Giants Vs. Redskins: Game Day Overview

The New York Giants host the Washington Redskins today (1 p.m. ET/FOX) in a key game for New York as it tries to maintain control of the NFC East.

The Giants (7-6) can maintain their division lead with a victory. The Dallas Cowboys kept the pressure on the Giants Saturday night with a 31-15 victory over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

KEYS TO THE GAME: The Giants much-maligned and often-toasted secondary must control Washington quarterback Rex Grossmna, who has passed for 336 and 305 yards the last two times these teams played … The Giants also need to slow Washington running back Roy Helu, who has three straight 100+ yard rushing games … Finally, the Giants need to avoid the letdowns that cost them games earlier this season against the Seattle Seahawks and Philadelphia Eagles.

Here are more things to watch for today.

KEY INJURIES:
The Giants will again be without defensive end Osi Umenyiora and starting center David Baas. Defensive end Justin Tuck is a game-time decision with a serious toe injury.

THE LINE: The Giants are seven-point favorites.
