The Washington Commanders are staying on the road on Sunday to face off against the Houston Texans at 1 p.m. ET Nov. 20 at NRG Stadium. The Commanders might be strutting in after a win while Houston might be stumbling in from a defeat.
Washington had a touchdown and alter to spare in a 32-21 victory over the Philadelphia Eagles this past Monday. Nobody had a standout game offensively for Washington, but they got scores from DE Casey Toohill, RB Antonio Gibson, and RB Brian Robinson Jr..
Special teams collected 14 points for Washington. K Joey Slye delivered an ideal 4-for-4 game.
Meanwhile, Houston got here up short against the Latest York Giants last week, falling 24-16. Just like the Commanders, the Texans did not have any clear offensive standouts, but QB Davis Mills led the best way with one touchdown. Mills ended up with a passer rating of 135.40.
Many of the squad’s points got here courtesy of special teams, which contributed ten. K Ka’imi Fairbairn delivered an ideal 3-for-3 game.
This next contest is anticipated to be close, with Washington going off at only a 3-point favorite. Those playing the percentages have seen things go backwards and forwards with the Commanders, who’re 5-4-1 against the spread.
Washington’s win brought them as much as 5-5 while Houston’s loss pulled them right down to 1-7-1. Two stats to control: Washington ranks third within the league with regards to rushing touchdowns allowed, with only five on the season. Less enviably, Houston is stumbling into the matchup with the fewest rushing touchdowns within the NFL, having accrued only three on the season. We’ll see if the Commanders’ defense can keep Houston’s running backs out of the tip zone.
