Last Week


Washington was never in last week’s 31-15 loss to the Chicago Bears. Safety Ha Ha Clinton-Dix of Chicago had a first-quarter pick-six and Taylor Gabriel caught three second-quarter touchdown passes from Mitch Trubisky before the Skins put up a field goal just before halftime. The Monsters of the Midway then went on cruise control in the second half. Additionally, the Skins couldn’t run against Chicago, gaining 69 yards on 21 carries as a team.


  • QB Case Keenum – 30/43 for 332 yards, two TDs, one interception, three fumbles (two lost).
  • WR Terry McLaurin – six catches for 70 yards and a TD.
  • WR Paul Richardson Jr. – eight catches for 83 yards, one TD
  • CB Josh Norman – four tackles, one sack, one pass defended.


The Giants picked up a 32-31 victory in Tampa Bay behind an unlikely hero. Rookie quarterback Daniel Jones made his first career start and had a heck of a coming out party. He both ran and threw for a pair of touchdowns. What made the performance even more special was that he did it without star running back Saquon Barkley, who missed a good part of the contest due to a high ankle sprain.

Big Blue’s defense was their usual sloppy selves. They allowed the Buccaneers 499 yards of total offense. Tampa QB Jameis Winston threw for 380 yards and three touchdowns. Receiver Mike Evans pulled in all three of Winston’s scores and total 180 yards. Most alarmingly Evans was matched up against arguably the New York Giants best defensive player from the first two weeks Janoris Jenkins. Evans made the Jackrabbit look like he belonged on a high school team rather than a top cover corner.

In the end, the Giants special teams proved to be a huge difference-maker. Bucs kicker Matt Gay missed two extra points, one of which was blocked by G-Men rookie Dexter Lawrence, as well as a potential game-winning 34-yard field goal as time expired.


  • QB Daniel Jones – 23/36 for 336 yards, and 2 TDs, four rushes for 28 yards, 2 TDs, 2 fumbles.
  • TE Evan Engram – six receptions, 113 yards, 1 TD
  • WR Sterling Shepard – seven catches, 100 yards, 1 TD, 2 rushes, 21 yards.
  • WR Darius Slayton – three catches, 82 yards.
  • DT Dexter Lawrence – two tackles, one sack, one blocked XPA.
