If the regular season ended right now, the Washington Commanders and Atlanta Falcons would be left out of the big party, currently sitting in the number 8 and number 9 spots in the NFC. Also, the Falcons are half a game back from the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in the NFC South. Washington is coming into this game off an easy win over the Texans, while the Falcons are crazy happy after a very close game against the Bears.
The Falcons definitely have an average offensive side, ranking 16th in yards per play, but have a very disappointing defense, which ranks them 29th in opponent yards per play. The Commanders are the complete opposite, coming in at 13th in opponent yards per play but ranked 30th in offensive yards gained per play.
The Commanders’ biggest trait, and a huge part of their success, is their third down defense. They currently rank third in the league in opponent third down conversion rate, however, that’s a strong point for the Falcons as well, who come in 12th in third down conversion rate.
During their last three outings, Washington has run the ball on 56.94% of their players, which is ranked second highest in the league. Sticking to what has worked for them can cause issues against Atlanta, whose biggest trait is stopping the run, they come in 11th place in opponent yards per carry.
The Falcons defense really does suffer when they get the ball thrown, however, the Commanders only rank 26th in yards per pass attempt. This Week 12 matchup is a close one and will definitely be a nail biter till the end. Both teams want to get better and have bigger playoff chances, but the Falcons will come out on top this time and will have better playoff chances after this game.
