Angry Ron Rivera Video Goes Viral On Thursday Night

Washington Commanders head coach Ron Rivera.

A video of an angry Ron Rivera went viral on Thursday night. 

Rivera had plenty to be happy about following the Commanders' 12-7 win over the Bears of Chicago on Thursday night. 

However, after the game Rivera was furious with a question surrounding Washington Commanders owner Dan Snyder and the team's quarterback, Carson Wentz. 

Rivera's passionate rant includes a few expletives before he storms off the podium to re-join his team. You can find the video here

You rarely, if ever, see a head coach this upset after a win. But it's been a stressful week for Rivera and the Commanders. 

The Commanders are in the basement of the NFC East. Earlier in the week, a reporter asked Rivera why his team is so separated from the rest of the division right now and Rivera replied: "Quarterback."

It was a clear mistake on his part and he apologized for it later in the week ahead of Thursday Night Football. 

"Carson and I had a nice conversation, so I think we're ready to roll," Rivera said, via ESPN.com.

Rivera now appears to be going overboard for his quarterback, which is obviously better than the alternative.
