Ron Rivera’s Controversial Decision: The Commanders’ Overtime Dilemma

By Score More In Sunday's game against the Eagles, Washington Commanders head coach Ron Rivera made a decision that raised some eyebrows. After scoring a touchdown with no time left on the clock, Rivera chose to go for the tie instead of attempting a two-point conversion. While Washington did receive the ball first in overtime, they ultimately couldn't secure the win. Rivera later offered an explanation for his choice.

They hurried, they were hustling," Rivera explained after the game. He decided to trust his team's ability to go for the win in overtime when they would presumably be more well-rested. The Commanders we...

By Score More * Damar Hamlin has little left to prove to Bills coach Sean McDermott as he seeks to resume his football career after a life-threatening incident during a game in Cincinnati in January. “From my non-medical perspective, I believe he's met all the criteria in that regard,” McDermott stated on Thursday. “There's been a sufficient enough sample where you can see he has performed well and emerged from it healthy."

Additionally, the coach was further encouraged by Hamlin's performance in Buffalo's preseason-opening victory over Indianapolis last weekend. Hamlin participated in three tackles, one of whi...
