NFC Notes: Sam Howell, Ron Rivera, DeVonta Smith, Commanders, Cowboys, Eagles


The Commanders were able to score late in Sunday’s game against the Eagles, which set up an opportunity to go for two after their touchdown and a win. However, HC Ron Rivera opted to kick the extra point and Washington ultimately lost in overtime. 

“Those guys, they were gassed. They really were. It was a long-ass drive, they were hurrying, they were hustling. I really thought we had the chance, and that’s too bad,” Rivera said of the decision to kick instead of go for two, via Pro Football Talk
