The Redskins Win And They Are (Most Likely) In

The path to the playoffs doesn’t get much simpler for the Washington Redskins, as a victory against the New York Giants in Week 17 almost certainly sends them to the postseason. The only way the Redskins don’t make the playoffs with a win is if the Green Bay Packers and Detroit Lions play to a tie. Washington has traditionally struggled against New York, going 6-15 SU in their past 21, but did eke out a victory earlier this season.

Shark Bites
  • The UNDER is 7-3 in the past 10 between the Redskins and Giants.
  • The Giants are 1-9 SU in their last 10 games on the road against teams with winning records.
  • The Redskins are 10-3 ATS in their last 13 games.

The Redskins close out the season at home after spending four of the past five weeks on the road. Kirk Cousins has historically struggled against the Giants defense but had a great showing in Week 3, as he completed 21 of 35 passes for 296 yards with two touchdowns and no interceptions.

The Giants already clinched their first playoff berth in five years after getting some help last week. New York is locked in at the No. 5 seed in the NFC, so this game is for little more than pride. With that in mind, Ben McAdoo has not yet said if key players, including Eli Manning, will start on Sunday.
