Why Bet The Commanders:
✅ The Washington Commanders have played a brutal schedule as of late, facing the Eagles and Cowboys in back to back games. They did not look particularly good in those games, but that has a lot to do with the strength of opponent they have seen in Weeks 3 and 4. This week, their schedule finally gets a bit more manageable, and the Commanders should be able to take advantage of it.
✅ Tennessee has one of the worst defenses in the NFL, which the Commanders should benefit from. The Titans rank 30th in the NFL in yards per play allowed, and are 26th in the NFL in yards allowed per game. While the Commanders have struggled offensively over the last couple of weeks, they will get back on track against a struggling Tennessee defense.
✅ In what should be a closer game this week, the Commanders should be able to have a more balanced offensive game plan. They have been forced into throwing the football early and often while trailing against the Eagles and Cowboys. Here, they will be able to slow things down and run the football a little more, and that variety will make them a little tougher to slow down.
The Tennessee Titans managed to hold onto an early lead to beat the Indianapolis Colts in Week 4 on the road. This week, the Titans go on the road for the second straight week, as they face a Commanders team that has been struggling as of late. Tennessee will hope for a second straight big game from Derrick Henry to get a win in Washington.
Henry rushed for 114 yards and a touchdown last week against the Colts, and helped them to salt the game away down the stretch. He had been struggling prior to that contest, and Henry’s ability to chew up yardage on the ground will be huge for the Titans again here.
The Washington Commanders lost their second straight game to a division opponent last week. They fell to the Dallas Cowboys in Week 4, after being beaten by the Philadelphia Eagles in Week 3. This week, the Commanders will be glad not to see another division foe, as they attempt to get back on the right track at home.
The ability of the Commanders to move the ball on the ground will be important in this contest. The Titans are one of the worst defenses in the NFL on a yards per play basis. And with the Commanders struggling to pass the ball consistently, running the football will help alleviate some of the pressure on Carson Wentz and the Washington aerial attack.
