Las Vegas oddsmakers apparently didn't put mock stock in the New York Giants' 30-17 victory over the Houston Texans. The Giants opened the week as a whopping 6-point underdog to the Washington Redskins for Thursday night's game. Per SB Nation's NFL Odds page, the line has already moved to 3 or 3.5 points in most places. Still, considering that both teams enter the game 1-2 that seems like a huge lack of respect for the Giants.

The Redskins are coming off a wild 37-34 loss to the NFC East-leading Philadelphia Eagles.

Washington on Monday placed cornerback DeAngelo Hall (achilles) and safety Duke Ihenacho (fractured heel) on injured reserve, so the Redskins secondary is depleted.

The Redskins will look different to Giants fans. They will be quarterbacked by Kirk Cousins with Robert Griffin III sidelined, and they are now coached by Jay Gruden.
