Sunday Morning Bloody Mary: Handicappers Guide Redskins @ Giants

Shanahan: "If they don’t play hard down the stretch, they won’t be with you next year."

I believe that...and I'm not worried about it since the Skins even played hard to the end with Zorn. The Giants opened up as -7.5 favorites and the line moved to -7. That many people like the Redskins, eh?! The Giants are a top 3 offense and defense, so I'm really concerned how our lines can handle theirs. I said the same against the Titans and look how that worked out. Feel free to add any pro/cons in the comments and I'll add them in.

Pros Cons
Giants 26th in Turnover Ratio (-6) Giants 3rd ranked defense
Giants tied for 1st with most offensive fumbles lost (14). Giants 2nd ranked offense
Redskins have knocked out 3 Qbs Giants have knocked out 5 Qbs
Giants rank 29th with 16 INTs Giants have 3rd best ToP in NFL 33:08
Redskins still top 10 in turnover ratio (+5) Giants #1 in NFL with 16 rushes 20+ yards
Redskins have upped their 3rd down % to 28%. We're no longer in last place alone!! (AZ) Giants tied for 1st with 23 passing TDs
Giants rushing D given up NFL 3rd worst three runs 40+yards Redskins rushing D given up NFL 1st worst four runs 40+yards
All those losses were with Zorn on the helm NY GIANTS are 4-0 against the spread versus WASHINGTON over the last 3 seasons (all wins of course)
Will Montgomery is starting at RG (sorry for all you Redskins fans with Artis Hicks jerseys) Giants tied for 3rd with Philly with passing plays 20+ (43)
 Giants rank 28th in PR (6.3 yards) and 32nd in KR (18.3 yards avg)  Redskins are 6th and 9th. Imagine our ranking if the Lil Assassin started the season with us.
 Center Shaun O'Hara (foot), WR Hakeem Nicks (leg), LT Shawn Andrews (back) and CB/KR Will Blackmon (chest) are listed as out.  Laron Landry and Carlos Rogers are out. Toran made the trip to NYC but is likely not playing (he didn't practice all week)


All things considered, I like the Giants and Bears today against the spread.
