The Washington Commanders and Atlanta Falcons will face off in Week 6 of the 2023 NFL season. They will play one another on Sunday, October 15th at Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta, Georgia. The Commanders are coming off a tough 40-20 loss to the Chicago Bears. On the other hand, the Falcons are coming off a narrow 21-19 win over the Houston Texans.
Can the Commanders Bounce Back?
The Commanders are listed as underdogs against the Falcons. This is a bit surprising, given that the Commanders have played better football on the road than at home this season. The Commanders have also played well against the spread on the road.
On the other hand, the Falcons have a good home-field advantage. Yet, they have not played well at home this season. The Falcons have also been inconsistent on offense. Meanwhile, they have scored 20 or more points in three games, but 14 points or less in two games.
Commanders Look to Come Back
The Commanders are coming off a tough loss to the Bear. However, they have shown that they can bounce back from losses this season. The Commanders beat the Denver Broncos 35-33 after losing to the Detroit Lions in Week 1.
Falcons Want to Continue Winning Streak
The Falcons are looking to continue their winning streak and improve to 4-2. A win against the Commanders would give the Falcons their best start to a season since 2016.
Commanders’ offense vs. Falcons’ Defense
The Commanders’ offense has been inconsistent this season, but they have the potential to be a very good offense. The Commanders are led by Washington’s quarterback Sam Howell, who is a rookie. Howell has shown flashes of brilliance, but he has also made some rookie mistakes. The Falcons’ defense has been one of the best defenses in the NFL so far this season. In the end, the Falcons are led by linebacker Rashaan Evans and safety Erik Harris.
Falcons’ offense vs. Commanders’ defense
The Falcons’ offense has been inconsistent this season, but they have the potential to be a very good offense. The Falcons are led by quarterback Desmond Ridder, who is a second-year player. Ridder has shown flashes of brilliance, but he has also made some mistakes. The Commanders’ defense has been one of the worst defenses in the NFL so far this season. Furthermore, the Commanders are led by defensive end Montez Sweat and linebacker Cole Holcomb.
Matchup to Watch
The Commanders’ offense will be looking to attack the Falcons’ defense through the air. The Commanders have a good group of wide receivers, led by Terry McLaurin and Jahan Dotson. The Falcons’ defense has been good at stopping the run, but they have struggled to stop the pass. The Falcons will need to find a way to pressure Howell and force him into making mistakes.
Prediction for Commanders vs Falcons
I predict that the Falcons will beat the Commanderrs by a score of 24-21. In the end, the Commanders have played some good football on the road, but we think they will fall short this week. Although they will be a good matchup for the Falcons’ defense, they will need to be strong on offense. All in all, the Falcons are going to look to continue their winning streak this week at home.
