The Washington Commanders are coming off a season in which they nearly qualified for the NFC playoffs. Even after coming so close to a rare season above .500, massive changes were in order in the offseason, as Eric Bieniemy was brought in from the Kansas City Chiefs to be the assistant head coach and offensive coordinator. This might be the most unique quarterback room in the league, with Sam Howell set to land the starting job in Week 1. Howell will be backed up by Jacoby Brissett, a floor-raiser of a quarterback, but one who can’t win your team many games. With the team finally rid of longtime owner Dan Snyder, can the Commanders overachieve this season? Let’s take a look at some of the odds and best bets to be made on the Washington Commanders in 2023.

Washington Commanders 2022 NFL season recap

The 2022 season was a rollercoaster for the Commanders. Their defense was unsurprisingly very strong once again, keeping Washington in the majority of its games, even as the Commanders suffered from continuously poor quarterback play. Taylor Heinicke showed some flashes throughout the season, but those moments were largely overshadowed by his inconsistency and propensity to turn to the ball over (21 interceptions over the last 2 seasons). Washington still nearly qualified for the playoffs in a dismal NFC, finishing with a record of 8-8-1 and falling just short of its second playoff appearance in 3 seasons.

Washington Commanders 2023 NFL season predictions

As the odds indicate, the Commanders are certainly not expected to be a playoff team. Washington is currently listed at +310 to make the playoffs, which has them trailing most of the NFC, including the Rams, Bears, Panthers, Giants and Packers. It’s hard to disagree with the oddsmakers on this one, especially once you take a look at their schedule. Let’s get into our predictions for the Washington Commanders this season.

Best bet: Washington Commanders under 6.5 wins (-125)

In all honesty, I want to be higher on the Commanders this year than I am. This could be the feel-good story in the NFL this season, especially with the addition by subtraction of finally getting rid of Dan Snyder. The team can finally move on and potentially feel good about the direction things are headed. However, much like I’ve said for the other NFC East teams, this is an absolutely brutal schedule. Drawing the AFC East is an absolute buzzsaw through any hopes that this team had of contending for a playoff berth, plus they’ll face the NFC West out of division. Washington’s ceiling to me seems like 6 wins this season, so even though I love the Bieniemy hire and think he’ll work wonders down the road, it’s hard to forecast anything but an under this fall.

Washington Commanders season record prediction: 5-12

The Commanders’ schedule features a number of surefire losses, including a combined 10 games against playoff teams from a season ago. It’s a tall task for any team, but factor in the largely unproven Sam Howell at quarterback and the challenge just gets more difficult. I could see Washington winning anywhere from 4-6 games by the time January rolls around, so I split the difference and marked them down for a 5-12 campaign. They’ll be in a fair amount of close games, but I don’t see the Commanders winning most of those contests.
