Through 3 Quarters

Down four at the end of last quarter, the New York Giants have taken the lead. After three quarters neither team has the matchup in the bag, but the Giants lead 20-17 over the Washington Football Team. The finale is shaping up to be a lot like these teams' last head-to-head, which was decided by three.

New York has been led by QB Daniel Jones, who so far has passed for one TD and 216 yards on 25 attempts in addition to rushing for one TD and 82 yards. Jones has been efficient, with a passer rating of 165.80.

New York is struggling to protect the pocket and have allowed four sacks. They are going to have to protect Jones better if they want to hold on to their lead.

What to Know

The Washington Football Team haven't won a matchup against the New York Giants since Oct. 28 of 2018, but they'll be looking to end the drought Thursday. Washington and New York will face off in an NFC East battle at 8:20 p.m. ET at FedEx Field. Washington has the odds in their favor, so they'll need to guard against complacency.

Washington didn't finish too far behind, but the squad still lost 20-16 to the Los Angeles Chargers this past Sunday. No one had a standout game offensively for Washington, but they got scores from TE Logan Thomas and QB Taylor Heinicke. Heinicke ended up with a passer rating of 163.70.

Most of the squad's points came courtesy of special teams, which contributed ten. K Dustin Hopkins delivered a perfect 3-for-3 game.

Meanwhile, the Giants came up short against the Denver Broncos this past Sunday, falling 27-13. New York's loss shouldn't obscure the performances of WR Sterling Shepard, who caught seven passes for one TD and 113 yards, and QB Daniel Jones, who passed for one TD and 267 yards on 37 attempts in addition to punching in one rushing touchdown. Jones ended up with a passer rating of 129.

Both teams will surely be fighting tooth and nail to get back into the win column after losses last week. We'll see which team satisfies their hunger and which team leaves with an empty stomach.
