The Giants earn their first victory, 20-19, over Washington. Both teams are 1-5.
Touchdown Washington and they'll got for 2 w/:36 to go. And the Giants hold. Wow. 20-19 Giants with :36 to play.— Big Blue View (@bigblueview) October 18, 2020
Defensive score by rookie Tae Crowder gives the Giants the lead with 3:29 to play.
Wow!! Sack/fumble and Tae Crowder takes it home for a TD. Giants lead 20-13 with just more than 3:29 to play. Sack by Fackrell.— Big Blue View (@bigblueview) October 18, 2020
Washington ties the game at 13-13 on a Dustin Hopkins 28-yard field goal with 8:56 to play. That was a 14-play, 70-yard drive after the Jones interception.— Big Blue View (@bigblueview) October 18, 2020
Still 13-10 heading to fourth quarter. Daniel Jones threw a disastrous interception from the Washington 6-yard line to kill a 14-play drive by the Giants. Jones was under pressure from Chase Young and was intercepted by Washington’s Kendall Fuller. That might be the play that ends up sending the Giants to 0-6, if Washington can take advantage.
Injury news: Giants’ wide receiver C.J. Board was carted off with a head or neck injury early in the third quarter. Board has been ruled out with a neck injury.
Giants take 13-3 lead on 20-yard FG by Graham Gano. Giants went 73 yards on 8 plays, with Daniel Jones running for 49 yards to set up the score.
Washington on the board.
Washington makes it 10-3 with 35-yard Dustin Hopkins FG. 10:50 left in the half.— Big Blue View (@bigblueview) October 18, 2020
First quarter ends with Giants leading, 1-0. Daniel Jones 4 of 5 for 62 yards and a TD. Giants have completed passes of 21 yards to Evan Engram and 23 yards (for a TD) to Darius Slayton.
Giants jump to 10-0 lead with 1:36 left in first quarter. James Bradberry with a big interception to set up Daniel Jones’ first touchdown pass since Week 1.
23-yard Touchdown pass to Slayton. First Jones TD pass since Week 1. 145 passes w/o a TD. Slayton, who has a foot injury, did come up hobbling, but it's 10-0 Giants.— Big Blue View (@bigblueview) October 18, 2020
All I can say about this is ‘Wow!’
The expectation is that rookie LT Andrew Thomas will not start Sunday vs. Washington, per source. Rookie third-round pick Matt Peart will take his spot. We’ll see if it’s a temporary change.— Jordan Raanan (@JordanRaanan) October 18, 2020
