The Redskins have looked better than expected during the first two weeks, especially in the first half of the game. Week 1 saw the Redskins dominate in one half, only to see it slip away in the second. Last week the Redskins were dominant throughout, and did not let a late Rams comeback steal their victory. If the Redskins can cut down on the mistakes and penalties, they have a legitimate chance in any game. Their defense has been one of the best in the league, even with significant injuries and suspensions. The offensive line has vastly improved under new coach Bill Callahan, and the running game has been a big beneficiary.
The Giants are coming off of two straight games that saw their 4th quarter leads disappear due to bad luck, bad decisions by players, and poor play. New York is 0-2, and will stay at the basement of the NFC East with Philadelphia after another loss. Thursday night games are always unpredictable due to the short week, and the Giants will be looking to repeat last year's game. But the teams are different this year, and nothing is given. Expect a tough defensive matchup tomorrow night.
