atlanta falcons 38 vs washington commanders 14
The Falcons head to Washington to play the Commanders as both teams come off big wins.
Even with a record of 5-6, the Falcons playoff hopes are alive and well as they sit just one game away from the Bucs in the NFC South. Breaking a two game losing streak, the Falcons proved their offense could keep pace with the bears, who have put up at least 24 points in their last 4 games behind the emerging Justin Fields. Marcus Mariota has passed expectations so far, and sits with an average passer rating of 90.7 on the season.
Maybe if the Commanders were in a different division, but now that the NFC East has gone from the worst to the best division in the NFL, a 6-5 record just won’t cut it. The Commanders are on a 2 game win streak, which included a shocking upset of the then undefeated Eagles. After losing 4 of their first 5 games, the commanders have turned things around and won 5 of their last 6 games. Qb Taylor Heinicke seems to have been the spark the Commanders needed as they look to continue winning at home.
