanders lost three fumbles. DeVito threw three touchdown passes, leading the Giants to a 31-19 victory. With their record at seven losses in nine games, head coach Ron Rivera acknowledged that the team is close to hitting rock bottom.
Rivera mentioned that the team is at a low point and that they had the opportunity to win the game, but failed to capitalize on their numbers. He emphasized the need to make conversions in order to win games. As the Commanders head into Week 12, Rivera acknowledged that there are changes that need to be made, but on a short week heading into Thursday’s game in Dallas, only limited adjustments will be possible. This raises the question of what owner Josh Harris will do in the final weeks and offseason to put his team on a better path for future seasons.
