Main Storylines to Watch
Is TE Kyle Pitts finally getting used right? The Falcons spent a top-five pick on TE Kyle Pitts yet he has not been heavily used over in 2023. No one will ever argue that Pitts has talent, but the Falcons and Pitts have never seemed to find their groove together. In Week 5, Pitts earned 11 targets and converted them into seven receptions for 87 yards. Pitts had good weeks in the past and followed them up with dud weeks. Can Pitts be a consistent threat he was drafted to be?
Will the Commanders reestablish the run against the Falcons? The Commanders went down early in Week 5 and were forced to pass the majority of the game in an attempt to catch up. The Commanders had 29 total rushing yards in Week 5. The Commanders will hope to establish a more balanced offensive approach and not play from behind all game in Week 6.
