Just how for real are these Washington Redskins? They’ve come off two impressive victories against their division opponents in the past two weeks and now face the Giants on Monday Night Football.
For the first time in five years, the Redskins are playing meaningful football in December, and you can expect FedEx Field to be in a state of pandemonium on a cold Monday night.
You don’t know what you are going to get from the New York Giants; this is the same team that got swept by last year’s 5-11 Redskins team. They also were blown out by the Bengals this year, only then to go on and have one of the most impressive wins of the year in taking down the Green Bay Packers.
The Giants can be a scary team and when they catch fire, they have proven to the league that they can beat anyone. They’ve been successful with clutch performances from Eli Manning and a superior defensive line.
