New York Giants (7-4) at Washington Redskins (5-6)
Since Tom Coughlin took over as Head Coach of the New York Giants before the 2004 season, the Giants have always been a much better 1st half of the season team than 2nd half of the season team. In the first 8 games of the season, they are 53-19 and in the 2nd half, they are 28-39. Not so coincidentally, Eli Manning’s play seems to dip in the 2nd half of the season as well, as he completes 57% of his passes for an average of 6.7 YPA and 89 touchdowns to 79 interceptions in the 2nd half, as opposed to 60% of his passes for an average of 7.4 YPA and 111 touchdowns to 61 interceptions in the first half.

Justin Tuck has a great deal of respect for Robert Griffin III, but thinks the Redskins offense is doomed if Griffin goes down.
As the NFL moves closer to college style offenses, some of the attributes call for quarterbacks to be a little more than just passers.
That also means they are exposed to big hits and could get knocked out of a game in a blink of an eye.
The Washington Redskins could be without linebacker London
Fletcher and offensive lineman Trent Williams when they take on the New York
Giants Monday night, but they are expected to have wide receiver Pierre Garcon
Fletcher has been a mainstay on the Redskins’ injury report
this season. While he’s been incredibly healthy over the years, as he hasn’t
missed a game...
Let the trash talking begin between the New York Giants and Washington Redskins who will play against each other on Monday night football.
This is a big game for both teams as the Giants will look to extend their lead as the first place team in the NFC East division and the Redskins will try to extend their push to the playoffs.
Giants wide receiver Victor Cruz told the media...
Here we go again. It hasn’t even been a full week since jeweler offered to refund money on sales to customers if Auburn was shutout by Alabama, and now we have a car salesman in Washington, DC offering a similar to deal to patrons if the Washington Redskins are able to shutout the New York [...]
