NOTES: The New York Giants come off a blown lead to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, losing 25-23. This team however did show some bright spots. The receiving corps of Darius Slayton, Sterling Shepard, and Golden Tate III has shown to be pretty reliable for Daniel Jones. And while Jones certainly needs to improve in accuracy, he put a much better performance than most would have assumed against a defense like Tampa Bay. The offensive line without a doubt needs to improve their play and Will Hernandez going on COVID-19 IR does not help at all. The defense has been decent. Blake Martinez has been on fire, currently leading the NFL in combined tackles and is ranked fourth in solo tackles. James Bradberry has also been a rising star. He currently ranks second in passes defended. This is a big game for the Giants as it’ll dictate the direction this team needs to head in, despite the game having little value to the rest of the NFL.
The Washington Football team is coming off their bye week after a crushing victory against the depleted Dallas Cowboys. However, this team still sits with a 2-5 record in a very disappointing NFC East division. Kyle Allen has had a solid start since taking over the starting quarterback duties. He currently has thrown four touchdowns and only one interception in three season. Compare this to last season in Carolina where he had 17 touchdowns and 16 interceptions in 13 games. While this offense doesn’t have any stars other than maybe Brandon Scherff on the offensive line, this team has still risen to the occasion and smashed a lot of exceptions they had entering the season. Antonio Gibson Jr. and Terry McLaurin are rising stars in this game if they continue to produce at the rate they are currently. This week will show how true this team, playing against the fairly evenly matched Giants.
