With the NFL playoffs fast approaching, many teams and their fans are weighing up their shot at making the postseason. This is the case for both teams in Commanders vs. Giants 12/18/22, where a win could make the difference in a season that has been full of highs and lows for both.
Commanders vs. Giants 12/18/22 Preview Games and History
There are few rivalries in football with as much history as Commanders vs. Giants. The two sides first played against one another all the way back in 1932, making it the NFC East’s oldest rivalry.
Since the two sides have had some of football’s most epic clashes, especially in the 1930s, 40s, and 80s when the teams fought it out for conference and division titles. Multiple battles for the Super Bowl in the 1980s, when few other teams could match the quality and consistency of the Commanders and Giants, arguably mark the rivalry’s high point. 5 Super Bowls were split between the 2 teams that decade.
Tensions in Commanders vs. Giants clashes were further intensified in 2010 when John Mara – the owner of the Giants – spearheaded a penal wage cap on the Commanders (at the time called the Redskins). Accusations of Mara’s abuse of the power he held as head of a special NFL commission on the issue flared up into ever-increasing heat between the two teams.

Commanders vs. Giants 12/18/22 NFL Betting Tips: The Season So Far
The postseason looks very much on the cards for Washington, who have done a really impressive job of turning things around after losing four of their first five games this year. Their performances soon flipped, though, as the Giants went on an impressive stream of winning six games out of seven.
Their tough fixture list as the season comes to a close means that their turnaround of form is at risk of being made short-lived, making the Commanders vs. Giants 12/18/22 a critical game.
Running back Brian Robinson Jr. has done an amazing job of not just recovering from being shot in the leg twice during an attempted robbery but also coming back to contribute meaningfully to his team’s success on the pitch.
Anything less than a win in Commanders vs. Giants 12/18/22 and playoff place will disappoint most fans.
Whilst the Giants haven’t seen such drastic swings in form, their overall performances this season have roughly matched the Commanders despite starting the season with significantly lower expectations.
Some Giants fans with higher standards haven’t seen the season so far as an overachievement with an inevitable end date but a brief moment of finally playing at the expected standard.
Whatever hopes people might have for the level the Giants should revert to, it does look like the quality is slowly starting to cool off, and if they can’t pull things together soon then Commanders vs. Giants, much less the playoffs, may be a tough ask.
