12. team. 58. . 2-3. . Washington Commanders

With just nine sacks and the league’s second-worst scoring defense, Washington won’t stay in playoff contention for long if it can’t get this fixed. The bad news is that Patrick Mahomes and the Kansas City Chiefs are next on the schedule.

. 2-3. . Seattle Seahawks. 11. team. 36

Seattle has already fallen three games behind in the strong NFC West, and will now be without star quarterback Russell Wilson for multiple weeks. The slow start along with Wilson’s injury could lead to a rare playoff-less season for the Seahawks.

2-3. . Minnesota Vikings. 10. team. 60.

The Vikings are a tough team to predict. They’ve been inconsistent so far this season but have lost some close games to good opponents. Despite defeating the Lions last week, they needed a last-second field goal. This week’s game against the Panthers is huge.

. Chicago Bears. 9. team. 57. . 3-2

A big game for the Bears this week as they host the division-leading Packers, a team they’ve lost four straight to. While Chicago’s defense remains up there with the best in the league, the offense needs to find some more consistency for the Bears to remain in contention. Chicago is averaging just 16.8 points per game in the opening five weeks. Not every game will be low-scoring. Against the Packers, the Bears are going to need to find something on offense.
