We're several days past the Washington Commanders' 1-0 start and now fully turn our attention to the hope we see them go 2-0 this weekend.

In Week 2, it's the Denver Broncos up next.

Washington had to hang on against the Arizona Cardinals last weekend, so let's hope they go out and put forth a stronger effort, overall, against Sean Payton and company.

Before they hit the field, though, we have a few questions we're hoping to see answered.

1. Will Benjamin St-Juste be able to hang with Broncos wide receivers?

In Week 1, one of the weak links on this Commanders team was undoubtedly starting cornerback Benjamin St-Juste. In the win, St-Juste earned one of the team's lowest Pro Football Focus grades at just 59.5 overall. He allowed four receptions on four targets on the afternoon.

Denver may have some injuries at wide receiver, but they are close to having their top two back at full strength. Courtland Sutton will be out there, of course. Jerry Jeudy could also be back from injury as well.

The Broncos have to bounce back from their Week 1 loss, and Sean Payton certainly won't hold back from making necessary changes. They'll run the ball, sure, but both Sutton and Jeudy have to be a big part of the game plan. As it stands, I don't have a lot of faith in St-Juste to hang with those two if they're healthy.
