Ron Rivera Battling Cancer Had To Get An IV At Halftime So Dwayne Haskins Addressed The Team

The Washington Redskins head coach Ron Rivera was making his coaching debut for the franchise today. Ron Rivera is also battling cancer. At halftime he had to get an IV and was unsure if he would be continuing coaching the game. But during his time getting an IV the Washington Football Team’s quarterback Dwayne Haskins stood up and gave a rallying speech to his team that was down 17-7.

The Washington Football team rallied from down 17-7 against the Philadelphia Eagles to win the game 27-17.

Look, in my NFL quarterback power rankings I ranked Dwayne Haskins week 1 number 32. This will surely change. I was dead wrong. Haskins showed true leadership and the ability to come back and win this game. A truly inspiring story.
