The New York Giants went toe-to-toe with their division rivals, the Washington Football Team, and came up short due to a number of missed opportunities.

Ultimately, the Thursday night showdown will be remembered for an offsides penalty by Dexter Lawrence that gave Washington a second chance at a game-winning field goal.

With five seconds left, Dexter Lawrence jumped offsides on a missed field goal attempt by Washington kicker Dustin Hopkins. This, of course, gave Washington a second chance at the game winning kick, ultimately costing Big Blue the game.

Injuries

Brad Mills-USA TODAY Sports

Nick Gates went down with a gruesome lower leg injury in the first quarter of the game. The injury to possibly the Giants' best lineman is a tough on for the G-Men to swallow going forward. Gates was a feel good story who earned his way up the ranks after being an undrafted free agent in 2018. The Giants officially announced that it was a lower leg fracture. Gates is done for the season.

What's next?
