Washington is alone in first place in the NFC East; New York is alone in last.
The two get together for a classic divisional showdown at the Meadowlands on the Sunday afternoon of October.
Washington defeated Dallas by the narrowest of margins on Sunday evening. Dallas had the chance to tie the game and force overtime at the buzzer but Brett Maher’s 52-yard field goal attempt hit the left upright and bounced out.
Maher’s attempt would have been good from 47, which was where it would have been, had the official not flagged Dallas’ long-snapper for moving the ball before it was snapped. The five-yard penalty pushed the attempt back to 52 and made the difference in the result.
Redskins fans have learned recently that these are games that don’t go their way, but this season has been different. Washington has won a number of close games, more often than not by relying on its defense.
That defense worked the lead up to ten in the second half by forcing a Dak Prescott fumble on the goal-line and scoring on the recovery. Ryan Kerrigan made the hit.
But all day, it zeroed in on Ezekiel Elliott, who rushed just fifteen times for thirty-three yards. I would have to imagine the ‘Skins will attempt to do the same with Saquon Barkley on this Sunday.
New York Giants
The Giants haven’t played yet in Week 7. They’re in action on Monday night against the Falcons and will travel home after to begin preparing for Washington. Keep an eye on what happens tonight with injuries and performance.
Barkley is coming off of his second 100-yard game of the season and his first since Week 1. He averaged exactly ten yards a pop, rushing thirteen times for 130 yards. He also caught nine balls for ninety-nine yards and scored for the fourth consecutive week. That’s a big fantasy day if you play PPR.
I can’t imagine Barkley has that sort of freedom in this game so, from a fantasy perspective, I’m thinking the Giants receivers could be a decent cheap play that many may not make. I could see one of them making one big play over the top that would make them worth their asking price in daily fantasy.
From a betting perspective, I see this one being fairly low-scoring and close because those are the sorts of games Washington has been playing all season. The Redskins have been missing Paul Richardson, Jamison Crowder and Chris Thompson but they’re on the way back soon. Keep an eye on their status. If they’re all still out again, it’s definitely going low.

4* Free NFL Betting Prediction: I just told you.
Like I said, low-scoring and close. I don’t think I’d play New York at just +3 but a +4 or +4.5 would begin to tempt me. A total in the low-40s feels right but all of this depends slightly on some of those Washington skill players playing or not.
