What the experts think about the Giants Week 14 matchup
The New York Giants look to get back on another win streak, when head back to FedEx Field to take on the Washington Redskins on Sunday at 1 p.m. EST. Let’s take a look around the Internet to see what the experts are predicting for Big Blue’s Sunday afternoon matchup.
Redskins: Charles McDonald, Stephen White
Giants: Christian D’Andrea, Joe McAtee, , Geoff Schwartz, Ryan Van Bibber, Adam Stites
Redskins: Dan Graziano,
Giants: Seth Wickersham, Louis Riddick, Molly Qerim, Mike Clay, Mike Golic, Mina Kimes, Kevin Seifert, Trey Wingo, Matt Bowen
Giants 17, Redskins 13
Despite owning a 4-8 record, Big Blue doesn’t think it’s out of the postseason picture. For good reason, too: The NFC East could bunch up right quick. If the Giants are able to oust the Redskins this weekend, they will pull within a game of Washington. If the Eagles knock off the Cowboys, New York would suddenly be just two games back of first-place Philadelphia with three games left. Perhaps still a tall order to take the division, yet with the Vikings and Panthers struggling, eight wins might be enough to grab that last wild-card space. Eli Manning is the central figure in terms of the outcome of this NFC East tussle. The Redskins can be awfully tough to run against, which means Saquon Barkley can’t be relied upon to bail out the offense. Also, Manning has fared quite poorly in D.C. Over his career, Eli’s posted a sub-90 passer rating there in 10 of 14 starts, with 16 touchdowns and 12 interceptions. In six of his last eight starts there, Big Blue has failed to score 20. So, the outlook is bleak. Then again, his counterpart across the field is Mark Sanchez. Sanchez can call the heck out of those plays.
Giants 21, Redskins 14
The Redskins are down to Mark Sanchez at quarterback. That’s not a good thing. The Giants have won three of four and have played some of their best football the past month. They will continue surging as the Redskins struggle mightily on offense.
Redskins: Bette Marston,
