The Redskins will be going into Primetime Monday night football knowing very well they cannot afford to lose to the Giants again after the painful loss in their first encounter. Just about six weeks ago the Redskins were sure of a victory against the Giants as they lead 23-20 with 90 seconds left in the game, only for Eli Manning to through a 77-yard touchdown pass to Victor Cruz to put the Giants up 27-23.
With a few more seconds left in the game the Redskins were hoping for a game winning drive, but any hope of winning the game was dashed when they fumbled the ball, and eventually lost the game.
The Redskins knew they had the last game and were supposed to win, but since that is in the past, they will be looking to redeem themselves on Primetime Monday night football. Currently at 5-6, the Redskins will be going into Monday’s game at second place in the NFC East, and will like to at least maintain that position in order to possibly snatch a wildcard berth.
Currently, the Redskins are at their best and can only get better. They have won consecutive games against divisional rivals, the Dallas Cowboys, and the Philadelphia Eagles. If the Redskins defense steps up their game and limit penetration by the Giants offense, I believe RGIII and the Redskins offense are capable of making sure they get enough points to win the game.
RGIII currently has one of the best stats in the league and has been very accurate with his passes. With Redskins wide receiver Pierre Garcon expected to be in action, we can expect much from those two. Garcon is coming off a five-catch 93-yard game against the Dallas Cowboys on Thanksgiving and he is confident he can do better when the Redskins meet the Super-Bowl champions on Monday.
