Commanders at Seahawks - Week 10
Another road game for the Washington Commanders sees them make what appears to be a daunting trip to take on the Seattle Seahawks in Week 10. Pete Carroll's men are once again performing way above expectations and a recent splash in the trade market suggests that they fancy their chances of winning the NFC West and perhaps even making a deep postseason run for good measure.
The Seahawks shelled out decent draft compensation to secure the services of defensive lineman Leonard Williams. Of course, he is no stranger to the Commanders having recently played for the New York Giants, so he's one of many hurdles this team must counteract in pursuit of an unlikely triumph.
Quarterback Geno Smith is playing tremendous football once again. The Seahawks have an abundance of skill position players on offense that can do damage and Seattle's defense has been another bright spot en route to their 5-2 record through seven games.
Not only this, but the Commanders will need to shake things up in terms of how plays come into signal-caller Sam Howell at Lumen Field. This is one of the loudest and most intimidating environments anywhere in the league, so the cards are stacked against Washington in no uncertain terms.
Prediction: Loss (4-6)
Although the Commanders have played up to their opposition this season more often than not, it's hard to predict anything other than a loss given how these two teams have fared so far in 2023.
