Giants At Redskins: Divisional Rivals Clash In NFL Season Opener

There is only one sure-fire way to make it to the highly competitive NFL Playoffs each year and that's by winning your division. The New York Giants and Washington Redskins will try to get a leg up on doing just that in the NFC East when they meet at Fed Ex Field in Washington Sunday afternoon. Expectations are somewhat modest for both clubs this year, but for Tom Coughlin's bunch, the goal is a return trip to the postseason even though they'll be going to battle with ten rookies on the roster.

Let's continue our pregame coverage of the Giants' Week 1 matchup with the Skins with a look at the two historic rivals' series history, as well as a spattering of 2010 team and individual stats for both clubs.
