Is this what redemption looks like for Mark Sanchez?

Taking his first NFL snaps since Jan 1, 2017, the former Jets QB came in for the Redskins Monday night against the Eagles after Colt McCoy left the game with a season-ending leg injury in the second quarter.

And it didn't take long for Sanchez to inadvertently remind the football world of the most infamous play of his career.

The Giants will likely face Mark Sanchez -- yes, that Mark Sanchez -- when they take on the Washington Redskins next week.

The former Jets quarterback replaced Colt McCoy in Washington's 28-13 loss to the Philadelphia Eagles on Monday night after McCoy suffered a season-ending broken fibula in the first half.

Sanchez, who hadn't appeared in a game since 2016, was 13 for 21 with 100 yards and one interception in McCoy's absence. The only touchdown drive he led was on his first play, when he handed the ball off to Adrian Peterson for a 90-yard touchdown rush.

Whether the Giants will admit it or not, the Cowboys gave them something to be thankful for this Thanksgiving.

As SNY's Ralph Vacchiano explained before Dallas' 31-23 win over the Alex Smith-less Redskins Thursday, Big Blue had no choice but to be rooting for the 'Boys as part of New York's lofty goal of making it to the playoffs.

At 3-7 heading into Sunday's matchup with the Eagles, the Giants need to extend their winning streak to three and then some to keep their dreams of an NFC East title alive.

But the Cowboys gave them a welcome assist to go with their turkey and stuffing

Mark Sanchez is back in the NFL. 

The former Jets quarterback was signed by the Washington Redskins on Monday to serve as Colt McCoy's backup, per Field Yates of ESPN. 

The Redskins were in need of another quarterback after Alex Smith suffered a season-ending injury, breaking his tibia and fibia, which required immediate surgery, during Sunday's 23-21 loss to the Texans.

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. -- This would be a different story if the Giants had drafted Sam Darnold. Or even if they had drafted Josh Rosen or Josh Allen. Because if they had drafted a quarterback second overall back in April this would absolutely be the time to look to the future and bench Eli Manning.

But not when the next in line is Kyle Lauletta.

And not now.

THE GAME 

The Giants (1-6) vs. the Washington Redskins (4-2) at MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, New Jersey, on Sunday, Oct. 28, at 1 p.m. ET.

THE WEATHER

If this game had been played 24 hours earlier, it would've been in the thick of an ugly Nor'easter. Instead, it'll be just another gray, fall day with temperatures in the low 50s, moderate winds, lots of cloud cover and perhaps a little chance of some light rain later in the game.

"Hey you pieces of [s---] at @TSA next time you [a--h---s] feel the need to go thru my mother's ashes for no reason, make sure you close it back so her remains aren't spilled on all my clothes... the least you pieces of garbage can do is your [f---ing] job"

The Jets and Redskins will have joint practices from Aug. 12 to Aug. 14 ahead of their preseason game on Aug. 16, and Washington's defense seems to be ready to go after current Jet wide receiver Terrelle Pryor.

Redskins linebacker Zach Brown called out Pryor, who signed a one-year, $4.5 million deal with New York after one year with the Redskins, by saying other members of Washington's defense "have it out for him."

"That's going to be something right there," Brown said on "Inside the Locker Room" on Team 980, according to NBC Sports Washington's JP Finlay. "The boys are gonna have it out for him. We can put hands on him now ... [head coach] Jay [Gruden] ain't here to protect you anymore."

Francis, 27, recorded 18 combined tackles in six games with Washington last year, his second with the team and third since entering the league as an undrafted free agent in 2013.

The Redskins released him last Friday, and after staying in the NFC East by joining the Giants, took to Instagram to vent:

THE GAME

The Giants (2-13) vs. the Washington Redskins (7-8) at MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, New Jersey,, on Sunday, Dec. 31, at 1 p.m. ET.

THE WEATHER

As if anyone needed a reason to stay home, it'll be 19 degrees (that's the high) with 15 mph winds (that's not even the gusts), so it will feel much colder. It'll feel really cold when the wind starts whipping around what surely will be one of the emptiest stadiums the Giants have ever experienced. It'll be much warmer in your living room, trust me.

WHAT IT MEANS

For the sentimental folks, there's at least a chance that this will be Eli Manning's final start for the Giants -- though the hiring of Dave Gettleman as GM likely means Manning will at least be given the option for more next year. For the futurists, this game is all about the 2018 draft. If the Giants lose, they lock up the No. 2 pick and will be in perfect position to grab Manning's eventual replacement. For everyone else, as far as the Giants are concerned, it means nothing. Absolutely nothing.

Giants quarterback Eli Manning threw for 113 yards, was intercepted once and was sacked four times, while New York's defense allowed a late go-ahead touchdown to Kirk Cousins in a 20-10 loss to the Washington Redskins on Thursday at FedEx Field.

Manning completed 13 of 27 passes, the last of which was intercepted by Kendall Fuller, as the Giants lost for the fourth time in the last five games. The veteran quarterback, who entered the final drive with just 77 passing yards, has thrown for at least 100 yards in each week since Oct. 28, 2007.

The Giants gave up a tie-breaking 14-yard touchdown from Cousins to Josh Doctson in the left side of the end zone that gave Washington a 17-10 lead with 3:31 left. On the ensuing drive, the Giants went three-and-out, ending with a sack on fourth-and-3 from their own 32.

Giants linebacker Curtis Grant was carted off the field in the first quarter of Thursday's game against the Washington Redskins with a right knee injury.

Grant was caught in the bottom of a pile and had his leg rolled up on before referees blew the play dead. 

Players from both teams knelt on the field as team medical staff evaluated Grant before he was carted off. As he was helped onto the cart, players on both teams showed their respect by tapping him on the arm before he left the field. New York ruled him out for the remainder of the game.

Fellow linebacker Deontae Skinner left the game with a hamstring injury midway through the game, and the Giants were already playing without linebackers B.J. Goodson and Calvin Munson due to ankle and quad injuries, respectively.

The Giants will have four road games on the West Coast next season, traveling to face the Arizona Cardinals, San Francisco 49ers, Denver Broncos and Oakland Raiders. 

In addition to home and road games against their division rivals, New York will travel to face the Tampa Bay Buccaneers next year.

As much as the New York Giants wanted to clinch their first playoff berth since 2011 on the field in Philadelphia on Thursday, they know it doesn't really matter how they get in - just as long as they get in. And they can still get in four different ways this weekend, before they even have to think about playing their finale in Washington on Jan. 1.

The Giants' 21-20 victory over the Cincinnati Bengals Monday night completed a clean sweep for the NFC East this weekend. All four teams won close ballgames to keep the order in the division for at least another week. The NFC East is the only one of the NFL's eight divisions where all four clubs have winning records.

First place Dallas (8-1, 2-1 in the division) won their eighth straight game, a thrilling 35-30 victory over the Steelers in Pittsburgh. Rookie running back Ezekiel Elliott rushed for 114 yards with two touchdowns, including the game-winning 32-yard score with nine seconds remaining and had 95 receiving yards with a touchdown.

Richburg was called for an unsportsmanlike conduct penalty in the second quarter and again in the fourth quarter when he hit Redskins CB Josh Norman behind the play that negated a 24-yard gain.

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. -- Odell Beckham Jr. and Josh Norman turned their meeting last December into more of a pro wrestling match than a football game. So it's hard to believe they were really surprised when the officials warned them not to do it again.

Yet they both seemed shocked -- shocked! -- on Sunday to get stern, pregame warnings from referee John Hussey that they both better be on their best behavior. And as they may have seemed, the warnings obviously worked since, for the most part, the two were well-behaved during the Giants' 29-27 loss.

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. -- The much-anticipated Josh Norman-Odell Beckham Jr. rematch is still more than a week away, but the war of words has already begun.

Two of Beckham's teammates -- Victor Cruz and Janoris Jenkins -- took shots at Norman, the new Redskins cornerback, for not covering Pittsburgh Steelers receiver Antonio Brown in Washington's season-opening loss on Monday night. It seemed like a logical matchup -- Norman, one of the best corners in the league, against Brown, perhaps the league's best receiver.

"It's gonna be fun. He's a competitor," Norman said at his introductory press conference on Monday, according to ProFootballTalk's Josh Alper. "I'm gonna play. I'm gonna give everything I got just as well as he is. … Whatever happens that day, it will happen. I don't hold the future."

Norman signed a five-year, $75 million deal with Washington after the Carolina Panthers rescinded his franchise tag last week. Afterward, Beckham reacted by tweeting Kanye West lyrics:

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?

According to Ian Rapoport of NFL.com, Giants DC Perry Fewell will meet with the Washington Redskins regarding their head coaching vacancy.

Others who are scheduled to meet or have been interviewed already for the job (as per Josh Alper of PFT): Cowboys special teams coach Rich Bisaccia interviewed for the job on Friday, joining Panthers defensive coordinator Sean McDermott, Ravens offensive coordinator Jim Caldwell and Seahawks offensive coordinator Darrell Bevell on the list of candidates identified in Washington thus far.

With Kevin Gilbride gone, losing Fewell would actually sting the Giants at this point. Tom Coughlin is an offensive coach by trade, so his new OC would have to possess a very similar philosophy to his, but any defensive coordinator would receive more autonomy, and inherently run the defense with less influence from Tom. Those guys are harder to find. The Giants would also have to move fast to replace them, so losing both coordinators in the span of a week may not the best situation for the Giants.
