THE TEAM NEWS

WASHINGTON REDSKINS

  • Washington are now 0-3 after another defeat with the Chicago defense proving too much for the Redskins and QB Case Keenum to handle, who threw three INTs and also fumbled the ball twice.
  • Keenum could be in doubt for this game after missing Wednesday’s practice with a foot injury and he was spotted in a walking boot but if he does miss this game with the Giants, it is likely to be Dwayne Haskins Jr. who replaces him rather than Colt McCoy.
  • Redskins DL Jonathan Allen returned to boost his side against the Bears last week and will be a key player moving forward but he is likely to be limited at practice until he fully recovers from his knee injury.

NEW YORK GIANTS

  • New York Giants collected their first win of the season as QB Daniel Jones led his side to victory over Tampa on his NFL debut and he will hope to make it back-to-back wins on what will be his first start on home turf.
  • The Giants suffered a huge injury blow in their dramatic victory last week with star RB Saquon Barkley set to miss up to eight weeks of action with an ankle injury which will see back-up Wayne Gallman pick up the majority of the backfield carries.
  • Five players were missing at the Giants’ first practice of the week with LBs Alec Ogletree and Tae Davis among those sitting out and their availability appears to be in some doubt ahead of Sunday’s game.

THE PREDICTION

Washington struggled against the fearsome Chicago defense as they slipped to 0-3. They now head to New York to face the Giants who played their part in an enthralling game against Tampa Bay last week in which they came out on top. New Giants QB Daniel Jones will be starting his first NFL game on home turf and after producing a brilliant performance last week, he can guide his side to back-to-back wins.
