Commanders @ Lions

Who will WIN this matchup?

Washington Commanders (1-0)

@ Detroit Lions (0-1)


Current odds:

Washington Commanders: (-110)

Detroit Lions: (-110)


The spread for the game is even.

COMMANDERS PLAYER TO WATCH: QB Carson Wentz. Playing on his third team in three years, he was 27 of 41 for 313 yards and threw four TD passes for the first time since 2017 when he played for the Eagles.

LIONS PLAYER TO WATCH: WR Amon-Ra St. Brown. If he catches at least eight passes for the eighth straight game, the second-year pro will join Antonio Brown and Michael Thomas as the three players in NFL history to pull off the feat.

Detroit’s D’Andre Swift against Washington’s defense. The third-year running back had career highs with 144 yards rushing and 175 yards of offense against Philadelphia. If the Commanders can slow down Swift, they will take away QB Jared Goff’s ability to set up play-action passes.

Lions have won five of six against Washington, including four in a row at home. Washington is 3-0 against Detroit in the playoffs, winning in 2000, 1992 and 1983.
