There won’t be any playoff implications at stake on Sunday when the Redskins visit the Giants, but it will complete the season for two franchises with plenty of questions to answer this offseason.
The two-win New York Giants are getting 3.5 points on their home field.
Washington beat Denver in Week 16 in another meaningless game between two teams long out of the playoff race. Kirk Cousins threw three touchdowns and gave his team a chance to finish .500 with eight wins, despite all of the problems this season.
The Redskins will play hard. Jay Gruden says his team is hopeful of finishing with eight wins so there shouldn’t be any worries about a less than sufficient effort.
But then the fun starts in the offseason There is speculation that the Redskins could fire Jay Gruden after missing the playoffs for the second season in a row. It doesn’t feel like he had a bad season this year, considering the decimation on the offensive line, the Terrell Pryor failure and the overall lack of a skill plays to surround Kirk Cousins.
A lot of those around the league think the Redskins would be wrong to cut Gruden loose, and that another team would quickly be a suitor if he were to hit the open market. There will certainly be enough vacancies around the league after Black Monday.
Then there’s Kirk Cousins, who is a free agent at the end of the season after playing the last two on the franchise tag. His numbers don’t reflect how well he’s played this season. He’s toughed out another full year, without much talent around him and not much time to throw.
Like Gruden, Cousins is under-appreciated and is probably better than anybody the ‘Skins would get to replace them. But it feels like change could be on the way in Washington, as it often is, and that would mean at least moving on from one of those two pillars.
New York Giants
So while the Redskins have motivation to go out and win this game, the Giants have much of the opposite. New York is sitting in the two slot for next summer’s NFL Draft, after Cleveland.
The Giants are going to have to assess the quarterback position after all the drama surrounding Eli Manning this season. First, they have to get a coach and most around the team believe they will search the outside to bring someone in, instead of promoting within.
Then they have to go about assessing quarterback options, options that will most likely come from the draft. There are two quarterbacks right at the top of the board from California, one USC, one UCLA. Most believe the Giants will grab one of those guys, perhaps whoever Cleveland passes on.
Of course, that plan is nixed if they win this week and the Colts end up getting the second pick. With Andrew Luck’s health complications, Indianapolis could be in the market for an arm too.
So Giants fans know what is at stake. It can’t be nice to play in front of a home crowd that truly doesn’t want you to win the game. But the last terrible thing that can happen to the Giants this season would be messing this up with a meaningless win.
