Packers vs Commanders Week 7 Game Info
Week 7 of the 2022 NFL season includes a showdown between the Green Bay Packers and Washington Commanders. The Packers have been stuck in a rut lately, now losing back-to-back games following an embarrassing 27-10 loss to the New York Jets in Week 6.
Meanwhile, the Commanders snapped a four-game losing skid with a 12-7 win over the Chicago Bears last Thursday. Rookie running back Brian Robinson Jr. had an important performance in his NFL debut, racking up 60 rushing yards and a touchdown on 17 carries.

Packers vs Commanders Prediction & Pick
The Packers may have had struggles this season, but I'd be shocked if they don't get back on track against the Commanders this week. Even including last week's win, Washington hasn't looked good at all this year, being held to 17 or fewer points in its last four games — including three instances of 12 or fewer points.
Another thing going against the Commanders is that they must start Taylor Heinicke with Carson Wentz sidelined with a finger injury. Heinicke faced the Packers last season and was sacked four times while throwing an interception in the 24-10 loss for Washington. Needless to say, that performance doesn't exactly inspire confidence.
It's tough imagining the Packers losing three straight games, so give me a Green Bay win this Sunday.
Final Score Prediction: Packers: 23 | Commanders: 13

Packers vs Commanders Best Bet
The Packers' offense looks like a mess while the Commanders' offensive unit won't magically get better with Heinicke under center. This game should be the complete opposite of a shootout, following the trend of both teams hitting the under this season.
Until either offense shows consistent signs of life, I'm backing the total hitting under 41.5 points in this matchup.
Bet: Under 41.5 Points (-110)
