Philadelphia Eagles DE Brandon Graham (55) hits Washington Commanders QB Taylor Heinicke (4) and is flagged for unnecessary roughness late in the fourth quarter at Lincoln Financial Field, Monday, Nov. 14, 2022.

Ron Rivera and Washington are making a habit of shocking undefeated teams.

For the second time in three seasons, Rivera took a Washington team with a losing record on the road to hand an undefeated team its first loss of the season.

The Commanders, who entered the game with a 4-5 record, went to Philadelphia and handed the Eagles their first loss following an 8-0 start.

That 32-21 victory Monday night came two years after Rivera lead a 4-7 Washington team to a 23-17 victory at 11-0 Pittsburgh.
