This Week 6 matchup is going to have major implications come draft night. These two NFC East rivals have a combined record of 1-9 through five games. Washington will be on the road taking on the New York Giants in this one.
For Washington, their offensive line was completely demolished by the Los Angeles Rams in Week 5. Aaron Donald finished with four sacks. The big story early in the week was the benching of Dwayne Haskins and multiple reports about Washington possibly dealing their first-round quarterback because of maturity issues.
The story quickly turned to Alex Smith when Kyle Allen was forced to leave the game with an injury. Allen will be back under center against the Giants after being medically cleared.
The Giants scored just three touchdowns heading into their matchup against the Dallas Cowboys. They were able to score three total, two offensive, in a 34-31 loss. Daniel Jones has not thrown a touchdown pass since Week 1 on Monday night. The Cowboys were able to tie the game at 17 in the second quarter on a scoop-and-score after a Jones’ fumble. This is something that seems to happen every week.
Both Washington and the Giants have big needs all over the field. This could make for an entertaining game but one that will certainly be poorly played. Here are five bold predictions for this NFC East matchup.
