NFC Game Of The Week
Giants (7-4) at Redskins (5-6)
Giants: When the Giants play as well as they did on Sunday night against the Packers, I feel they’re the best team in the NFC and a top three team in the entire league. They had balance on offense, Eli looked like the Eli we saw at the beginning of the season and not the Eli who was struggling during that two game losing streak and the strength of that defense that front four made Aaron Rodgers’ night a miserable one. When their front four gets pressure on the QB, that defense as a whole plays well. If the Giants continue to play like this for the rest of the season, this is a team I’d be afraid to face come January in the playoffs. They travel to D.C. to face a Redskins team that’s a win away from being at .500. Can the Giants get a big road win?
Redskins: Last Thursday’s win in Dallas was a huge win for the Redskins. If they had lost that game, their record would’ve been 4-7 and the playoffs would’ve been distant. Now at 5-6, this team is in the hunt with so many others in the NFC such as those Cowboys and Saints. The last time the Redskins played the Giants, Justin Tuck clearly stated that Robert Griffin III was the best player they faced all season long. The Redskins could’ve won that week 7 match up but Eli was eli in the fourth quarter like usual. This is another big game for these Redskins with the defending Super Bowl champs coming to town and it’s their third straight divisional game. Can RGIII shine in his Monday Night debut?
Prediction: The Giants will have all the momentum and confidence coming into this game. The Redskins feel they can compete with anyone and with a win, they’ll be at.500. I like the Giants to take this game. Giants 31 Redskins 21
