Ron Rivera on going for two

Washington coach Ron Rivera gambled and lost by going for two points at the end of Sunday’s game. I thought he made the right decision. Others, of course, disagree. After the game, here is how Rivera explained his decision:

“I told them in the locker room, I said guys, I play to win. I told you guys that’s a part of my philosophy, the only way to learn to win is to play to win, and that’s what I want those guys to understand, that’s the mentality. Some of those fourth downs, I went for it because I believe that, again, that’s the mentality, we have to do certain things to win football games, and if taking a gamble is part of it, that’s what I’m doing.”
