The win was New York's second in a row, and rookie QB Daniel Jones's second win in as many tries. But following that win, the Giants went on a nine-game losing streak before an Eli Manning-led Giants team defeated the Dolphins last week.
The loss was Washington's fourth in a row, marking their worst start in close to two decades. After Washington lost the following week, they fired head coach Jay Gruden.
Redskins quarterback Dwayne Haskins saw his first NFL action in the Redskins' Week 4 loss to the Giants, a game the rookie would love to forget. In fact, he said on Wednesday he "throws up" when watching the film from that contest.
Haskins is coming off his best game as a pro, and will look to carry that momentum into this week's contest against the Giants.
Sunday's game also has a ton to do with draft position. If the season ended today, the Giants would select No. 3 overall, with Washington right behind them at No. 4. Assuming the Dolphins defeat the 1-12 Bengals this weekend, the loser of Sunday's Redskins-Giants contest would have a clear path to the No. 2 overall pick. So, in other words, the loser of Sunday's game is the winner of the Chase Young sweepstakes.
This week will also be the first matchup between Jones and Haskins as starters, as Jones is expected to return to action this week. Everyone remembers Haskins' reaction on draft night when the Giants selected Jones over him. This game means a lot to both rookies.
