The New York Giants and Washington Redskins meet Sunday in week 16 NFL action at FedEx Field.
The New York Giants have a chance to win back-to-back games for the first time since weeks 3-4. The New York Giants have lost five straight road games. Daniel Jones is completing 61.6 percent of his passes for 2,374 yards, 18 touchdowns and 11 interceptions. Jones enters this game with 370 career pass attempts under his belt. Darius Slayton and Golden Tate have combined for 1,202 receiving yards and 13 touchdowns while Evan Engram has 44 receptions. The New York Giants ground game is averaging 96.9 yards per contest, and Saquon Barkley leads the way with 722 yards and four touchdowns. Defensively, New York is allowing 27.3 points and 376.9 yards per game. Antoine Bethea leads the New York Giants with 98 tackles, Markus Golden has nine sacks and Janoris Jenkins has four interceptions.
The Washington Redskins look for a win after losing six of their last eight games. The Washington Redskins have lost four of their last five home games. Dwayne Haskins is completing 56.9 percent of his passes for 1,232 yards, five touchdowns and seven interceptions. Case Keenum and Haskins have combined for 14 touchdowns and 11 interceptions. Terry McLaurin and Chris Thompson have combined for 1,193 receiving yards and seven touchdowns while Kelvin Harmon has 22 receptions. The Washington Redskins ground game is averaging 101.1 yards per contest, and Adrian Peterson leads the way with 784 yards and four touchdowns. Defensively, Washington is allowing 24.8 points and 363.8 yards per game. Landon Collins leads the Washington Redskins with 110 tackles, Matt Ioannidis has 8.5 sacks and Quinton Dunbar has four interceptions.
The Giants are 11-3 ATS in their last 14 road games, 8-2-1 ATS vs. a team with a losing record and 8-0 ATS in their last 8 games on grass. The Redskins are 5-1 ATS in their last 6 vs. NFC, 2-7 ATS in their last 9 home games and 1-7 ATS in their last 8 vs. NFC East. The over is 7-2 in Giants last 9 road games. The under is 8-3 in Redskins last 11 games overall. The Giants are 9-4 ATS in their last 13 meetings. The favorite is 4-1 ATS in their last 5 meetings. The under is 5-2 in the last 7 meetings in Washington and 5-1 in the last 6 meetings.
The New York Giants have won four of the last six meetings against the Redskins, but this years team simply isn't good and isn't trustworthy on the road. The Giants had a couple of good weeks playing hard for Eli Manning, but that motivation is now gone as they go back to Daniel Jones. The Washington Redskins have holes to worry about themselves and aren't winning games, but they just took the Eagles and Packers down to the wire, while beating the Panthers and Lions. The Washington Redskins have been more promising over the last month or so. Give me the home team and the free point in this NFC East tossup.
