THE TEAM NEWS

NEW YORK GIANTS

  • On the back of a poor season last time out, the New York Giants started this new campaign in similar fashion as they were frustratingly beaten by a Denver Broncos team that they would have believed they could beat in week 1.
  • The Giants struggled against a stout defense and with star RB Saquon Barkley only attempting ten rushes, it is clear that they will need to hand him more touches if they are to get off the mark in this NFC East clash.

WASHINGTON FOOTBALL TEAM

  • Washington Football Team were architects of their own downfall as they suffered a disappointing loss to Los Angeles Chargers in their season opener but they will feel they can right those wrongs here.
  • Washington made some crucial errors in the narrow loss but they showed that they can be a solid team on both sides of the ball this season, although they will have to deal with the loss of QB Ryan Fitzpatrick to a hip subluxation so Taylor Heinicke will line-up under center.

THE PREDICTION

New York Giants have won the past five matchups with Washington Football Team but that record could come under threat here. The Giants were underwhelming in their season opener with Denver Broncos while Washington also came out second best, although they produced a much better performance. Their downfall came about because of some pivotal errors which ultimately cost them the victory but they look a better team than the Giants and the home team can get off the mark for the year in this contest.
