Which Washington Commanders news stories are hitting the headlines as preparations continue for their Week 10 game at the Seattle Seahawks?
Week 10 is officially underway after the Carolina Panthers battled it out with the Chicago Bears last night. For the Washington Commanders, they are one step closer to taking the field once again for a crunch game at the Seattle Seahawks - one that comes with pretty significant ramifications attached regarding their aspirations down the stretch.
It's a tough game, but the Commanders aren't without a chance despite being 6.5-point underdogs with most sportsbooks. Until then, the stories causing debate include Sam Howell's excitement, Kamren Curl's evolving leadership, K.J. Henry's bad fortune, and Eric Bieniemy on spreading wealth.
Let's delve into each topic in more detail.
Commanders DE K.J. Henry's bad fortune
After an egregious call denied K.J. Henry his first NFL sack in Week 9 at the New England Patriots, it came as no surprise to see the league not fine him for his supposed misdemeanor. No apology, though, which is in keeping with the distinct lack of accountability from the higher-ups.
The call received widespread disapproval from players, coaches, and analysts alike. Jack Del Rio stated in his press availability that he hoped the rookie wouldn't get fined - which proved to be the case - and the message remains the same for the Clemson product in terms of approach.
This did at least prove that Henry is capable of generating pressure when his number gets called. Something that could result in further opportunities as the campaign progresses.
And hopefully, Henry isn't the victim of further asinine officiating when the time comes for another potential sack.
