For the third-consecutive week the Giants face a NFC East opponent in a huge game. With Dallas’ victory over New Orleans Saturday Night, the Giants will probably have to win their last three games to have any shot at the playoffs.
As they showed last Sunday, the Giants have huge issues on defense and those issues may be growing. Corey Webster is listed as doubtful. Aaron Ross is listed as questionable and without those two, the secondary will really be stretched. To make matters worse, Washington has become a much more competitive team over the past few weeks. They narrowly lost to both Dallas and Philadelphia and they beat Denver, a team that humiliated the Giants on Thanksgiving Night.
Eli and the offense should be able to move the ball and score a ton of points, but unless the defense shows up, it won’t be enough. Betting on the Giants defense to do anything at this point is a fool’s choice and that’s why the pick is a win for Washington.
