After falling to the Washington Redskins, 17-16, on Monday Night Football, the New York Giants’ record stands at 7-5 through 13 weeks of football. The loss was the Giants’ third in their past four contests.
A dominating 38-10 victory over the Green Bay Packers in Week 12 must have overinflated New York’s confidence. Beating the Redskins would have provided a comfortable two-game lead in the division, but the team did not step up to the plate.
The Giants are heading into the final weeks of the season with much less breathing room than originally anticipated, but that may not be a bad thing. New York plays best when faced with adversity—even when it’s self-induced.
Let’s get to the winners and losers from Week 13.
