How could the Washington Commanders fare over the next four games after ending their concerning losing streak at the Atlanta Falcons?
Everyone breathed in a big sigh of relief after the Washington Commanders rolled up their sleeves and got back into the win column in Week 6. It wasn't perfect at the Atlanta Falcons, but getting the job done was far more important than a good performance that didn't come with a triumph attached.
This is a step in the right direction, but no more than that. The Commanders must build on this positive momentum over a winnable series of games heading into the midseason point, which would put them in a strong position before embarking on a daunting stretch to conclude the campaign.
What comes next has obvious consequences attached. Any regression or a complete drop-off will lead to landmark changes across the board, but a few surprises here and there might see Ron Rivera's men enter postseason consideration in an NFC conference not exactly littered with world-beaters.
With this in mind, we took a look at how the Commanders might fare over their next four games following a 3-3 start in 2023.
Commanders at NY Giants - Week 7
Another divisional contest awaits the Washington Commanders this weekend when they travel to the New York Giants. This is a game where everyone within the organization should fancy their chances, with the G-Men going through some turmoil currently and could be without quarterback Daniel Jones once again.
Jones is turnover-prone, there's no getting away from that. But the Commanders have had difficulty containing the dual threat in recent years, so all the better if he's unable to participate.
Prediction: Win (4-3)
The Giants did have Saquon Barkley back versus the Buffalo Bills, which is a significant threat for the Commanders to overcome. But they should be high enough in confidence to get the victory.
