NFL Week 17: Giants @ Redskins

This season has been somewhat of a roller coaster ride for the New York Giants as they have been considered to be one of the best teams at times this year and also a bit of a disappointment at other times.

The Giants are no doubt a talented football team on both sides of ball, but have struggled to play consistently well from time to time and have been hit with two devastating losses over the last two weeks of the season.

As if losing to the division rival Philadelphia Eagles in the final seconds of the fourth quarter on a DeSean Jackson punt return touchdown wasn’t bad enough, the following week the New York Giants were absolutely dominated from start to finish against a banged up Green Bay Packers team that lit them up for 45 points.

Obviously, both of these games work big wake-up call for this once playoff bound team as they realized things aren’t going get any easier from here on out. Not only did they lose the division title to the Eagles, but they might have also lost their chance at the playoffs as they will need a few scenarios to go their way in the final week of the NFL regular season in order to make it into the postseason.

Fortunately, the New York Giants are more than capable of winning their game against the division rival Washington Redskins this weekend, but will need to see the Green Bay Packers fall to the Chicago Bears in order to clinch a Wild-card spot in the NFC Conference.

So beating the lowly Redskins will most likely be fairly easy for Eli Manning and company, but the Packers falling to the Bears is something they will definitely keep their eye on as I can’t see Aaron Rogers and his squad losing a must win situation like that.

The beautiful thing about NFL football is that anything can happen at any time and even if you have the slightest chance of making the playoffs if not unheard of to see multiple scenarios go your way in the last week of the NFL regular season.

As of right now, the New York Giants have been given a -4 point spread heading into their showdown with the division rival Washington Redskins.

Personally, I believe that’s ridiculous as the Redskins have one of the worst defenses in the NFL this season and will have absolutely nothing to play for coming into this game. Along with Mike Shanahan’s defense being among the worst in the league, their offense is a much better even though Rex Grossman has given them a bit more punch at the quarterback position.

It’s extremely hard to say that there are any true locks when it comes to picking winners in NFL matchups, but I would say this is definitely one of them as the New York Giants will almost certainly dominate the Washington Redskins from start to finish while covering the -4 spread with ease.
