Commanders offense stays turnover-free

Impossible, you say?

On the contrary, the Washington Commanders have miraculously had two games this season without a single turnover. They've alternated good weeks with weeks of committing multiple possession transgressions, so finding the right balance is of critical importance.

If this season's pattern holds true, quarterback Sam Howell and the offense should limit any mistakes in a pivotal road matchup and play mistake-free football at the Atlanta Falcons. One only has to look at the statistics so far to see that.

  • Week 1: Total Turnovers = 3
  • Week 2: Total Turnovers = 0
  • Week 3: Total Turnovers = 5
  • Week 4: Total Turnovers = 0
  • Week 5: Total Turnovers = 2

Through the ups and downs of the first five games, Howell has shown he can play smart football. However, the signal-caller now needs to prove he can do it consistently week in and week out.

If the young quarterback can limit any miscues against the Falcons, it will likely put the Commanders in a position to steal an ever-important win on the road.

Bold prediction

The Commanders' offense looks like a well-oiled machine versus Atlanta. Howell runs Eric Bieniemy's scheme to perfection and records his third career game without a turnover.
