Their records may not be great, but anytime New York and Washington get together for an NFC East rivalry, something interesting is bound to happen. Despite the teams’ records, both teams still have a shot to win the division.
The Giants (0-5) are on pace to have the first pick in the 2021 NFL Draft, but are only two games out of first place behind Dallas. There hasn’t been much to cheer for on the offensive side of the ball as Daniel Jones hasn’t thrown a touchdown since Week 1. With the absence of Saquon Barkley for the year, Jones is also the team’s leading rusher with just 137 yards. Kicker Graham Gano may be the scoring star of this team after connecting on three field goals of at least 50 yards last week against the Cowboys.
Washington (1-4) hasn’t fared much better at the quarterback position after benching Dwayne Haskins leading up to Week 5. Kyle Allen got the start but was replaced due to injury in the second quarter by Alex Smith. Smith made his first appearance since a gnarly leg injury 2018 and completed nine passes for 37 yards. Allen is expected to be the starter again versus the Giants.
The two teams play at least twice a year with New York winning four of the last five. The division rivals play each other again in Week 9.
