The New York Giants limped past the lifeless Washington Redskins 20-6 in the rainy Meadowlands. New York lost quarterback Eli Manning to an ankle injury late in the first half, but rode two Jerrel Jernigan touchdowns to the victory. The loss likely ends the Mike Shanahan-era in Washington.
One more game. One more time. One more opportunity for the approximately two dozen free agents on the Giants’ roster to put their work on tape.
As bad as the 2013 NFL campaign has gone for the New York Giants, give them credit, the team has not turned on each other or their coach. The Washington Redskins, on the other hand, are a textbook example of dysfunctional. Backup quarterback Kirk Cousins will get the start for Washington as the Redskins and Giants conclude their seasons at the Meadowlands.
The New York Giants remained in the playoff hunt with a come from behind victory over the Washington Redskins on Sunday Night Football. Robert Griffin III started hot, but cooled off as Justin Tuck rattled the Redskins quarterback with four sacks. Meanwhile Giants quarterback Eli Manning completed 22 of 28 passes for 235 yards and one touchdown, as New York improved to 5-7 on the season.
On paper before the season, this game had all the makings of knock-down, drag-out affair as two bitter NFC rivals would meet for the first time in 2013. But reality got in the way for both the New York Giants and the Washington Redskins, as both teams have stumbled through the NFL season. Rather than playoff position, the only thing at stake is pride as theses teams meet on Sunday night.

When the red-hot Seahawks take on the equally scorching Redskins on Sunday afternoon in our nation’s capital the world will get to see the most fascinating QB battle in recent memory.
It’s a new generation that has Washington atop the NFC East for the first time this millennium.
The Saints’ four-headed rushing attack could cause problems for the Giants on Sunday.
In some ways the rematch with the Washington Redskins turned out to be a reverse of their first meeting. The Giants will be looking hard in the mirror after this one, as they were penalized nine times for 73 yards.
Coach Tom Coughlin and his players have experienced the phenom known as RGIII — and they escaped in Week 7, winning 27-23. But the Washington Redskins no longer have that element of surprise on their side.
Victor Cruz had seven catches for 131 yards, including a 77-yard TD on a post that won the game with 1:13 left. And midway through the third quarter, Joseph jarred the ball free from RB Alfred Morris at the Giants’ 39 with the score tied at 13.
