Five takeaways from the Washington Redskins loss to the New York Giants

“This was a total team debacle.” – Jay Gruden, last night I couldn’t have put it better myself. The Washington Redskins got pounded by the New York Giants 45-14 at home Thursday night. There really weren’t any positives to take away from this one. A team that was just a handful of plays from being 3-0 now finds itself 1-3 and very banged up. It’s well within the realm...

Short week is long on meaning for Giants, Redskins

WASHINGTON (AP) The New York Giants and Washington Redskins dragged their sore bodies out of bed this week knowing that the next game would be only four days after the previous one. Both teams also know that their respective 1-2 starts won't cut it if the NFC East-leading Philadelphia Eagles are going to keep coming from behind to win every game. So never mind the fact that no one...

New York Giants talking a whole heap of trash about Houston Texans

You have to hand it to the New York Giants. For an 0-2 team that’s in last place in arguably the worst division in football, they’ve certainly got a lot of spunk in them.

New York Giants hope for Jason Pierre-Paul’s return to prominence

Last season, the New York Giants’ pass rush was not the lethal, imposing unit it has become known to be over the last decade-plus. Osi Umenyiora was gone to Atlanta, Mathias Kiwanuka was hot and cold, Justin Tuck had some big games but was mostly mediocre over the course of the entire season and Jason Pierre-Paul was a shell of his former self.

Does Mathias Kiwanuka have a gripe about New York Giants’ pay cut?

Mathias Kiwanuka was a member of two Super Bowl championships with the New York Giants, since being drafted by Big Blue with the 32nd pick in the 2006 NFL Draft.
