Washington falls short in 23-20 loss to the Giants

That was not a good day of football

NFL: New York Giants at Washington Football Team Geoff Burke-USA TODAY Sports

The Washington Football Team attempted to comeback from a 20-3 first half, and fell just short. The New York Giants swept Washington again this year, beating them 23-20 today. Daniel Jones improves to 4-0 against his favorite division rival.

Washington turned the ball over 5 times today. Three of those turnovers were Alex Smith interceptions. Smith has apparently become a gunsliger in his rebirth in the NFL. He was 24/32 for 325 yards and a TD, numbers he never put up in his first season with Washington in 2018. But the interceptions were killer. He threw a redzone pick right before the half that killed their momentum going into half time. The two picks on the final two drives of the game were unforgivable. The first one came as Smith was scrambling and he threw across his body and high to J.D. McKissic. The final INT was gift wrapped to Logan Ryan, Smith threw it directly to him.

Washington now drops to 2-6, and are currently tied with the Dallas Cowboys who host the Steelers this afternoon. The Giants improve to 2-7. The Philadelphia Eagles have their bye this week, and remain in 1st place with a 3-4-1 record. Does anyone want to win this division?
