The Washington Commanders and New York Giants will face-off in an NFC East showdown.

The division title may not be in the books for the Commanders, but an NFC wild card race is certainly a possibility. That's why a win over the lowly Giants is absolutely critical for their season.

Commanders vs. Giants key players to watch

Washington Commanders

Curtis Samuel: The Commanders wide receiver has become one of their best offensive weapons this season, hauling in 27-of-31 targets for 285 yards and two touchdowns. Depth at the wide receiver position can cause bad matchups for a lot of teams, and that's exactly what Curtis Samuel gives Washington.

New York Giants

Wan'Dale Robinson: The Giants may have an emerging star in Wan'Dale Robinson. After missing the first two games, he has exploded the past four weeks, hauling in 22 receptions for 141 yards. He's not exactly a deep threat, but he's been a sure-handed targets for the Giants to target on third down. That's a huge addition that was much-needed for this offense.

Commanders vs. Giants prediction and pick

I just can't find any level of justification to bet on the New York Giants. They're dead last in the NFL in net yards per play at -2, and even when their defense is able to put on a good performance, their offense fails to perform.

Now, the worst offensive line in the league has to take on a stout Commanders' pass rush that's 11th in the league in sack percentage, taking down the opposing quarterback on 8.41% of their drop backs.

Washington has had issues on defense this season, but its pass rush has been its biggest strength and it should have no issue getting after the quarterback on Sunday.

Until the Giants prove me wrong, I'm going to continue to bet against them. They look like the worst team in the league.
