Good morning, New York Giants fans!

What to know: The Giants just don’t seem to know how to win. This time they let the game slip away on multiple occasions, with the final mistake being when they jumped offsides on a last-second field goal attempt, giving Washington the second chance it needed to win. “Yeah, it was a pretty tough one,” wide receiver Sterling Shepard said. That’s an understatement. The Giants are 0-2 for the fifth straight year, and need to learn how to win. Or as Joe Judge likes to stress, learn how not to lose. — Jordan Raanan

What is wrong with the Giants’ defense? This group is not pressuring the quarterback and is allowing big plays all over the field. The Giants had just four pressures against Washington and have allowed 57 points in the first two games. The only allowed 27 or more points three times all of last season. — Raanan

Raanan’s confidence rating (0-10): 3.2, down from 4.2. It’s not looking good after two weeks. An 0-2 hole is not something the Giants can’t escape in a 17-game season, but it sure is prohibitive and familiar.
