The New York Giants won their second game of 2019 on Sunday. Here are our three takeaway the 24-3 victory over Washington.

Two New York Giants wins. Even better, two New York Giants wins with rookie Daniel Jones at quarterback. Sunday, Big Blue soundly defeated the Washington Redskins 24-3 in front of their home fans at MetLife Stadium.

How the G-Men came into this one as only three-point favorites considering the total disarray Washington is in, has to be a pleasant surprise to those who put their money on the home team. The Skins had almost nothing for Big Blue all game. When Washington did manage to catch a break or build momentum, it ended quickly with a self-inflicted wound.

Touchdowns by Wayne Gallman on their first two drives of the game gave the New York Giants a 14-0 cushion. The first score came after a Skins turnover, barely a minute into the game when starter Case Keenum threw an interception to Giants linebacker Ryan Connelly off a tip at the Washington 32 yard line. The G-Men methodically moved the ball to the end zone in eight plays culminated by a six-yard TD catch by Gallman.

On their next possession, the G-Men were pinned down at there own six-yard line after a nice punt by Washington’s Tress Way, Jones went to work again taking his team down the field. The drive had a pair of big plays. The first was a 23-yard completion to Sterling Shepard on a quick slant. The second went for 24 yards when Gallman took a handoff around the right side to bring the ball to the three-yard line. Two plays later Gallman took a handoff up the gut for a one-yard touchdown.

The game bogged down from there as the Giants got sloppy. Jones threw interceptions on the New York Giants next two possessions. They scored a field goal at the end of the first half which was last of their offensive points. Giants safety Jabrill Peppers jumped a pass route near the end of the third quarter for a pick-six for the games final score.

Here are our three takeaways from the win:
