One of Sunday, Nov 20 matchups scheduled in this NFL Week 11 will be Commanders vs Texans. The toughest moment of the season has arrived for the teams, as some of them already know that no matter what they do, they have no chance of going to the postseason.
The Commanders are hopeful after a big win over the Philadelphia Eagles, but they will have to keep that level until the end. Meanwhile, the Texans have an imperative need for the regular season to end as soon as possible, as they continue to be under a dark cloud and are unable to escape it.
Predictions and Betting Preview for the Washington Commanders vs Houston Texans NFL Week 11 Game on November 20, 2022
- Where: NRG Stadium, Houston, Texas
- When: Sunday, November 20, 2022, 1:00 PM E.T.
Betting on the Washington Commanders
The Philadelphia Eagles, the best team so far this season, were defeated by the Washington Commanders 32-21 in Week 10’s upset. With that victory, the team from the capital city erased the memory of its 20-17 defeat by the Minnesota Vikings a week earlier and increased its winning streak to five games out of 10 played.
The Commanders are in last place in the NFC East, but if they continue to collect wins over the next few weeks, they could take a spot in the postseason. They have focused on correcting some things defensively and so far that is paying off.
Betting on the Houston Texans
The Houston Texans‘ season has been a disaster and they have only one win in 9 games played. That win came just over a month ago against the Jacksonville Jaguars by a score of 6-13, which makes them the team with the fewest wins at the moment. This relegated them to the last place in the American Conference standings and also to the bottom of the AFC South.
They have four straight losses prior to this matchup, 38-20 to the Las Vegas Raiders, 17-10 to the Tennessee Titans, 29-17 to the Philadelphia Eagles and 24-16 to the New York Giants. At this point, it appears that the Texas franchise will be looking to be the worst team to secure the first draft pick in the upcoming tournament.
The Washington Commanders have two encouraging developments for this game: first, they will play against the weakest opponent of the year, and second, they can rely on defensive wing Chase Young, who will be back after making his knee injury recovery; although Young has been out of action for a year, his return could strengthen the team.
The Texans have lost both of their previous meetings with the capital team, and given the circumstances going into this game, the outcome is not anticipated to be in their favor.
Prediction: Washington Commanders win and Over.
