Commanders need physical approach vs. Davis Allen

He put enough on film against the Baltimore Ravens for the Washington Commanders to be worried about Davis Allen. The fifth-round pick in the 2023 NFL Draft opened his scoring account in the pros with this touchdown at M&T Bank Stadium.

The brute force catch and run showed off the power 6-foot-6, 245-pound Allen brings to bear. He's a load to tackle in the open field, but the physical presence is also a force as a blocker for the Rams' increasingly power-based ground attack.

What the Commanders will need is to be physical with Allen at the line of scrimmage. It shouldn't be a problem with Casey Toohill and rookies Andre Jones Jr. and K.J. Henry on the edges of the defensive front. Both can put their pass-rush responsibilities to one side to knock him off course.

Keeping the hidden gems in Matthew Stafford's supporting cast quiet will help Commanders' quarterback Sam Howell and the offense keep pace. Provided Ron Rivera and offensive coordinator Eric Bieniemy have a plan for two rookies on the Rams' underrated defense.
