If the Daniel Jones is any good, the Giants are going to blow out the Redskins.
The Washington Redskins have been a mediocre team for years, but this season looks particularly awful. An unimpressive Chicago Bears team just came into their stadium on Monday Night Football last week and blew them out. Quarterback Case Keenum threw three picks and got sacked four times during a terrible game.
It looked like the Giants might be equally terrible until recently. Finally, a past-his-prime Eli Manning has been benched for rookie Daniel Jones. While Jones may not be perfect, he has already been a breath of fresh air in New York.
While the Giants gained a new star, they simultaneously lost a key piece of their team. Running back Saquon Barkley has a high ankle sprain and consequently will miss four to eight weeks. Last week, the top two rushers were Jones and receiver Sterling Shepard. Needless to say, they will look to find a better solution.
If the Giants passing game under Jones works as well as it did last week, resulting in two receivers with over 100 yards, a softer running game may not be a huge problem.
New York’s defense has been a bit of a mixed bag. The Giants secondary was a Jekyll and Hyde situation in Week 3, improving during the second half after giving up 28 points in the first two quarters. Overall, the secondary has been a weak spot for the G-Men.
On the other hand, the Giants pass rush finally got going, as Markus Golden recorded two sacks and four quarterback hits.
If there was ever a week to be figuring things out, it would be when you play the Redskins. In addition to Keenum’s terrible play, Washington’s running game combined for a mere 69 yards.
While the linebackers played fine in Week 3, dumb mistakes in the secondary and soft play up front nullified any progress the unit was making. This defense is still one of the league’s worst.
The Giants aren’t perfect and they may not be a playoff team, but they have the potential to be exciting with Daniel Jones at the helm. To sum up, this is the week to figure out how to move forward.
If Jones is who the Giants hope he is, the Giants should dominate the Redskins.

New York Giants vs. Washington Redskins live stream: How to watch NFL online
AirTV solves one of the Sling’s biggest problems: The inability to receive all of your local channels. By purchasing a basic AirTV for $79.99 or the AirTV Player for $119.99, you can merge those local channels into your Sling TV, (or on your mobile device if you have the basic AirTV). As the Daily Dot wrote in its AirTV review, “it’s practically magic.” While select football games are no longer on Sling after its contract impasse with Fox—which for now means no Fox, FS1, or FS2 via Sling—you can still catch the Fox telecasts with AirTV.
The basic AirTV is a dual-tuner streaming device, while the AirTV Player is basically an upgraded Chromecast that has Netflix preinstalled. You’ll still need to own an HD antenna because even though AirTV gets you access to your local channels, it doesn’t actually physically show them to you.
But AirTV—which has no monthly fee—serves to strengthen one of Sling’s biggest weaknesses compared to other live streaming services like Hulu with Live TV, YouTube TV, and PlayStation Vue. All those services have plenty of local channels.

It’s everything you love NFL Sunday Ticket but online-only. You can stream from pretty much any device that connects to the internet (but only on one device at a time).
You can also upgrade to the NFLST.TV Max bundle for a total of $99 per month for four months or one single payment of $395.99. You can also add on NFL Game Pass, which allows you to watch replays of every game after they air, for $50 for the full season.
There’s another way to watch NFL Sunday Ticket without DirecTV: Amazon Prime. While you can’t pay for the package using Amazon Prime, you can at least watch all of the games on the service. To start, first download the NFL Sunday Ticket channel on Amazon Prime. It’s free. From there, you’ll just need to sign in with your subscription credentials.
College students can purchase NFL Sunday Ticket at a discounted price through NFLSundayTicket.TV U.
Fantasy Football: Who should I start?
Wayne Gallman, Running Back: With Saquon Barkley out for four to eight weeks, Gallman looks to be the next man up. He didn’t exactly flash last week, but he will get a chance to be the number one rushing option going forward. In short, Gallman is a top flex option at the very least.
Terry McLaurin, Wide Receiver: Averaging 70 yards and a touchdown through three weeks, McLaurin is quickly becoming a solid WR2 consideration. The third-rounder is showing a lot of potential despite the team’s other struggles.
New York Giants vs. Washington Redskins: Why it matters
For both teams, this game is about the future.
In New York, the future is already here. Daniel Jones is going to be the man going forward for the Giants, and so far, that isn’t a bad thing.
The Redskins’ future hasn’t quite arrived yet. Case Keenum is, at best, a journeyman, and while has excelled in some stops of his career, Washington’s supporting cast is not doing him any favors. Redskins fans are surely counting down the days until first-round pick Dwayne Haskins gets to start. If the quarterback is a bust, at least fans will know things aren’t getting better anytime soon.
Even if the Giants miss the playoffs, the rest of the season will be about learning how to support Jones and get better for the future. This Redskins organization looks lost, and games like this are important insofar as they give us a hint of how long the team might be in the wilderness.
