It’s been a bit of Good Rex vs. Bad Rex today, but it’s been all Bad Eli so far, as the Redskins have taken a 17-3 lead heading into halftime.
While the problem isn’t solely with Eli Manning, who is 7 of 17 for 77 yards and an interception, the Giants haven’t gotten anything going on offense, and they haven’t stopped the Redskins 27th-ranked offense (in points scored). Despite throwing two interceptions, Rex Grossman is 10 of 17 for 122 yards and a touchdown
With the Cowboys manhandling the Buccaneers on Saturday night, the Giants need a win to keep pace in the NFC East. With a loss, though, New York would slip to 7-7 and reduce a playoff appearance rather dramatically.
It would be the first time since 1999 that the Redskins would sweep a season series against the Giants.
