NFL Power Rankings Week 15 2022, Washington Commanders VS Giants
Washington Commanders Form
The Washington Commanders are 7-5 for the season and their latest match against the Giants finished 20-20, leaving them 6-3 across their past 10 games and 2-3 in the last five at home.
The home offense seems to have found another level in performance of late. While the Commanders’ season average stands at 19.5 points, the offensive unit has put 22.2 points on board in the last five matches alone. Surrendering 19.7 points per game leaves the Commanders’ defense around the middle of the pack compared to the rest of the league’s defensive units.
The Commanders began the regular season backed to go far in the playoff, and having gone 7-5 from 13 games so far, they’re on course to reach this target. The aim now for the home side is to at least maintain or improve on their sixth seed in the NFC Conference.
New York Giants Form
The New York Giants head to the FedEx Field on the back of a 22-48 defeat to the Philadelphia Eagles last week, leaving them 5-4 in their past ten games and 3-2 in the last seven on the road.
The Giants continue to put up decent numbers in offense, scoring 20.8 points in their last five matches. Considering their season average is 20.5 points, this suggests the offensive unit remains as reliable as ever. A below-average defense isn’t what any traveling team wants to hear, but that’s how it is for the Giants. The visitors have allowed 23.1 points per game this year.
2021 was a year of doom and gloom for the Giants. A 4-13 record left the away 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 7-5 start this time around, they’re on target to do just that.
