The Commanders had a productive game offensively, capturing 403 yards and sacking Tommy DeVito nine times. However, despite these efforts, the team was unable to secure a home win over the struggling Giants team. Sam Howell threw three interceptions and the Commanders lost three fumbles, which ultimately led to their defeat.
Despite their hard work, DeVito only managed to throw three touchdown passes, not enough to overcome the Giants’ advantage. As a result of this loss, the Commanders’ record now stands at seven losses in nine games.
Head coach Ron Rivera acknowledged that his team is currently at a low point and that they had an opportunity to win the game but failed to capitalize on it. He emphasized the importance of making conversions in order to win games moving forward. With only limited adjustments possible on a short week leading up to Thursday’s game in Dallas, it remains uncertain how much progress will be made towards improving the team’s performance.
As owner Josh Harris looks towards Week 12 and beyond, he will need to make some significant changes in order to put his team on a better path for future seasons. The question remains: how far down are the Commanders willing to go before making those changes?
