The New York Giants go for their second win of the season on Sunday afternoon, when they return home to play the Washington Redskins at MetLife Stadium. Let’s take a look around the Internet to see what the experts are predicting for Big Blue’s Sunday afternoon matchup.

SB Nation

Redskins: Ryan Van Bibber, Stephen White, Geoff Schwartz, Christian D’Andrea

Giants: Adam Stites, Charles McDonald, Jeanna Thomas


Redskins: Mike Clay, Mike Golic, Dan Graziano, Mina Kimes, Kevin Seifert, Trey Wingo, Matt Bowen, Louis Reddick

Giants: Seth Wickersham, Molly Qerim - Elliot Harrison

Division road games are never easy affairs. These two franchises have been going at it since 1932, back when Cliff Battles was chugging away for the Boston Braves (then Boston Redskins, then Washington Redskins), leading the league in rushing. The series has seen so many eras/stars: Sammy Baugh, Charlie Conerly, Frank Gifford and the 1956 NFL champs, Sonny Jurgensen’s ropes in the ‘60s, the dead-ball era of the Giants in the ‘70s, Gibbs vs. Parcells in the ‘80s. Unfortunately, Big Blue’s season is pretty much over. You realize they are allowing teams to score on 46.8 percent of their drives? That’s a huge percentage. Yet, if they deal the Redskins a loss here, it could pull the division awful tight with the Eagles playing a winnable game, and the Cowboys improved(?) with Amari Cooper. Still think the Giants lose.

The Redskins are playing well on defense, especially up front. That’s not a good thing for a Giants offensive line that is playing bad football. Look for the Redskins to dominate up front and force some Eli Manning turnovers. The Redskins will win a physical road game against a team that is playing for the future.

Giants: None.
