  • Ron Rivera
    American football player and coach

The Washington Football Team defeated the Seattle Seahawks 17-15 to pick up their first win on Monday Night Football since 2014. The win was Washington’s third straight, and the team now holds the NFC’s seventh and final playoff spot for the time being.

As you might expect, Washington coach Ron Rivera was fired up after the win. Cameras caught Rivera interacting with the crowd as he was leaving the field after the game. We won’t tell you what the coach said, but it’s not hard to tell.

Rivera wasn’t done. Once he got to the locker room and met with his team, he delivered another fiery speech, and his team was loving every second.

“Everything we need is in this room,” Rivera said. “Everybody in this room, we need.”

Rivera was correct; Washington did need everyone in the room. His team was down to its fourth center of the season and didn’t have a kicker for the entire second half, meaning other players had to step up.

Rookie defensive end Shaka Toney was among those who stepped up, as he recorded his first NFL sack and had another takedown of Russell Wilson as he left the pocket with nothing but green grass in front of him.

Washington looks to get to .500 next week with a trip to Las Vegas to play the Raiders.
