No hot water for showers at FedEx Field after Commanders' loss to Giants

Known for leaking pipes, poor playing surface conditions and collapsed railings, FedEx Field is firmly near the bottom on most rankings of NFL stadiums.

Add "no hot water" to the list of problems that have popped up at the home of Washington Commanders.

After the New York Giants defeated the Commanders 31-19 on Sunday, both the visiting and home locker rooms were without hot water for showers.

“We had an equipment failure in the main water heater that provides hot water to the field level locker rooms,” a Commanders spokesperson said in “We can’t resolve the matter without completely shutting off the water to the stadium, which is why it couldn’t be repaired in game.”

Commanders head coach Ron Rivera called the day "a low point" in his four-season tenure with the team. And that was before news about the malfunctioning showers became public.


The Commanders couldn't wash it all – the loss and the insults – away, either.
