NFC East showdown
LANDOVER, Md. (AP) — A pair of 1-2 NFC East rivals meet when Washington hosts the Giants in the Thursday night football game.
The Redskins offense has exploded for 75 points in the last two games under the direction of quarterback Kirk Cousins, who’s stepped in for the injured Robert Griffin III. Cousins’ 105.8 quarterback rating is fourth-best in the league.
Eli Manning turned things around in the win over Houston last week after a couple of dismal performances. He had 123.2 rating and no interceptions in Sunday’s win after a combined 69.2 rating and four picks in two losses.
Washington has lost seven straight to NFC East rivals.
