Winners of three of their last four games and facing a Washington Redskins team on Sunday that will be using its third quarterback in four weeks the New York Giants find themselves a 4-point favorite for Sunday’s game in Landover, Md.
The Giants were 1-point underdogs in the game’s opening line, but Monday’s season-ending injury to Colt McCoy has swung the line drastically in favor of the Giants.
Mark Sanchez, out of the league just three weeks ago, took over for McCoy in Monday’s 28-13 Washington loss to the Philadelphia Eagles.
The 6-6 Redskins have now lost three straight games, a streak that began when quarterback Alex Smith suffered a gruesome season-ending leg injury against the Houston Texans.
The Giants, after struggling to score points for the better part of 21/2 seasons, have averaged 29.25 points per game over their past four games. Over a full season, that would rank them third in the NFL.
Sunday’s game is at 1 p.m. ET.
