NFL Power Rankings Week 13 2022, New York Giants VS Washington Commanders
New York Giants Form
The New York Giants fell to back-to-back defeats last week when the Dallas Cowboys beat them 28-20. The hosts are now 6-4 in their past 10 games overall and 3-2 in the last five at home.
The New York Giants have scored 20.5 points per game this season, which is pretty average compared to the other NFL offenses. On the other side of the ball, the defense has been relatively average in the league recently. The hosts have given up 23.8 points in the previous five outings, which is more or less on par with the 21.1 points they’ve allowed per game over the course of the regular season.
2021 was a year of doom and gloom for the New York Giants. A 4-13 record left the home team fourth in the NFC East and out of the playoffs. However, they entered this season billed as an early postseason threat, and judging by their 7-4 start this time around, they’re on target to do just that.
Washington Commanders Form
The Washington Commanders have grabbed an impressive six wins from their seven most recent matchups. The away side’s most recent outing ended in a 19-13 triumph over the Atlanta Falcons, which extended their winning streak to three games.
The Washington Commanders bring an offense that has struggled to click into gear this season, putting up just 19.4 points per game. However, there has been no letup on the defensive side of the ball. The visitors boast one of the stingiest defenses in the entire country, allowing just 19.7 points per game for this season, and have remained formidable in the past five games, having only given up 16.0 points on average.
The Washington Commanders began the regular season backed to go far in the playoff, and having gone 7-5 from 12 games so far, they’re on course to reach this target. The aim now for the away team is to at least maintain or improve on their seventh seed in the NFC Conference.
