The Washington Football Team lost to the Baltimore Ravens 31-17, and fell to 1-3 for the season. They are somehow still tied for 1st place with the Dallas Cowboys.

Ron Rivera was surprised with an entire section of cardboard cutouts that was dedicated to him. It featured coaches, players, and family members who have impacted his life and support his battle with cancer. He got emotional when he saw a cutout of his late brother who dies from pancreatic cancer in 2015.

Rivera was up and down with his health today, and said he was encouraged to hydrate throughout the game. He was asked if there are people in his life that could convince him to step away from the team if needed, and he said there are and he would listen to them.

Dwayne Haskins Jr. didn't turn the ball over today after a 4 turnover game last week. He played a safe game today, but Rivera still wants to see better situational football awareness from him. He went for it on 4th and goal at the 13 to test Haskins, and was disappointed he didn't throw it to the end zone to give his guys a chance to score. His QB will learn from this week's tape.

Dwayne Haskins Jr. played better this week, but he's not satisfied with his performance. He took what the defense gave him, but that limited his ability to take shots down the field. Haskins went over 300 yards today, but was limited to short passes throughout the day.

Antonio Gibson had a big day today, says he is learning every week as he transitions to being an NFL RB. One thing he knows he can do better is getting upfield sooner, and not trying to make things happen in the backfield. As a former receiver, he's used to making moves downfield, but knows he needs to get north and get yards.
