    Main Storylines to Watch

    Can the Commanders’ offense bounce back after only scoring seven points in Week 7? The Commanders may have had their best game of the season in the Week 4 loss in Philadelphia to this Eagles team. The offense moved the ball consistently and gave them a chance to pull off the upset. The Commanders have struggled protecting QB Sam Howell all season and this Eagles defensive line seems to be hitting their stride as of late. If Howell can get rid of the ball quickly, this offense has proven it can move the ball on this Eagles team and can bounce back after last week’s dud performance on offense.

    Will the Eagles handle the Commanders better in the second matchup? The Eagles struggled to stop this Commanders’ offense in their first matchup in Week 4. The Eagles’ offense moved the ball well in Week 4 but has since been more turnover-prone. If the Eagles’ defense cannot halt the Washington offense, this Eagles’ offense and Jalen Hurts need to limit the turnovers in order to come away victorious.
