The Atlanta Falcons travel to face the Washington Commanders in Week 12 of the NFL season. Kickoff is set for 1:00 p.m. ET on Sunday, November 27 from FedEx Field. DraftKings Sportsbook point spread has the Commanders as a 4-point favorite and the point total is 42.

The Falcons outlasted Justin Fields and the Falcons last week in a 27-24 win thanks to a clutch 53-yard field goal from Younghoe Koo. Marcus Mariota both ran and threw for a touchdown as Atlanta delivered the Bears its fourth straight loss while helping snap their own two-game losing streak. Atlanta now sits just one game behind the Bucs in the AFC South standings.

The Commanders have won back-to-back games and are moving forward with Taylor Heinicke as the starter for the remainder of the season. The fifth-year signal-caller played mistake-free football in their win over the Texans last week, but it was the defense that stole the show. Washington limited Houston to just a field goal all afternoon while bottling up promising rookie running back Dameon Pierce for just eight rushing yards on 10 carries. Their defense could get a major boost with star defensive end Chase Young activated from IR, though his official game status remains unclear for Sunday.
