Things in Washington have been disastrous, continually. As the Washington Commanders enter the 2022 season, little has changed. This team is a mess, again, To be fair, it’s not all the fault of the team, considering their starting running back Brian Robinson is out of action (gunshot wound). However, this team has far more problems than that. Multiple injuries all over the field, including pass rusher Chase Young.
This is a big year for the Jacksonville Jaguars, Peterson at the wheel and a healthy offense heading into Sunday’s opener. Lawrence lost DJ Chark to free agency (Detroit Lions), but the Jags responded by signing Christian Kirk. Evan Ingram also makes his Jaguars; debut.
The Jacksonville running game also gets a lot better, with Travis Etienne Jr. making his regular-season debut after missing his rookie year with an injured foot. He will inject a lot of production into this offense, and the former first-rounder could be the missing ingredient.
Commanders vs. Jaguars Game Prediction:
With Carson Wentz on his third team in as many seasons and with inconsistencies at each stop, I’m just not confident in him as a viable starter at this point. On the other side, I’m expecting the Jaguars to come out energized and motivated with Doug Pederson, who presents a massive upgrade at coach, especially for Trevor Lawrence and that offense.
Prediction: Commanders 17 , Jaguars 23
