The New York Giants are hoping to regain the form they showed in the beginning of the season with a second consecutive win as they take on their fellow struggling NFC East team, the Washington Redskins.
Colt McCoy starter – Washington Redskins to start McCoy at quarterback if he is healthy
Robert Ayers out – New York Giants defensive end out for season with torn pectoral muscle
Rashad Jennings – Giants running back not expected to miss time with ankle injury
The New York Giants finally won a game after reeling in a seven-game losing streak as they defeated the Tennessee Titans, 36-7.
The defense exploded with eight sacks, and they allowed zero points as the Titans’ only touchdown came on a pick-six thrown by Eli Manning.
Running back Andre Williams shined for the Giants with 131 rushing yards and a touchdown on 24 carries after starter Rashad Jennings had a lighter workload due to an ankle injury.
Jennings is not listed on the Giants’ injury report, so he is expected to take back the starting job. Wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. continued to shine with 11 catches for 130 yards and a touchdown.
Meanwhile, the Redskins are still undecided on who their starting quarterback will be after an embarrassing 24-0 loss to the St. Louis Rams, which dropped their record to 3-10. Colt McCoy will be the starter if his neck heals, but Robert Griffin III may get another chance.
Running back Alfred Morris was held to six yards on eight carries, partially as a result of the running game being wiped out of the Redskins’ plan.
Both teams are out of the NFC East title race, but they will look to avoid the dreaded cellar. The Giants defense will be able to capitalize on a turnover-prone Redskins offense.
Prediction: Giants 27, Redskins 17
