The 6-5 Washington Commanders are on a roll. They beat the Houston Texans quite convincingly and come into the Week 12 match-up with the Atlanta Falcons having won five of their last six. The Falcons eked out a narrow 27-24 victory over the Chicago Bears in their match-up last week. The win moved them to 5-6 on the season.

The game will be played at Fed Ex Field – kickoff at 1:00 p.m. EDT – and can be watched on FOX.

The Falcons will be without tight end Kyle Pitts, who was placed on injured reserve this week after suffering a knee injury against the Bears in Week 11. He is not expected to return until at least Week 17.

Will Chase Young make his return? He was close last week, but not quite game ready. His 2022 debut could come at any time.

Washington’s 5-1 record in their last 6 games is the best record in the NFL.

Head-To-Head

The two teams have met each other 27 times, with the Washington Redskins Commanders winning 16 games and the Atlanta Falcons winning 10 games. They have also tied once.

Washington were victorious in their last meeting, but the Falcons won the four before that.

The Commanders last bout with the Falcons – as the Washington Football Team – was a 34-30 victory in 2021. Taylor Heinicke hit J.D. McKissic with a 30-yard touchdown pass with under a minute to play in the game. Heinicke finished the day 23 of 33 for 290 yards with three touchdowns and no interceptions.

Matt Ryan was the losing quarterback for Atlanta, though he had four touchdown passes on a 25 of 42 for 283 yard day.
