The 2014 season is beginning like a repeat of the 2013 campaign for the New York Football Giants.

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.

A bit sloppy? Sure. Each team had a lead and a chance to grab the game by the throat and failed to do so. In the end, the Giants reached back and made enough plays to post their sixth win in their past nine games.
Detroit Lions wide receiver Calvin Johnson is active against the New York Giants. He was listed as questionable for Sunday’s game because of an injured right knee.
We are giving out three defensive game balls for the first time ever. How can you leave out Justin Tuck with a career-high four sacks or Jon Beason for his 17 tackles or Will Hill for stealing the ball from Pierre Garcon on fourth down at the Giants 49 with 1:19 left?
The New York Giants remained in the playoff hunt with a come from behind victory over the Washington Redskins on Sunday Night Football.
