Instant analysis of Redskins mistake-laden 18-10 loss to Giants

Instant analysis of Redskins mistake-laden 18-10 loss to Giants

I'm not going to go into all the tiebreakers and possible scenarios for what could benefit the Redskins' draft position and what could hurt it, but a lot could change today. In those two games, they only gave up 26 points.

The New York Giants got their first conference win of the season against their division rival the Washington Redskins on Sunday.

It was 13 degrees at kickoff for New England's game against the New York Jets, and the Patriots wanted to make sure their visitors knew it.

The Giants have struggled to run the ball all season and now rank 29th in the National Football League averaging just 85.9 yards per game. Cousins scored on a 12-run two plays later. The Giants, as you may have heard, will probably be in the market for a new quarterback soon; Eli Manning is about to turn 37 and is wrapping up one the worst seasons of his career, and with a new GM and a new head coach in town, there could be plenty of turnover for the Giants.

After winning the opening coin toss, the Redskins elected to defer to the second half giving Washington's defense the opportunity to take the field first on Sunday. The Giants need to start planning for the future at quarterback.

Apple was held out of Sunday's 12-9 overtime victory over the Chiefs as a healthy scratch, and the feeling within the Giants' organization was that the move was made by coach Ben McAdoo because the 2016 first-round cornerback spent several days in the hospital with his mother Annie, who underwent brain surgery last Thursday.

After a Preston Smith interception of a awful screen pass by Eli Manning, Washington's Kirk Cousins cashed it when he outran the Giants' defense to the left pylon for a 12-yard scoring jaunt off a bootleg.

The worst season in Giants history is finally over. If he plays the way he did last week, the Giants will finish the season 2-14.

PLAYER SPOTLIGHT: Redskins LB Zach Vigil.

As usual, OLB Ryan Kerrigan did his part in the contest, sacking Giants QB Eli Manning twice and forcing a fumble.

TITLE ON THE LINE: The sluggishness Bell showed in the opener, when he managed just 32 yards on 10 carries after skipping training camp while waiting to sign his franchise tender, has vanished.

Early in the second quarter, Kirk Cousins hit the 4,000-yard mark in passing yards with a third down completion to Jamison Crowder.

The second-year quarterback has been active for only four games, including the last two, since being taken in the second round out of Penn State.

Giants CB Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie vs. Redskins WR Jamison Crowder: Crowder is the Redskins' leading receiver (63 catches for 764 yards and three touchdowns), and 73.7 percent of his routes have been run out of the slot.

Jenkins plucked a KIrk Cousins pass out of the air when it sailed away from the outstretched arms of running back Byron Marshall and raced 53 yards for the score. The Redskins will not have that third non-losing season in a row.

The Giants' offensive line will also feature rookie Adam Bisnowaty, who was promoted from the practice squad Saturday when Bobby Hart was waived/injured.

-The Redskins had 66 yards of offense in the third quarter. With one more, he will set a career high in sacks.

The offense continued to struggle moving the ball, as Way once again came out to punt on the Redskins' next appearance.
