The Washington Redskins still can make it to the playoffs if they keep rolling; they will face the NY Giants on Monday night at 8:20 PM ET, at Fedex Field.
The Giants beat the Skins in their first meeting this season with last minute bomb from Eli Manning to Victor Cruz. “It was something that wasn’t given to us,” said Cruz”The guys were in coverage, they were chasing after me, they were in a position to potentially make plays on the ball, but unfortunately for them, they didn’t do so.”
“It’s a game we felt we should have won,” Robert Griffin said. “And we didn’t win it, they got the win in their column, and we got the loss”.
“The things they faced facing us the last time with the running game are still there, but we’ve added elements in the passing game that make us more dangerous,” Griffin said. “So they’ll prepare for that, and we’ll see what happens.”
The Giants remembered how much trouble they had trying to stop RG3.
“He is one of the best dual threats in our game today, and we’re going to have our hands full trying to stop that guy,” Giants defensive end Justin Tuck said about RG3.
NY Giants are 5-1 SU in their last 6 games when playing on the road against Washington, but 1-4 against the spread. However, when the game is at Fedex Field, Washington is 2-4 ATS in their last 6 games when playing at home against NY Giants.
