The Washington Redskins and New York Giants meet Sunday in NFL action at MetLife Stadium.
The Washington Redskins need a victory here to save their season and avoid a brutal 0-4 start. The Washington Redskins have lost five of their last eight road games. Case Keenum is completing 69.4 percent of his passes for 933 yards, seven touchdowns and three interceptions. Keenum has 10 touchdown passes in his last four games. Terry McLaurin and Chris Thompson have combined for 452 receiving yards and three touchdowns while Paul Richardson has 15 receptions. The Washington Redskins ground game is averaging 48 yards per contest, and Adrian Peterson leads the way with 62 yards and one touchdown. Defensively, Washington is allowing 31.3 points and 402.7 yards per game. Landon Collins leads the Washington Redskins with 20 tackles, Cassanova McKinzy has one sack and Montae Nicholson has one interception.
The New York Giants look for their first home win to get back to a .500 record. The New York Giants have lost seven of their last nine home games. Daniel Jones is completing 65 percent of his passes for 353 yards, two touchdowns and zero interceptions. Jones enters this game with 40 career pass attempts under his belt. Evan Engram and Sterling Shepard have combined for 419 receiving yards and three touchdowns while Cody Latimer has six receptions. The New York Giants ground game is averaging 117.3 yards per contest, and Saquon Barkley leads the way with 237 yards and one touchdown. Defensively, New York is allowing 31.5 points and 441 yards per game. Antoine Bethea leads the New York Giants with 26 tackles, Markus Golden has three sacks and Ryan Connelly has one interception.
The Redskins are 5-2 ATS in their last 7 road games, 1-5 ATS in their last 6 vs. NFC East and 1-6 ATS in their last 7 vs. NFC. The Giants are 5-2-1 ATS in their last 8 vs. NFC, 2-5 ATS in their last 7 vs. NFC East and 1-7-1 ATS in their last 9 home games. The under is 13-3 in the last 16 meetings in New York and 4-1 in the last 5 meetings. The over is 4-1 in Giants last 5 games overall. The over is 4-1 in Redskins last 5 games overall.
The Washington Redskins have covered seven of their last 11 games as a road underdog. The New York Giants are 3-7-1 ATS in their last 11 games as a home favorite. The Redskins are coming off a rough performance against the Chicago Bears and are now preparing for this game on short rest and an offense that has dropped in production each of the last three weeks. The New York Giants are riding on cloud nine after a big comeback against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and the encouraging play from quarterback Daniel Jones in his first career start. While it's just one game and the injury to Saquon Barkley does hurt, you can expect the Giants to have a little pep in their step this week after finally having something to cheer for and having a young QB who could possibly be a reliable option. While the jury is still out on the Giants, the Redskins haven't looked good for the most part. I'll lay the small chalk with the home team in New York.
