The Giants lost at home to Denver in week 1 27-13. They were out gained 6.4yppl to 5.3yppl, out rushed 5.9ypr to 3.0ypr (70 yd run for Denver otherwise 3.5ypr) and out passed 6.7yps to 6.5yps. Toss in another Daniel Jones fumble and somethings do not change from year to year. NY drove to the Denver 43, 6 and 21 yard lines but those drives ended in punts, fumble, downs and downs. So they moved the ball but could not finish their drives.
Meanwhile Washington was losing at home 20-16 to the Chargers. WFT was out gained 5.4yppl to 5.3yppl but did out rush the Chargers 4.7ypr to 3.1ypr while the Chargers out passed WFT 6.8yps to 6.0yps. The Chargers controlled the clock an extra 13 minutes in the game. Washington also had to settle for field goals on three different drives.
I don’t have any situations on this game. My numbers favor WFT by just 1.1 points and project about 39.6 points. The Giants defeated Washington in both games last year 20-19 and 23-20 here in Washington. Washington has a much better offensive line, a better defensive line while the secondaries are pretty even. But, the Giants have better skill position players to make things happen. This figures to be a low scoring game and getting over three points is a lot in a type of game like this. I will lean towards the Giants in this game getting some value. WASHINGTON 21 NY GIANTS 20
