The Washington Commanders opened as 2 point underdogs against the Detroit Lions. That line has dropped a little and sits at 1 1/2 points. The Over/Under also moved, going from 46 1/2 to 49 1/2. A lot of people hit that low over for two teams that combined to score 63 points in Week 1.

Washington opened up their 2022-23 season with a win against the Jacksonville Jaguars. Rookie WR scored two TDs, including the game winner on his way to being voted the Pepsi Rookie of the Week. The offense will look to pick up where they left off last week with 4 TDs scoring drives. They are also looking to eliminate the 3 turnovers that forced a come from behind drive to secure the win.

Washington’s defense will have their hands full against Detroit’s running game led by D’Andre Swift who had 175 yards from coverage last week against the Philadelphia Eagles. Washington has a few players on defense who dealt with injuries, but will play today. Jonathan Allen (groin) and Cole Holcomb(quad) will both start.
