Got outgained by quite a bit though, and Washington turned the ball over themselves a couple times. I don't think the Washington games matter for either team, by the way. I'm just pointing the hole in your logicOne simple answer.
Washington converted 12 of 21 third downs against what had been a dominant defense all season. The Commanders ran 81 plays and held the ball for 40:24 of the 60 minutes. Philadelphia turned the ball over four times, one more than its total from the first eight games.
They still pulled up to a 21-23 score early in the 4th - but aWash FG and a fumble at their own 1 yd line in the end zone gave Washington the last TD.
I think if we are comparing performances, then why not address their defense giving up 40 to Cowboys near the end of the year? Seems a lot more relevant given when it happened
Could go down the rabbit hole.
Entering divisional weekend, the line for this game probably would have been around a Pick Em. Now it's 2.5. I think 49ers getting value after overreaction to Divisional results
Obviously no one knows what will happen on Sunday, but my guess is 49ers win. They have more edges IMO and I think they can control the clock in this game
