Bold predictions for the Carolina Panthers as they go in search of their fifth win of the campaign against the New York Giants in Week 11.
Get-right games are often the trickiest to overcome. That's exactly what the Washington Commanders are facing this weekend when they come up against the New York Giants in Week 11.
While the Commanders aren't exactly pushing up trees this season, things are worse in the Big Apple. Brian Daboll's going through some significant complications without star quarterback Daniel Jones in his second season as head coach, with the Giants depicted as the heavy underdogs among sportsbooks to get their campaign on track at FedEx Field.
Fans have seen countless times - even this season - how the Commanders fare with the odds stacked in their favor. They need to show a level of professionalism and not play down to the opposition, which should be enough to gain success heading into two daunting contests before the bye week.
Here are three bold Commanders' predictions for Week 11.
Commanders defense gains four sacks
It's been a period of adjustment for the Washington Commanders defensive front over the last fortnight. The team opted to trade the defensive end tandem of Chase Young and Montez Sweat before the deadline, which has had obvious implications for generating the necessary pressure on opposing quarterbacks.
This weekend is a good chance to shift the narrative. The New York Giants offensive line is going through complications due to injury and poor performance, so the Commanders must take advantage of this uncertainty in pursuit of making life extremely difficult for inexperienced quarterback Tommy DeVito.
Achieving four sacks might not seem like much. But it would be a huge step forward as the Commanders move on without Young and Sweat.
