This Thursday Night Football matchup is going to be an early divisional test for the Giants. Washington narrowly edged the G-Men out for the NFC East title in 2020, and then fell to Tom Brady and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in the Wild Card round. Jones has dominated the Football Team so far in his young career, going 4-0 against them over his first two seasons. The Giants’ quarterback needs to utilize the weapons he has to torch Washington’s secondary. Defensively, Patrick Graham must have a good game plan for slowing down Antonio Gibson. The Football Team’s second-year running back scored 11 touchdowns during his impressive rookie season. Speaking of guys who burst onto the scene in 2020, Chase Young could be a major problem for the Giants’ offensive line in this matchup.
