THE TEAM NEWS

NEW YORK GIANTS

  • New York Giants finally ended their long wait for a win as they put nine consecutive defeats behind them to overcome Miami and there was a welcome return to form for their star player.
  • Running back Saquon Barkley crossed the goal line for two touchdowns on the ground having not scored a rushing touchdown since Week 7 and he also went over 100 rushing yards for the first time since Week 2 in a much improved display.
  • The Giants rolled with veteran quarterback Eli Manning in the absence of Daniel Jones but the rookie is hoping to make his return from an ankle injury although there is also a chance that the Giants may also opt to shut him down for the rest of the season.

WASHINGTON REDSKINS

  • Washington put in a valiant effort against Philadelphia but fell short as the Redskins suffered back-to-back losses and they now have a battle on their hands to avoid last place in the NFC East after New York Giants picked up a victory to draw level with them at 3-11.
  • That spot could be decided in this game against the Giants with the winner likely to avoid bottom spot in the division and the Redskins will be confident of picking up the win after a good showing against the Eagles despite surrendering the lead with just 32 seconds remaining.
  • Running back Adrian Peterson scored for the third game in succession as he provided a timely reminder of what he is capable of and although the Redskins put in a good offensive display, their defense is light on talent and they lost cornerback Jimmy Moreland to a foot injury last week.

THE PREDICTION

The outcome of this game could very well determine which team finishes bottom of the NFC East with New York Giants travelling to Washington Redskins with both currently possessing 3-11 records. The Redskins were almost victorious over Philadelphia last week but went behind late on while the Giants finally ended their losing streak at nine matches. Both teams are likely to air the ball out this week but it is the Redskins that should come away with the win and avoid finishing in last place in the division.
