Which Washington Commanders news stories are hitting the headlines after their heartbreaking loss at the Seattle Seahawks in Week 10?

The Washington Commanders fought with everything they had and led for long periods, but Jack Del Rio's defensive unit once again fluffed their lines en route to a gut-wrenching loss at the Seattle Seahawks. Moral victories at this stage are moot - this defeat represents a significant dent in the team's hopes of making the wildcard spots in the first season under Josh Harris' ownership group.

In the wake of such a demoralizing reverse, the stories causing debate include Emmanuel Forbes' frustration, Ron Rivera's assessment, Sam Howell's accountability, and the Commanders' opening as heavy favorites in Week 11 against the New York Giants.

Let's delve into each topic in more detail.

Commanders vs. NY Giants odds for Week 11

The Washington Commanders have yet to win a divisional game this season. According to the opening betting lines, that could change when they take the field in Week 11 against the struggling New York Giants on home soil.

According to the latest odds from FanDuel Sportsbook, the Commanders are 9.5-point favorites to get one over on the Giants at FedEx Field.

  • Washington -9.5 points: -115 (bet $115 to win $100)
  • New York +9.5 points: -105 (bet $105 to win $100)

Anyone wishing to bet the Commanders' money line can get them with odds of -500 attached (bet $500 to win $100). After a torrid run of bad luck and poor form this season, the Giants are heavy underdogs despite their win over Washington earlier in the campaign at +385 (bet $100 to win $385).

FanDuel Sportsbook has set the over/under at 36.5 points.

  • Over 36.5 points: -115
  • Under 36.5 points: -105
