It was a close, exciting, nerve-wracking game, but the New York Giants came through with the 41-35 overtime win on Sunday against the Washington Redskins.

This was a big game for the Giants’ offense as they took advantage of a terrible Washington defense for a 41-point, 552-yard offensive explosion. Saquon Barkley

Unfortunately, this was a nerve-wracking game, largely because the Giants played very little defense and allowed the Redskins to essentially double their usual offensive production. So then, what happened in Washington, and why?

Note: Because of the holiday week, we are dispensing with our usual quick take and deep-dive format. Instead we are just going to do one podcast reviewing the game before moving on to preview the season finale against the Philadelphia Eagles. As such, this podcast is a bit longer than our usual post-game offering, but there was also a lot to talk about.

Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukkah, and a Happy Hump Day to everyone!
