Giants v Redskins - Griffin's 1st Rematch

Time to start the long draw to Monday night.

There are so many reasons to be excited and nervous for this game it's amazing. But the one that peaks my interest, even more than a shot at the Division title, is the fact that this is Griffin's first rematch. We know he learns from his mistakes, but can he learn from his opponents' mistakes too? Will we hear him say "They did x in the first game, so we thought we could pull that play off this time". And on the flip side, how will the Giants game plan change, now that they have seen him, and the players have a sense of his cadence and approach. Does he have any subtle tells that the DLine might pick up on. Division games are intense because of the familiarity between the opponents, this time will be no different.

Then there is the "it's a big game factor". I think we all agree Griffin is showing himself to step up in big situations, and that no stage is too big. But what about the receivers, or Morris. Does Griffin's presence draw them to bigger and better plays, like it seems to be doing.

And we have the 11 day off factor. Did the team rest, do they come out fresh, or do they look out of sorts vs a Giants team coming off a HUGE Sunday night win of their own?

Finally some stats for your enjoyment:
AccuScore puts the Giants at a 50% to 49% win (26-25)
Offense
Total Yards NYG 369 WSH 385
Yards Passing NYG 255 WSH 222
Yards Rushing NYG 115 WSH 163
Defense
Yards Allowed NYG 367 WSH 391
Pass Yards NYG 253 WSH 301
Rush Yards NYG 114 WSH 89

Giants favored by 3, O/U 51 points

Fans will be rocking, and Fed Ex will be a homefield for the first time in a long time!

Re: Giants v Redskins - Griffin's 1st Rematch

We gave the Dwarfs all that they could handle the first time and we have a strong recent history against them. While you can't be too confident against the Dwarfs, I am relatively confident.

Also, I think Kai misses his first kick this week, I just hope it isn't the difference. No reason other than it's been too nice not having to worry about kicks lately.

Griffin, Morris and Forbath - three guys under 25 who will throwing the Giants down, running over them and then kicking their butts for about a decade or so.

This one is going to be another close game that is decided in the 4th quarter and a turnover. Hoping it is not us.

Didn't he miss one already? Or was it an extra point?

Odd thing to focus on.

Redskins win by limiting the Giants to Field Goals only.

Only missed one PAT, he's been really solid. Possibly because of the Viagra....

I've always worried about kicks no matter who the kicker.

Re: Giants v Redskins - Griffin's 1st Rematch

Cruz says Redskins 'couple pieces away'

I hate that little dancer!

NFC East Blog - ESPN

Bulletin board material:

"They're still a couple pieces away from actually being a contender, them being in legitimate talks for playoffs and things like that," Cruz said today on a conference call. "They're still a few pieces away whether it be defensively or wherever they are missing some pieces. But I think they've definitely -- they've got to be in the conversation. They've got a good team, they play good football, they hold the ball for a long time, and they really do some good things. So I definitely put them in that conversation, for sure."
