The Washington Redskins and New York Giants are spitting images of one another as they enter their week 17 final football game of a forgettable season. One of these underachieving teams will earn NFC East bragging rights when we watch Redskins vs Giants online free live streaming on Fox.
The Redskins and Giants both began the 2013 NFL season with high hopes of not only making the playoffs, but advancing deep into them. Instead both teams saw their franchise quarterbacks struggle mightily out of the game and injuries mount to the point where their respective seasons and any hopes of making the postseason were eventually done by the eighth game.
Washington (3-12) rode rookie quarterback Robert Griffin III into the playoffs last year and were not expecting him to define his own version of sophomore slump. Since tearing his ACL in last year’s playoffs, RG3 has been a shell of his former self, unable to move as fast out of the pocket and showing his decision making and throwing deficiencies when trying to operate within it.
Overall the Redskins have lost seven games in a row and will try to snap that streak before it can extend into next season. For the third straight game Kirk Cousins will be at quarterback as RG3 was shut down for the remainder of the year to avoid him suffering additional knee damage. Cousins is effectively auditioning for a job on another team and has played well in his limited time despite compiling an 0-2 record. Watch Giants vs Redskins online streaming live free on Fox today to see if Cousins can notch a win.
New York (6-9) appears to be on the verge of some significant changes to their lineup and coaching staff. They have been playing better of late, including knocking the Lions out of the playoffs with a 23-20 overtime win last week. When little else is going right it’s always fun to play the role of spoiler, and that’s exactly what Eli Manning and the Giants did to Detroit and their fans.
The Giants won their previous meeting with the Redskins a month ago by a score of 24-17 playing in Washington. They will wrap the 2013 season at home facing a quarterback they have never faced before and possibly playing in the final game with Justin Tuck and a few other notable Giants players on the roster. They will be hungry to go out on a winning note and carry over something positive into next season.
