The Giants and Redskins meet this weekend at the Meadowlands, and for the Giants you can pretty much consider each game the rest of the way a "must-win."
Now, I'm not saying the Giants will have to be 12-4 to make the playoffs, but with four teams legitimately going for two Wild Card spots, every game has that much more importance.
This is the first meeting between the divisional foes, and the Giants have typically played well against their East Coast rival. In his career, Eli Manning is 9-3 against the Redskins, including a sweep of the season series in 2006, 2008 and 2009.
However, the Redskins are under a new regime with Mike Shanahan and Donovan McNabb being the major new parts, so they should not be taken lightly.
The following article will look at five player or unit matchups that will go a long way in deciding the outcome of the game.
