Redskins at Giants 9/29/19 - NFL Picks & Predictions

Last Updated: 09/24/2019 at 7:38 AM ET

On Sunday, the Washington Redskins visit MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, New Jersey to play an NFC East showdown with the New York Giants. The Redskins fell to 0-3 on the season following their 31-15 loss to the Chicago Bears on Monday Night Football. Case Keenum committed five turnovers that included three interceptions and two fumbles. Keenum threw for 331 yards and a pair of touchdowns, but the Redskins were never in the game.

New York improved to 1-2 on the season following its rally to beat the Tampa Bay Buccaneers 32-31 on Sunday. Daniel Jones rallied the Giants in his first start at quarterback after trailing by 18 points at the half. The win was tempered a bit by the loss of running back Saquon Barkley who hurt his ankle and is expected to miss 6 to 8 weeks. Jones did not throw an interception but lost two fumbles in his debut.

Washington quarterback Case Keenum has thrown for 933 yards, seven touchdowns and three interceptions. The leading rusher for the Redskins is Adrian Peterson with 62 yards. Terry McLaurin leads all Redskins receivers with 257 yards and three touchdowns. Landon Collins leads the Redskins in tackles with 26.

Giants starting quarterback Daniel Jones has thrown for 353 yards and two touchdowns. The leading rusher for the Giants is Saquon Barkley with 237 yards and one touchdown. Evan Engram leads all receivers with 277 yards and two touchdowns. Antoine Bethea leads the Giants in tackles with 26.

The loss of running back Saquon Barkley by the Giants could be the biggest factor in the outcome of this matchup. The Giants need to establish a running game to help protect Daniel Jones in the pocket on passing downs and without Barkley will find that hard to accomplish. Case Keenum has thrown for over 900 yards and seven TDs through three weeks for Washington and look for him to lead the Redskins to the win. Final Score Prediction, Washington Redskins win and cover ATS 30-23.
