2023 Commanders opponents

Previewing the Washington Commanders 2023 NFL Season Opponents

The Washington Commanders are gearing up for the 2023 NFL season, and fans are already buzzing with anticipation. Sure some of of the buzz is wether or not Dan Snyder will have sold the team by then, but hey buzz is buzz.

The 2023 NFL Draft is in the books – the Commanders have made their selections – and that means that the next event to look forward to in the off-season is the release of the 2023 schedule. It will be released some time in May. Exactly when, is more top secret than how they get the caramel in the Caramilk bar.

The Commanders DO already know who their opponents will be – it’s just a question of when they will meet each opponent.

Officials Take A Giant Dump On Washington’s Playoff Hopes

They say that no one play determines the outcome of a football game – and that’s probably true. But what about when multiple plays seemingly go against a team unfairly? For that certainly seemed to be the case for Washington on Sunday Night in their 20-12 loss to the New York Giants.

Did Washington play well?

Not particularly.

Did they play well enough to win?

That’s tough to say as well.

Not A Win, Not A Loss – Commanders And Giants Settle For Unsatisfying Tie

Bittersweet. That’s what any tie in the National Football League seems to be. It doesn’t feel like a win. It doesn’t feel like a loss. Players often have no idea how to feel about the result. Such was the case on Sunday for Washington Commander and New York Giant players and fans alike, after a 20-20 draw.

Both teams could have really used the win, as both are vying for the final Wild Card spot in this year’s playoff race.

Commanders Vs Giants: Head-To-Head, Odds And More

The 7-5 Washington Commanders are currently holding down the final Wild Card spot. In fact, if the playoffs were today, all four of the NFC East teams would make the playoffs. That makes this Week 13 match-up with the division rival New York Giants a big one for Washington, to say the least.

The 7-4 Giants sit just ahead of Washington in the division and in the Wild Card race. The Giants have had a ten day lay off after losing 28-20 to the Dallas Cowboys on Thanksgiving. This will be the Giants second of four consecutive games against NFC East teams – including (a strange) two in a row against the Commanders.

First Look: WFT Vs Giants – Head-To-Head, Odds, And More

The Washington Football Team (6-10) head in to their Week 18 match-up with nothing to play for but pride. The same goes for their opposition – NFC East division rival New York Giants (4-12). It’s been a disappointing season for both teams.

Washington is currently on a four game slide having lost to both the Eagles and the Cowboys twice. The Giants have lost five straight.

How will the last game of 2021 go?

Washington Given Second Chance; Heinicke Notches First Win

Did the Washington Football Team actually just catch a break? It doesn’t seem that often of late, that a critical bounce or call seemed to go Washington’s way. Yet last night, Washington got a favourable call, and rode it to their first win of the young season. The first win for Taylor Heinicke, in his NFL career.

Up And Down We Go

The fourth quarter of last night’s Thursday tilt between Washington and the New York Giants was an absolute roller coaster. The lead changed hands three times in the last five minutes of play. There was a game-winning field goal attempt as the clock was running dry. Then there was another game-winning field goal attempt when the clock had run dry.

Throwback Thursday: Riley Smith Beats Giants Single-Handedly

On this day in Washington Football history – September 16th, 1937 – Washington beat the New York Giants 13-3.

It was opening day for the 1937 season, and 24,500 fans lined Griffith Stadium for what was technically the first ever Washington Redskins game. The season before, the franchise was still in Boston and called the Boston Redskins.

Finally Back In Black Again

Sometimes life serves you lemons and there is no lemonade to be found.

An unforeseen life hiccup caused me to be offline for much longer than expected, my apologies.

Things have smoothed out now, and I look forward to trying to bring you some interesting Washington Football Team content in 2021.

As for Sunday, what do you even say?

It was bad, then it was good, and then it was bad again.

The Loser Papers – 2018 Edition V

Wow, this season is becoming fun, albeit a lot of work for the editors of TLP. Back to back divisional wins have been rare in recent history, and sacking Sheli Manning 7 times in a great defensive effort, seemingly even rarer. How great was it to see the sad sack QB pouting hit after hit?

Along with the stellar defensive play, the resurgence of Adrian Peterson made this the editors favorite game of the season. To celebrate, we bring our loyal readers a trifecta of NY newspaper articles. The first comes from the pages of The New York Daily News:
