Main Storylines to Watch
Can the Giants finally get healthy again on offense? 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?
Are the Commanders a wildcard threat? The Commanders started the season 2-0 and then lost their next three games. If the Commanders win in Week 7 they will be one game over .500 and 1-1 in their own division. This is a very important game for the Commanders if they want to be taken seriously as a playoff contender. No one is expecting this team to compete fro the division title, but a win here makes it an attainable goal. A loss in this game will prove the Commanders do not have what it takes to be a consistent enough team to make a playoff push in the deep NFC conference.
