Five Washington Commanders’ Must-See Games For The 2022 Season

The NFL schedule has been released, which means it’s time for Washington Commanders fans to start thinking about betting on their team.

The Commanders are coming off a disappointing season that saw them lose four of their last five games to finish the year 7-10 and miss the playoffs.

However, this season has all the makings of a bounce-back year. The Commanders have been gifted with the league’s easiest schedule, have added some much-needed depth in the draft, and have a new quarterback in Carson Wentz, who has a lot to prove.

Here’s a peek at five of the Commanders’ futures odds and their most interesting matchups this season.

Retail sports betting is available at five Maryland casinos while the state continues to wait for mobile betting apps.

Washington Commanders’ Must-See Games

Week 4: 10/2 – Commanders At Cowboys, 1 p.m. ET

Last December, the bitter rival Dallas Cowboys slapped the Commanders with one of the most embarrassing losses in their history on Sunday Night Football. The 56-14 destruction will undoubtedly still be on the minds of the players and coaches, and Washington will be pulling out all the stops for redemption. This game should be a litmus test of where the Commanders stand in the division this year.

Week 7: 10/23 – Packers At Commanders, 1 p.m. ET

It’s always a treat when a quarterback of Aaron Rodgers’ caliber comes to town, but it’s extra fun if you’re a Commanders fan. Rodgers is 0-3 at FedEx Field during the regular season, and Washington will look to continue that trend in what will likely be an important mid-season matchup. The Green Bay Packers did defeat the Commanders 24-10 at Lambeau Field last year, even though Washington didn’t punt the football once in the game.

Week 8: 10/30 – Commanders At Colts, 4:25 p.m. ET

Wentz plays three games this season against his former teams, and you can bet he’s already circled this one on the calendar. The Indianapolis Colts shelled out a couple of high draft picks for Wentz just a year ago, then promptly dropped him like a bag of footballs after he failed to reach the postseason in his first year with the team. He’ll be facing long-time Falcon Matt Ryan, who the Colts recently acquired as his replacement.

Week 9: 11/6 – Vikings At Commanders, 1 p.m. ET

Kirk Cousins will return to FedEx Field for the first time since 2017, and the Commanders’ fans will undoubtedly have a few things to say to him. After leaving Washington and signing a monster contract with the Minnesota Vikings, Cousins has gone on to win just one playoff game in four years. The two teams last squared off in Minnesota in 2019, with Cousins completing 23 of 26 passes and getting the 19-9 win.

Week 10: 11/14 – Commanders At Eagles, 8:15 p.m. ET

In Week 10, Wentz will head to the home of the team that drafted him and will face a hostile crowd that will remind him how Eagles fans feel about him. After an excellent rookie season with the Philadelphia Eagles, the wheels came off for Wentz, and he quickly became an object of scorn for the Philly faithful. Aside from the subplot, this could turn out to be a critical game for both teams as they head down the final stretch.
