Last weekend, Ron Rivera—also known as Riverboat Ron for his willingness to gamble on big plays—was remarkably unaware of the stakes for his Washington Commanders in their game against the Browns. Following the loss, Rivera was apparently unaware that the result meant Washington was eliminated from playoff contention.

But indeed, Washington joins a long list of teams with nothing to play for except draft position and memories heading into the final week of the season.
