The Washington Redskins host the New York Giants tonight for MNF. With the Cowboys beating the Eagles last night, the Redskins need to win in order to keep 2nd place in
the NFC East. A win tonight will put them 1 win away from first place. Seeing how they still have to play the Cowboys AND the Eagles, Ws mathematically puts them in the Playoffs. One can only hope.
Yes the Giants are good. Yes Eli is good. The last game played against the Giants in week 7 was 27-23 loss (an almost W in my mind). The Redskins have won 2 in a row against divisional rivals Cowboys and Eagles. I’m hoping this is the streak that will continue.
What will help the Redskins is WR Pierre Garcon is in. Both London Fletcher and Trent Williams are listed as Questionable, but you’ll see them out.
One of thing going for the Redskins which has nothing to do with stats is the Giants player’s mouths. Victor Cruz has yapped the following when asked about the Redskins’
playoff potential: “They’re still a couple pieces away from actually being a contender, them being in legitimate talks for playoffs and things like that. They’re still a few pieces away whether it be defensively or wherever they are missing some pieces.” I think you’re missing a few pieces Cruz. I guess we’ll see if they’re still missing all these pieces after tonight.
As the for Giants’ Defense? DL Justin Tuck had this to say about facing RG3 again: “Until I exit stage right, it seems like he’s going to be a fixture in my dreams and nightmares.”
And RG3? Even after winning, again and again, the Rookie of the Week and Air Player of the week, he speaks as though he’s never received them. I hope he keeps himself this humble.

I lived in Greene County Virginia for about 5 years of my childhood. This span of time was enough to imprint the love of the Washington Redskins (and hate of the Dallas Cowboys) into my life forever, even though I am Canadian and still live in Canada. I am in no way an expert on sports, football, or even the Redskins, but I do absolutely adore them, their fans and their home state(s). My favourite Redskin is and will always be Darrell Green (not because we share the same last name lol). I've adored Chris Cooley since he joined the team from the 2004 draft and love London Fletcher. Hail to the Redskins! See you October 30th in my home town of Toronto.
