The NFC’s Road to the Super Bowl appears likely to go through Philadelphia. The Eagles are 8-0 with wins over Minnesota and Dallas, giving this team a two-game lead on every other team in the conference. They are heavy favorites against the Washington Commanders on Monday Night Football, as no one expects them to lose at home given they are unbeaten and have had more rest than the Commanders prior to this game.
The unbeaten Philadelphia Eagles will look to maintain their two-game lead in the NFC East when they face the Washington Commanders on Monday Night Football. These teams will face off on Monday, November 14, 2022, at 8:15 p.m. ET on ESPN from Lincoln Financial Field in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.
NFL Week 10 Betting Odds
Washington Commanders +11
Philadelphia Eagles -11
Money Line: Commanders +400, Eagles -525
There has been a little movement on both the side and the total ahead of this game. Philadelphia was initially a 10.5-point favorite by the NFL betting odds, but the Eagles are now up to an 11-point favorite. Meanwhile, the total has dropped from 44.5 points to 43.5 points.
The Washington Commanders have won three out of their last four games. They came very close to winning four straight tilts to move back over .500 on the season, but they blew a 10-point fourth quarter lead against the Minnesota Vikings last Sunday. Taylor Heinicke threw an interception at an inopportune time, allowing the Vikes to pick up a 20-17 win.
Despite last week’s mistake, Heinicke has been a better option under center than Carson Wentz. Heinicke is completing 63% of his passes for 629 yards (6.8 YPA) with five touchdowns and three interceptions while being sacked just six times in three games. Meanwhile, Wentz completed just 62.1% of his passes for 1,489 yards (6.4 YPA) with 10 touchdowns and six interceptions while being sacked 23 times in six games.
Of course, Washington doesn’t have much of an offense. Antonio Gibson and Brian Robinson Jr. are combining to average just 3.5 YPC as the top two running backs on the team, and Terry McLaurin is the only deep threat on the roster, averaging 16.0 YPR.
Washington’s defense is heavily reliant on its defensive line. The Commanders spent four straight first-round picks on defensive linemen, yet they won’t have Chase Young this week due to injury. Daron Payne and Jonathan Allen have combined for 10 sacks in the middle of the defensive line.
Jalen Hurts is having a fantastic third season with Philadelphia. Hurts is completing 68.2% of his passes for 2,042 yards (8.5 YPA) with 12 touchdowns and two interceptions, and he is averaging 3.7 YPC as a runner with six touchdowns. His play has helped make Philadelphia the best first half team in the league by a mile, and it has allowed Miles Sanders to thrive in this backfield.
The decision to trade for A.J. Brown took this offense to another level. Brown has proven to be an elite receiver with 43 receptions for 718 yards and six touchdowns. That has helped tight end Dallas Goedert and DeVonta Smith improve their games too, and those are the only three players to watch in the passing game.
Philadelphia has a very good defense. The Eagles rank in the top four in scoring defense (16.9 PPG) and total defense (299.0 YPG). The secondary is elite with Darius Slay, James Bradberry, and C.J. Gardner-Johnson making things happen, and this defensive line is very good too despite the loss of Derek Barnett and Jordan Davis.
Commanders at Eagles Free Pick
It’s tempting to take Washington and the points here. However, Philadelphia is likely to jump on the Commanders early and not look back. Heinicke won’t be able to erase the deficit, leading to the Eagles covering the number.
