Giants-Redskins

The Giants came out on national television on Thursday night and put a sock in the mouths of all their detractors, outpacing the Washington Redskins from whistle to whistle. They refuse to be fodder for wisecracking talking heads and smarmy late night talk show hosts.

The Giants finally held on to a lead in the fourth quarter and actually won a football game. The collective feeling as the clock wound down was one of uneasiness. Although, they had more points than their opponent when the clock hit zero, it felt very much like it did the first two weeks. Except for one thing. They won.

"We won, so smile," head coach Tom Coughlin said after the Giants' 32-21 win over the Washington Redskins. "It wasn?t easy. Nobody said it was going to be."

For many reasons, the Giants and head coach Tom Coughlin do not want to sink to 0-3 to start the 2015 season. ?A slow start usually means no playoffs, and for the Giants, no playoffs for the fourth consecutive season will likely mean wholesale changes.

The Giants are need of a win and the Redskins have always been there to provide them with one. That is, until now. The two teams seem to be going in opposite directions. The Giants, at 0-2, have been unable to close out games, while the Redskins have pounded the opponents on both sides of the ball so far this season.

The Giants are cramming for their latest test, a game against the very physical Washington Redskins (1-1) on Thursday night. The Giants are 0-2 and probably should be at least 1-1, perhaps even 2-0, after squandering fourth-quarter leads in both game in historic fashion.

The Giants are considering the possibility of shutting down LB Jacquian Williams for the remainder of the season. Williams sustained a concussion in the Giants' Week 9 loss in Seattle and has not yet been cleared to return to full duty.

"We?ll see," said head coach Tom Coughlin when asked about shutting Williams. "It has been quite a process. He is really not ready to practice right now."

Normally, a Giants-Redskins game in Week 15 would be cause for excitement. This year, the teams are 4-9 and 3-10, respectively, and the game has no significance other than the loser comes out of the contest in last place in the NFC East.

The only other significance of this game is to fantasy players. But then again, neither team has been lighting up the scoreboard this season.

The Redskins thought they had their franchise QB in RGIII, only to have him get injured and then not play well enough to reclaim his job after his return. They now have three QBs, which in this business, means you have none. Colt McCoy is slated to start this Sunday at MetLife.

It's raining on the East Coast today, but the conditions at FedEx Field at gametime are as follows: Temps in mid-60's with 80 percent humidity and a 10?percentchance of precipitation. The field surface is never good down there to begin with, so expect the pitch to be a bit sloppy.

Here are my keys to a Giant victory down in Washington tonight:

Pick on the corners...?With DeAngelo Hall (Achilles) out for the year, the Redskins will rely on rookie Bashaud Breeland to cover either Rueben Randle or Preston Parker, since it appears their top CB, 6'1" David Amerson, will try to keep up with Victor Cruz. The Skins third CB, veteran Tracy Porter, is battling a hamstring injury. Giants' OC Ben McAdoo has to be salivating at these matchups. Now, here's the real question: can the Giants exploit them?

A sparse turnout here with two teams playing out the string in the first half at MetLife. The steady rain kept many away as well. The weather has certainly played a role in the quality - or lack of quality - play thus far.

Early in the second quarter, the Giants were mounting a drive into Washington territory. On 3rd-and-2 on the WAS 32, Eli Manning had Hakeem Nicks free for a first down, but his arm was hit and the ball sailed over Nicks' head. The Giants were forced to turn to PK Josh Brown to attempt a 50-yard FG in the rain.

Brown hooked the attempt wide left, snapping a team-record of 17 consecutive FGAs.

Today's game between the Redskins and the Giants will mark the 164th overall meeting between the franchises and the teams? 162nd regular season meeting. The series began in 1932 and the two have played twice a year during each regular season with the exception of the 1967 and 1969 seasons.

The Giants lead the overall series, 94-65-4, and the regular season series, 93-64-4. The Redskins and Giants have clashed twice in the postseason at New York. Washington won 28-0 in 1943 in the division playoffs and New York won 17-0 in the 1986 NFC Championship game.

Today's game features two of the NFL's top-five winningest active coaches. Redskins' head coach Mike Shanahan has 178 wins (incl. playoffs) and ranks second behind Bill Belichick (216). The Giants' Tom Coughlin is third with 169. Jeff Fisher (164) and Andy Reid (151) are the others.

The Giants? offense played well enough in even-numbered quarters to earn a 24-17 win Sunday night over the Redskins.

Two touchdowns in the second quarter and a touchdown and field goal in the fourth quarter made up for two inept looking quarters: the first and third.

Big Blue went three and out on both of its first quarter drives, while the third quarter featured two punts and Eli Manning?s 18th interception of the season.

Former Giants? center and Super Bowl champion Shaun O?Hara ? currently an analyst for NFL Network ? recently shared his thoughts on the how the NFC East teams graded out in this year?s draft.

He gave the Giants a ?B,? which is a solid assessment. The Giants addressed a need along the offensive line by drafting Justin Pugh from Syracuse and also selected some other talented players, like defensive tackle Johnathan Hankins from Ohio State and defensive end Damontre Moore from Florida State, who could have an immediate impact.

On Pugh, O?Hara said, ?I thought it was a great pick-up for the Giants. The reason why I say that is because Pugh represents versatility for them. He can play all the positions.

Don't go coronating RGIII just yet. Sure, he and and the Redskins held off the Giants last night to stay alive in the NFC East race, but they did so by only one point, escaping a potential season-ending loss in the process.

We're not saying the Redskins got lucky. But they did get some help from the Giants.

The Giants played out of their skin. They were not themselves. They were not the team that emasculated the Green Bay Packers with precision and might last week. They were a sloppy, slow rendition of the group that usually does not beat themselves.

from Jimmy Kempski of Blogging the bEast:

Redskins ball, 1 point lead, 3:51 left on the clock:

  • Griffin for 8.
  • Young for 4. First down.
  • Morris for 2. Giants burn their 2nd time out.
  • Skins? patented play action 10 yard slant to Garcon for 17. First down. Two minute warning.
  • Morris for 4. Giants call last time out.
  • Morris for 3.
  • Morris for 6. First down. Ballgame.
The Giants knew the run was coming, and they couldn?t stop it. ?That?s not the first time that has happened this season. ?In Week 1 against the Cowboys in a ?bleed the clock? scenario, DeMarco Murray ran for 1, 7, and 3 yards to seal the game, but the Giants were bailed out on a Jason Witten hold. ?They then converted a first down pass on 3rd and long to seal it. ?Then later in the season, in another obvious ?bleed the clock? scenario, the slow-footed Isaac Redman broke off a 28 yard run to put the Giants away.

From Jon Wagner, SNYGiants columnist

The new kids on the NFC East block regretted letting the veteran champs off the hook the last time, and they wouldn?t let it happen again.

Six weeks after two-time Super Bowl MVP Eli Manning edged the Washington Redskins (6-6) on a long, late touchdown pass that started moving the Redskins? season into a sputtering tailspin, a pair of emerging rookie stars helped Washington get revenge and eke out a 17-16 win over the New York Giants (7-5) at FedExField in Landover, Maryland on Monday night.

It was billed as a shootout. Instead, we got brawl. The Redskins and Giants played about as close a game as you could play for two teams with contrasting styles.

The scoreboard, unfortunately, reflected it accurately when the clock ran out: Redskins 17, Giants 16.

As they have done all too often in the past, the Giants (7-5) missed a golden opportunity to distance themselves from the rest of the division, losing a game they led at halftime for the first time in 27 games. Instead of being up two games on Dallas (6-6) and three on Washington (6-6), tonight they are only one game ahead of both with four games remaining.

Jared Kruger: Giants played their best defensive game last week against the Packers. RGIII showed the Giants what he is capable of in week 7. Something's gotta give. If the Giants continue to use the new 3 safety defensive strategy (which hinges on Kenny Phillips' status) they will be able to contain the long pass. The defensive line is a huge key to this game. They need to maintain gap control and it seemed they had a problem with RGIII in the pistol formations the first time around. Hopefully, they've solved that. Giants 28, Redskins 24

Sam Spiegelman: Tonight's match-up between New York and Washington should tell us a lot about both teams. Can RGIII outperform his fellow rookies, Russell Wilson and Andrew Luck, who both helped their team to critical wins, and keep the 'Skins in the Wildcard race? Or will Eli Manning and the Giants defense carry over the momentum from last week's trouncing of Green Bay? Expect both offenses to have success, with the game coming down to which defense can make a critical stop at the right moment. In that case, given the performance last week, I expect that defense to be New York's. Giants 35, Redskins 31

Kel Dansby: The Giants have had a tough time against this Redskins team the past two seasons and RGIII gave the defense nightmares during their last match up. With that said, the Giants will play with a sense of urgency and Eli Manning will exploit the secondary of the Redskins to keep this game competitive. The Giants fall short on a 4th quarter comeback attempt and make the NFC East race competitive again. Redskins 30, Giants 27

The Giants are currently 2 1/2 point-favorites over the Redskins tonight in Washington. The over/under is 51. Tempting plays for Giant fans who believe they have broken out of their offensive malaise. Redskins believers are also whetting their lips over their team being home dogs.

That 51 O/U looks to be low, but it's only gauged by the first meeting - a 27-23 Giant win. The way Washington has been scoring of late, the over looks good, but nothing is ever as easy as it looks.

The Giants will be more wary of the Redskins' offense this time around. Not only the ability of the rookie QB ?(Robert Griffin III) and RB (Alfred Morris) but the playcalling as well.

The Skins have been amping it up the past few weeks and Griffin has been taking more shots down the field. In the first meeting against the Giants, Griffin threw two TDs - both to veteran WR Santana Moss. Each occurred inside the 30 yard line.

The Giants, like everyone else, have been watching. ?Since coming off their Week 10 bye, Griffin has tossed eight touchdowns - four in each game. He is gaining confidence and seeing the field much better. He is running the triple option with great success and throwing with flawless accuracy to boot. Tom Coughlin was asked if his team, having faced Griffin already, will use what they've learned in their prior meeting to their advantage.

When you looked at the Giants' schedule after the bye, you immediately saw they were going up against some of the best QBs in the league the final six games.

They started off by bashing the Packers' Aaron Rodgers, who is considered by many to be the game's best. ?They still have ahead of them Atlanta's Matt Ryan and Baltimore's Joe Flacco, the golden boys of the 2008 NFL Draft who have developed into stars. Oh yeah, they have to face Drew Brees, too.

The one player that did not immediately stick out was Washington's Robert Griffin III. Maybe it's because he's a rookie and the Giants beat him in their first meeting.

New York Giants ?(7-4) AT Washington Redskins (5-6) (Monday, ESPN, 8:30 PM ET)

The Giants (7-4) lead the NFC East by two games over Dallas (5-6) and Washington (5-6) but the Redskins can close the gap when they host New York on Monday night.

The two teams met earlier this season in Week 7 with the Giants winning 27-23. In that game, New York wide receiver Victor Cruz caught the game-winning 77-yard touchdown pass from quarterback Eli Manning with 1:13 remaining in the fourth quarter. It marked the longest game-winning TD in the final two minutes of a game in franchise history.

Giants Have Two-Game Lead With Five to Go

The formula for the Giants to win the NFC East is simple the rest of the way: win four of the next five and they're in. They probably won't do that, and may not have to. The Cowboys and Redskins are both two games back with five to go, and they would both have to basically win all five the way to have a chance at the title.

That is why this game between the Giants and Redskins this week is so important. If the Giants win, they sweep the Redskins and put them three games back in the division with four games to go. The Redskins effectively fall four games back, because the Giants would have the tiebreaker over them. A victory also raises the Giants' division record to 3-2 with only the decimated Eagles left on their schedule.

If the Redskins beat the Giants, that all changes dramatically. They pull one game behind the Giants in the standings and would be 3-1 in the division, guaranteeing them no worse than a tie with New York. The Skins last four games are vs Baltimore, Cleveland, Philly and Dallas. If they beat the Giants and win only three of those games they are still only 9-7. May not be enough.

from SNYGiants special contributor Matthew Cohen

I've always felt that athletic quarterbacks had a place in the NFL and were hindered by the conservatism of NFL coaches. We've seen many athletic quarterbacks come into the NFL (Michael Vick, Donovan McNabb, Randall Cunningham, Vince Young, etc.) and, in my opinion, they were never properly utilized. How many times did we hear announcers repeat the dogma: he has to learn to be a pocket passer or he'll never succeed in the NFL. All of that running was ok if a pass play broke down but it was otherwise foolish and dangerous.

Let's just call it as it is: the Giants played a team they haven't beaten in awhile and beat them. Don't get caught up with the style points in this one, just chalk it up in the W column and move on. Dallas awaits. But there are some questions....

I said in my prediction, I said the Giants would win 41-24, and they very well could have. Eli Manning threw two careless picks that harkened back to his "what was he thinking" days of yesteryear. The Giants threw the ball 40 times but did not open up the top of the embattled and porous Washington secondary until the last drive.

I would like to hear what the offensive strategy was for yesterday. People have been asking me, but I can only shrug my shoulders. Washington plays shootouts. They score, you score, and so on. The Giants decided not to score until they absolutely had to.
