With a record of 5-6, the Atlanta Falcons rank second in the NFC South. This week, they’ll face an NFC East opponent in the Washington Commanders. Each of these teams bring a specific energy to the game. For the Falcons, it’s an offense that could be one of the best in the league. The only problem we see in Atlanta is how their defense has performed this season.

The Washington Commanders should be adding a few more pieces back into the line-up. There is a chance that defensive end Chase Young could take the field. If he does, the Commanders will have a much better chance to win this game. If he’s sidelined, they could be in a bit of trouble against Atlanta. Still, you can’t count the Commanders out too early.

The Atlanta Falcons could move to 6-6 with a win in week 12. If they do and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers lose, the Falcons would be at the top of the NFC South. It’s going to be a tough battle, but the Falcons definitely have the offense to pull it off.

This season, the Atlanta Falcons have an offense that averages 23.5 points per game. They rank 12th in the NFL in this category and have established themselves as an elite rushing team. On average, the Falcons are putting up 159.4 yards per game, ranking third in the NFL.

Where they often run into an issue is with their defense. Allowing an average of 24.9 points per game, they’re one of the worst teams in terms of points allowed. Still, the Commanders aren’t known for a potent offense, so keep that in mind.

The Washington Commanders, who are 6-5, are still sitting at the bottom of the NFC East. It’s unfortunate for them that their division is so competitive. However, it’s also worth noting that the Commanders have won their last two games. One of these wins was against an NFC East rival.

The Commanders handed the Eagles their first loss of the season. Beating them 32-21, Washington found a way to force four turnovers and earn the win. It was an impressive victory that they followed up with a 23-10 win over the Houston Texans.

Falcons vs. Commanders Predictions

The Washington Commanders are a good football team; there’s no doubt about that. However, they have been known to struggle against good rushing offenses. The Falcons have both Marcus Mariota and Cordarrelle Patterson. Due to this, the Falcons offense might shock the Commanders and get an early lead.

From there, the Falcons will rely on their offense to keep scoring. They’re coming off a big win over the Chicago Bears and can keep that energy up going forward. It also helps that they’re four-point underdogs, so if they lose by a field goal, they’ll still cover.

Final Score: 23-20 (Falcons)

EXTRA POINTS

1. Atlanta is 6-1 in their last seven games against Washington.

2. The total has gone under in eight of Washington's last ten games at home.

3. Atlanta is 5-1 against the spread in their last six games when playing on the road against Washington.

Best Bet: Falcons +4 (-110) and Over 41.5 (-115)

Atlanta Falcons vs. Washington Commanders Recap NOV 27TH 2022

Kendall Fuller intercepted a batted pass in the end zone with 1:03 left to preserve Washington's 19-13 victory over the Atlanta Falcons and continue the Commanders' playoff drive Sunday in Landover, Md.

With Atlanta threatening to take the lead at the Washington 4-yard line, Daron Payne batted a pass by Marcus Mariota at the line of scrimmage and Fuller came down with the fluttering ball just inside the goal line.

In a close-to-the-vest game played in a steady rain, Taylor Heinicke threw two touchdown passes and Brian Robinson Jr. ran for a career-high 105 yards on 18 carries as Washington (7-5) won for the sixth time in its last seven games.

The Commanders relied on their defense and a conservative game plan that included 37 rushes and 23 passes. The defense rose in the second half, limiting Atlanta to three points. Midway through the fourth quarter Montez Sweat wrecked another Atlanta possession with a sack.

Atlanta (5-7) was led by Mariota, who completed 15 of 25 passes for 174 yards and a touchdown. He also ran six times for 49 yards.

Tyler Allgeier carried 11 times for 54 yards and Cordarrelle Patterson added 11 rushes for 52 yards as the Falcons averaged 5.8 yards per attempt.

Mariota triggered the potential game-winning drive when he ducked under pressure from Payne and threw to open receiver Olamide Zaccheaus on a 45-yard play to the Washington 25.

After Fuller's interception, the Atlanta defense forced an apparent three-and-out. But Adetokunbo Ogundeji was flagged for running into punter Tress Way, ending Atlanta's hopes.

In the first half, both teams had a field goal and a touchdown for a 10-10 deadlock at the break.

Washington's touchdown came when Heinicke threw a short pass to Robinson, who powered through tacklers and avoided the sideline on a 14-yard play to give the Commanders a 7-3 lead.

The Falcons regained the edge in the second quarter with a 77-yard march finished off by a 4-yard touchdown pass from Mariota to MyCole Pruitt.

In the third quarter, Washington took the lead with a 60-yard drive that was all on the ground until Heinecke used a play-action fake and found John Bates alone in the end zone for a 16-yard touchdown pass.

After Joey Slye missed the extra point, Atlanta cut the deficit in half, 16-13, with a 48-yard field goal from Younghoe Koo.

Washington answered with 9:05 left as Slye made a 45-yard field goal for a 19-13 lead.
