The New York Giants get their first look at the Robert Griffin III version of the Washington Redskins this Sunday. The Redskins (3-3) will visit MetLife Stadium for a 1 p.m. ET game against the NFC East-leading Giants (4-2).
The Giants are coming off their most impressive victory of the season, a 26-3 battering of the San Francisco 49ers. The Redskins defeated the Minnesota Vikings on Sunday, 38-26.
The game has meaning to the Giants for several reasons. New York leads the NFC East, but is already 0-2 in the division with losses to the Dallas Cowboys and Philadelphia Eagles.
"We know we're 4-2 right now, but for us to come in, starting with this week, and get a division win is a step closer for us to put ourselves in position to get to the postseason," said linebacker Michael Boley.
The Giants also made last season difficult on themselves with a pair of losses to the Redskins.
Griffin has completed 113-of-161 passes (70.2 percent) for 1,343 yards, five touchdowns and two interceptions. He has rushed for an average of 63.2 yards per game and has a passer rating of 100.5
