Jason Campbell goes "OW!" after a late first half sack. The Giants sacked Redskin QBs 5 times during the game. (www.nfl.com)
The Giants came out with fire, passion and defense on Monday night and thoroughly thrashed the Washington Redskins 45-12. The Redskins offense looked completely overmatched against the Giants defense, which clearly came to play. In the first quarter, the Giants had 25 offensive plays to Washington's three (3!) and had 139 yards gained compared to -3 yards. That was about how the game went. The only time the Redskins' offense showed any sign of life was when Todd Collins played for the last 00:45 of the first half. To tell the truth, I was afraid the Redskins would leave Collins in and he would hurt the Giants. Washington looked lifeless. Their situation is brutal; their coach, Jim Zorn, is a "Dead Man Coaching" and QB Jason Campbell seems to have regressed. The New York Giants must win their last two games and either Green Bay or Dallas lose one game for the Giants to make the playoffs.
