Washington Commanders NFL Betting

The NFC East proved to be a beast over the course of the 2022-23 NFL betting season. The Philadelphia Eagles, Dallas Cowboys, New York Giants, and Washington Commanders all at one point found themselves in the thick of the NFC playoff chase. Unfortunately for Ron Rivera’s squad, it proved to be the black sheep and just missed out on punching a ticket to the second season. Playing to that week 13 tie with the GMEN ultimately came back to bite them. Even so, the team’s 8-8-1 overall record snapped a string of five straight losing seasons and afforded those that hit the over of their 7.5-game season wins total a ticket cash at the online sportsbook after disposing of Big D in the season finale. Two years remain on Ron Rivera’s contract to remain head coach of the franchise. Unless upper management affords him a viable QB1 moving forward, it doesn’t look like he’ll be resigned. Hopefully Sam Howell proves to be that dude!

Washington Commanders 2022 Season Recap

The opening season win against the Jacksonville Jaguars pretty much described the Commandos 2022-23 campaign. They busted out to a commanding 14-3 second quarter lead, but quickly saw it go up in flames after the Jags rattled off 19 straight points to take a 22-14 lead into the fourth. Shockingly, Carson Wentz came up with a pair of touchdown passes to lead the team to the comeback win and front door cover. Things took a dramatic turn for the worse immediately after with Washington going on to lose each of its next four games. Wentz broke his finger in week 6’s win at Chicago to break the losing streak. That opened the door for Taylor Heinicke to lead the team on a furious comeback that saved the season. The Commanders would go on to win six of their next seven games with the lone defeat coming at home to Minnesota in a game it allowed the Vikings to rattle off 13 straight points to log the 20-17 road win.

The team would bounce back with three straight wins before settling for a tie against the Giants in the first of the division rival’s two scheduled meetings. Then it dropped a 20-12 decision in the rematch. That loss was the beginning of a three-game losing streak that was capped off with a 24-10 home loss to the Cleveland Browns which signaled the end of Washington controlling its own playoff destiny. With absolutely nothing to gain in the finale, Rivera decided to take the training wheels off Howell and see what he can do. The kid went out and threw for 169 yards and a 1:1 TD/INT ratio while racking up another 35 yards and touchdown on the ground. He utilized Terry McLaurin and Jahan Dotson just the way he was supposed to with the duo combining for 146 yards and a tuddy.

The Commanders offense looks to be in great shape moving forward; provided Howell morphs into the franchise quarterback the team so desperately needs. RB Brian Robinson Jr. was a load for the opposition to contend with combining for 850 scrimmage yards and 3 TD in only 12 played games and nine starts. Dotson was a revelation and proved to be a perfect complement for McLaurin. Curtis Samuel also strutted his stuff in his first injury-free season. Pass protection did however prove to be a problem area for an offensive line that allowed 48 sacks. Only the Giants, Titans, Bears, Rams, Colts, and Broncos served up more! The defense ranked out No. 3 overall and No. 7 in points allowed all the while being a pest against both the pass (No. 4) and run (No. 11). This team is playoff bound if Howell takes to the NFL quickly!

2023 Offseason

I’m not sure Rivera is the man for the job any longer. The guy was unaware that his team controlled its playoff destiny as stated after the Week 17 home loss to the Browns. He also made the unwise choice of going back to Carson Wentz for that matchup even though it was Heinicke that put a charge back into the team. All Wentz did to show his appreciation was throw for 143 scoreless yards and three interceptions! If in fact Howell is the QB1 of the future, you’d think the front office will be dead set on shoring up the offensive line after it showed many holes over the course of this past season. With teams stocking up at the QB, WR, DT, and EDGE positions ahead of them, Washington would be best served using its 16th pick on hogs like Ohio State’s Paris Johnson, Northwestern’s Peter Skoronski, or Florida’s O’Cyrus Torrence should any be made available once they step to the podium.

Washington does not bring much cache to the TV networks and will get limited feature exposure in 2022. The Commanders are at the Chicago Bears in a Thursday night Prime Video game in week six. And then, in week ten comes an ESPN Monday Night Football game at the Philadelphia Eagles. There are two flex dates for the Commanders late in the season, but they are not likely to get bumped up to a feature game.

Founded in 1932 as the Boston Redskins, the franchise became the Washington Redskins in 1937. The Washington franchise has had great periods of glory and plenty of years of ineptitude.

Washington was a perennial contender and 2-time NFL champion from 1936 through 1945. Then, from 1946 through 1970, the Redskins never made the playoffs. But then head coach and general manager George Allen changed that with five playoff berths in six years from 1971 to 1976, including a 1972 NFC championship. The late Allen made the Pro Football Hall of Fame based largely on his work in Washington.

The man that made the Redskins into Super Bowl champions was another Hall of Fame coach, Joe Gibbs. From 1982 through 1991, the Redskins won three Super Bowl titles with one other Super Bowl appearance.

Since Danny Boy Snyder took ownership of the franchise in 1999, Washington has posted just six playoff appearances. Their last four postseason bids were wild card losses. Washington hasn’t been close to being a bona fide Super Bowl contender during his reign of error.

In 2020 Snyder dropped the team nickname “Redskins” in a desperate sacrifice on the altar of political correctness after allegations of sexual harassment being a systemic issue in his organization. Only a putrid NFC East Division allowed Washington to slip into the 2020 playoffs.

Subsequently, Snyder has been accused of cheating his fellow NFL owners out of their cut of FedEx Field gate receipts. With all of the trouble that Snyder has caused the league, one would think he would be a candidate for expulsion. Yet he is not, which leads to plenty of speculation about why that is.

The Redskins changed their name to the Commanders in 2022.
