New York @ Washington

Current Records: New York 1-7; Washington 2-5

What to Know

The Washington Football Team haven’t won a game against the New York Giants since Oct. 28 of 2018, but they’ll be looking to end the drought Sunday. Washington will take on New York at 1 p.m. ET at FedEx Field after a week off. Washington will be strutting in after a victory while the Giants will be stumbling in from a defeat.

When you finish with 255 more yards than your opponent like Washington did two weeks ago, a favorable outcome is almost sure to follow. They made easy work of the Dallas Cowboys and carried off a 25-3 win. The oddsmakers were on Washington’s side, but they didn’t give the squad enough credit as the margin was unexpectedly wide. Their RB Antonio Gibson looked sharp as he rushed for one TD and 128 yards on 20 carries. That nimble footwork stands out as the first time Gibson has hit the 100-yard rushing mark this season.

Washington’s defense was a presence as well, holding the Cowboys to a paltry 142 yards. The defense embarrassed Dallas’ offensive line to sack the QB six times for a loss of 55 yards. Leading the way was LB Montez Sweat and his two sacks. Sweat now has five sacks this season.

Meanwhile, it was a hard-fought contest, but New York had to settle for a 25-23 loss against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers last Monday. No one had a standout game offensively for New York, but they got scores from WR Golden Tate, RB Dion Lewis, and RB Wayne Gallman. QB Daniel Jones ended up with a passer rating of 119.80.

Washington’s win brought them up to 2-5 while the Giants’ defeat pulled them down to 1-7. Washington is 0-1 after wins this year, and New York is 1-5 after losses.
