Only one NFC East team won Week 1 of the 2021 NFL season – that’s right, the Philadelphia Eagles – but at least one other team in the division should add a win in week 2 when the Washington football team hosts the New York Giants on Thursday night football.
The Giants lead the all-time series between these teams 104-68-4 and have won the last five meetings, the most recent of which in early November 2020, 23-20.
Washington suffered a heavy blow early in its first game of the season, with starting quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick knocked out of the game and ultimately placed on IR with a hip subluxation. The veteran is expected to miss 6-8 weeks and the football team’s offense is now in the hands of Taylor Heinicke.
Here’s everything you need to know about tonight’s game.
