Very quickly, let’s examine the Monday night game between the Redskins and the Giants. Washington has been playing well lately. They have won two straight against NFC East opponents and came very close to beating the Giants the first time around. Now they get a second crack at the defending Super Bowl Champions, this time in their backyard. New York looked impressive last week against Green Bay after looking very flat versus Cincinnati and Pittsburgh. Eli Manning keeps pin-balling back and forth between elite and non-elite status. Their running game is sort of hit or miss these days and the defense is still suspect to giving up big plays. The Redskins are going to try and run the ball down the Giants’ throat and settle for some hard play-actions. The key for New York will be containing RGIII in the pocket and getting some pressure on him. The G-Men should be able to do so and will win this game because of the duress that Robert Griffin will be under for a majority of this game.
