The Washington Football Team and the Giants are fighting for their first win of the 2021 tonight on “Thursday Night Football.”
After Ryan Fitzpatrick’s hip injury on Sunday, Washington’s Taylor Heinicke will make his first start since the 2020 NFL playoffs. Heinicke stepped in for Fitzpatrick against the Chargers, completing 11 of 15 passes for a total of 122 yards and a touchdown.
Giants quarterback Daniel Jones still needs to prove himself worthy of staying with the Giants after Sunday’s loss to the Broncos. Saquon Barkley’s performance last week was another letdown for the Giants — he rushed for just 26 yards on 10 carries and was questionable Thursday with a knee injury.
Washington has lost to the Giants in its last five meetings, but enters Week 2 as a 3.5-point favorite in the NFC East matchup.
