Giants Redskins Game Preview

The Giants just have to keep winning, if they want to ensure a playoff berth. Can they keep it alive against the Redskins?

Washington

Out: T Jammal Brown (groin), RB Mike Sellers (elbow)

Probable: DE Stephen Bowen (knee), S Reed Doughty (rib), LB London Fletcher (ankle), P Saverio Rocca (left ankle), WR Donte’ Stallworth (illness, ankle)

NY Giants

Out: C David Baas (neck), TE Travis Beckum (chest), LB Mark Herzlich (ankle), S Derrick Martin (back), DE Osi Umenyiora (ankle, knee)

Questionable: DE Justin Tuck (toe)

Probable: RB Ahmad Bradshaw (foot), LB Spencer Paysinger (hamstring), S Kenny Phillips (hamstring)

OFFENSE:

The Giants are now the Eli Manning show. Manning has proven to be a consistently stellar QB this season, and even if the Giants are down late in games, there’s no need to panic. The run game hasn’t been great, although it’s been better. But with guys like NIcks, Cruz, Manningham, this is an explosive passing attack. The Giants are never too far back. They won’t be in this game either.

DEFENSE:

The defense, outside of Jason Pierre-Paul, is pretty putrid. Can’t stop the passing game. Okay against the run. But outside of JPP, they really can’t stop anyone. Of course, the Skins don’t have the same passing attack that the Cowboys and Packers do. But defense is not their strong suit.

THE REDSKINS:

Whether it’s Rex Grossman or John Beck it doesn’t matter; this is a bad offense. No real run game. No real passing game. Defense has some player, particularly Brian Orakpo. But this isn’t a great team.

PREDICTION:

The Giants are the better team. Of course, I said that in week 1. But, I think the GIants have some momentum, and playing at home will help. FINAL SCORE: Giants 24, Redskins 10

    Don’t sleep on Helu, this kid could be a top 10 running back in a year’s time, he’s certainly playing like one now.
