New York is coming off its best win of the year, a 38-10 drubbing of the Green Bay Packers on Sunday Night Football at MetLife Stadium last weekend. After losing two straight to the Cincinnati Bengals and Pittsburgh Steelers, Big Blue seems to have rectified its issues, especially Manning.
As for the Redskins, Monday night represents a chance to get back into the playoff hunt, and the NFC East race, for that matter. Currently, Washington sits two games behind the Giants but could close the margin to one with a victory.
In their first encounter, New York was able to win on the strength of five Washington turnovers and a late Manning to Victor Cruz bomb.
Without question, the Giants will have their hands full in what is easily the most important game for the Redskins in the past five years.
