New York Giants vs Washington Redskins 12/22/2019
New York Giants
New York Giants notched a win against fellow cellar-dweller Miami Dolphins. They concluded with a dominant 36-20 endgame score. QB Eli Manning reaped good stats, going for 20/28 with 283 air yards. He was able to connect 2 thrown TDs and 3 interceptions. Saquon Barkley also took advantage of the relatively easy matchup. He carried the ball 24 times across 112 yards. He got the icing on the cake with 2 rushing TDs. Sterling Shepard made a good contribution as the foremost receiver. He caught the ball 9 times, helping the team cover 111 yards.
The Giants transformed their matchup into a shoot-em-up. The team rushed for 33 out of 63 plays. They also initiated 24 first downs with only 4 penalties. The Giants’ main asset was their throw defense. They limited the opponent to only 56% throw completion. However, their defensive line faltered against rush attacks. The enemy got through with 25 runs.
The Giants won the battle of the yards. The advantage is negligible, however. The Giants were pegged at 412 yards’ worth of coverage, while the opponent settled for 384. What mattered most was the Giants’ yards-to-points conversion. The high accuracy granted them much-needed TDs.

The Redskins tried to reach the Philadelphia Eagles but fell short in their attempt. They lost the game with a 37-27 final score. QB Dwayne Haskins wasn’t deterred in doing an A-game though. He had good stats, going for 19/28 with 261 air yards plus 2 thrown TDs. Adrian Peterson had decent stats as well. The man on the ground carried the ball 16 times, notching in 66 yards plus a running TD. Terry McLaurin caught the ball 5 times, extending the team’s coverage by 101 yards.
The Redskins tried to emulate a non-stop offense but were stopped dead in their tracks. The opponent constricted their movements to only 23 rush attacks. The Redskins responded by being stubborn as they tried to throw their way for the remainder of their 51 plays. However, the Redskins forgot all about their defensive line. The opponent took advantage of this by going for a 70% throw completion rate plus a bonus of 28 rush attempts.
The Redskins lost the tale of the tape. They only covered 362 yards as opposed to their opponent’s 415. The clincher in this matchup, however, was the Redskins’ marked lack of accuracy. They weren’t able to take full advantage of their territory. They lacked tight and secure plays towards the line.
