Which Washington Commanders news stories are hitting the headlines as excitement continues to build for Week 7 at the New York Giants?

Preparations are well underway for what is another crucial game for the Washington Commanders. They have newfound positivity following their triumph at the Atlanta Falcons, which should serve them well heading to the Big Apple in Week 7 versus the New York Giants for a highly important divisional encounter.

It'll be tough, but the Commanders have a legitimate shot of piling more misery on the G-Men looking at the two organizations right now. Until then, the stories causing debate include confidence in Jahan Dotson, Jamison Crowder's honor, Ron Rivera's focal point, and the possibility of trading Chase Young before the deadline.

Let's delve into each topic in more detail.

Commanders KR Jamison Crowder's award

NFL games are all about moments. And there's no doubt Jamison Crowder's huge punt return at the Atlanta Falcons completely changed the tide of the contest.

The veteran demonstrated his customary burst in open space and almost ended a long drought of kick or punt return touchdowns for the Washington Commanders. Although Crowder was unable to find the end-zone, he did get recognition for his exceptional contribution with the NFC's Special Teams Player of the Week award.

This was a well-deserved distinction and should give Crowder plenty of confidence moving forward. Many wondered what the player had left after he made his triumphant return to Washington, but there's plenty of life in those legs yet based on his performance levels so far.
