Washington Commanders head coach Ron Rivera didn’t appear to grasp the stakes for his crew on Sunday.

Following their ugly 24-10 loss to the Cleveland Browns, Rivera was requested if he would take into account beginning rookie quarterback Sam Howell in Week 18 if the Commanders have been eradicated from playoff rivalry, which they might be if the Inexperienced Bay Packers defeat the Minnesota Vikings within the 4:25 time slot.

Rivera’s response was to take a seat in silence for just a few seconds, earlier than asking: “We may very well be eradicated as we speak?”

NFL coaches are typically extraordinarily targeted on issues they’ll management, however it nonetheless appears wild to imagine that he didn’t know his crew’s playoff eventualities going into this week. 

Particularly given the choice at quarterback to not solely return to Carson Wentz — who had been ineffective all season previous to his harm — however to additionally stick to him all day when it was very clear he was not taking part in at a playoff caliber degree.

The Commanders are actually 7-8-1 and never solely want a win subsequent week, in addition they want some assist to make the playoffs. 

That could be a disappointing place to be in after beginning the season 7-5. Since then they’ve gone 0-3-1 and are near permitting the season to slide away from them. 

The Commanders have made the playoffs only one time prior to now seven years and have received only one playoff sport for the reason that begin of the 2000 season. 

Given their begin to the season, in addition to a fairly favorable schedule down the stretch within the second half of the season, this is able to be aa bitterly disappointing outcome. 

Particularly when the coach didn’t appear to know the circumstances and the stakes.
