On Sunday, the Commanders faced off against the Giants and put forth a strong effort, accumulating 403 yards of offense. However, despite their impressive offensive performance, they were unable to secure a victory at home. The Giants managed to sack Tommy DeVito nine times, which proved to be the difference in the game.
Despite their struggles on defense, head coach Ron Rivera acknowledged that the team is close to reaching a low point in their performance. He expressed his disappointment at the missed opportunity for a win, despite their strong offensive numbers. Rivera also mentioned 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 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. With seven losses in nine games so far this season, it’s clear that something needs to change if the Commanders want to turn things around and make a playoff run.
