The New York Giants battle the Washington Redskins in a showdown of cellar dwellers on Sunday night in Washington.

The Giants snapped a nine-game losing skid last week with a win over the Miami Dolphins. Meanwhile, the Redskins lost a thrilling contest against the Philadelphia Eagles last weekend to fall to 3-11 on the season, same record with the Giants. These teams are out of the postseason conversation and are merely going through the motions to finish what has been a disappointing season for both squads.

Football Manning’s Last Home-Start

The New York Giants snapped a franchise-tying nine-game losing streak when they defeated the Miami Dolphins 36-20 last weekend in what could be the last home start of Eli Manning’s career. Manning threw for two touchdown passes but he also had three interceptions in that victory.

Daniel Jones has thrown for a total of 2,374 yards with 18 touchdowns and 11 interceptions. Running back Saquon Barkley has rushed for a total of 722 yards with four touchdowns on 178 carries while Darius Slayton has 44 grabs for 690 yards and 8 scores for the Giants.

The Giants rank 21st in passing at 222.1 yards per game this season. They are 22nd on the ground with only 96.9 rushing yards per contest. New York is 23rd in the league in scoring at 20.2 points per game and the Giants are allowing their opponents to score an average of 27.3 points per game this season.

Football Heartbreaking Loss

The Washington Redskins suffered a heartbreaking loss to the Philadelphia Eagles last weekend. Washington gave up a touchdown with 26 seconds left in the game to give the Eagles a 31-27 lead. Then Philly forced a fumble which was returned to the endzone by Nigel Bradham and the Eagles scored two touchdowns in the final 30 seconds to cover the spread.

Dwayne Haskins has thrown for 1,232 yards with five touchdowns and seven interceptions. Adrian Peterson is the top running back with a total of 784 rushing yards with four touchdowns on 183 carries while Terry McLaurin has caught 51 passes for 833 receiving yards with seven touchdowns.

Washington ranks dead last in passing at only 168.4 passing yards per game this season. They are 20th in rushing with 101.1 yards per game on the ground. The Redskins are 31st in the NFL in scoring at 15.4 points per game and they are giving up an average of 24.8 points per game this season.

Football Who Wins?

The NY Giants are 1-9 SU in their last 10 games played. The Giants are 0-5 SU in their last five games played on the road. Washington is 3-13 SU in their last 16 games played. The Redskins are 1-6 SU in their last seven games played at home. Head to head, the Giants are 6-4 SU in the last 10 meetings between these two teams.

New York’s 36-20 win over the Miami Dolphins last week gave Eli Manning an overall record of 117-117 for his career and the Giants might want to let him ride into the sunset with a winning record and elect to start him in this game with Daniel Jones still sidelined by a high ankle sprain. Manning threw two touchdown passes but also had three interceptions against the Dolphins.

Interim coach Bill Callahan has led the Redskins to three wins and almost made it four last week against the Eagles. Despite last weekend’s setback, the Redskins have been competitive since Callahan has taken over. Washington is 3-11 on the season but has covered three out of their last four games.

The Washington secondary has been an issue all season long and they missed four cornerbacks in their game against the Eagles. However, I don’t think that will be an issue here against a Giants’ offense that will be led by Eli Manning or a returning Daniel Jones. I like the Redskins to play well at home and beat the Giants in this battle of 3-11 teams.

Odds from SportsBetting as of 12/19/19

Despite last weekend’s game, the Redskins are playing better than the Giants at this stage of the season. Washington has been competitive in every game since head coach Jay Gruden was fired last October. They have covered the spread in three out of their last four games and would have covered last week too if not for Philly’s late touchdown. The Redskins’ secondary has been one of its biggest weaknesses this season but that’s not a problem against a bad Giants’ offense.

Prediction: Redskins -2

The total has gone over in five out of the last seven games played by the Giants. The over is 5-2 in New York’s last seven games on the road, and the over is also 4-2 in their last six games against the NFC East. The total has gone under in eight out of the last 11 games played by the Redskins. The under is 8-4 in Washington’s last 12 games played in December. Head to head, the under is 5-1 in the last six games between the Giants and Redskins. The under is also 5-2 in the last seven games between these teams in Washington.

What are the Totals Odds?


41 (-110)


41 (-110)

Odds from SportsBetting as of 12/19/19

These teams have combined to score an average of 42.5 points per game in their last 10 meetings. The Rams have given up at least 40 points in their last two losses while the San Francisco defense has allowed an average of 38.33 points per game in their last three games played. The 49ers defense is banged up and I expect that Rams to be able to keep up with them such that the total breaches 45 points.

Prediction: Over 41
