Good morning, New York Giants fans!

Rivera defends Jabrill Peppers

There are some who believe Jabrill Peppers’ leg whip of Kyle allen, which dislocated the quarterback’s ankle, was an intentional, dirty play. Washington coach Ron Rivera isn’t one of them.

What I saw is he got cut, and as he goes down he saw Kyle trying to get outside. Again, this is a guy trying to make a play. I don’t think it’s a dirty play. This is a guy trying to make a play. I get it. I’ve been there in that situation. Peppers is a heck of a football player. He plays 100 miles an hour.”

Game notes

  • The Giants gained a season-high 402 yards, their highest total of the season.
  • The Giants’ 35 rushing attempts is their highest total of the season.
  • Washington rushed for only 37 yards, the lowest total by a Giants opponent since the Minnesota Vikings ran for 30 yards on Oct. 21, 2013.
  • The Giants had five takeaways and no giveaways. Blake Martinez, Jabrill Peppers and Logan Ryan intercepted Alex Smith, and Peppers and Madre Harper recovered fumbles. It was their highest takeaway total and their best turnover differential since Sept. 25, 2014, when they had six takeaways (four interceptions and two fumble recoveries) against one giveaway … at Washington.
