Despite the fact that the New York Giants are 0-5 heading into Sunday’s game against the Washington Football Team, they’re still in the mix to win the NFC East if they can turn things around.
The good news for the Giants is that they were in position to defeat the Dallas Cowboys last week despite their issues at the offensive line position.
This week the Giants’ defense have a favorable match up against a Washington team that’s been struggling to score. But Washington’s front seven could give Big Blue some issues.
New York released their final injury report on Friday and defensive back Adrian Colbert has been listed as questionable with a shoulder injury. Wide receiver Darius Slayton (foot) and defensive lineman Dexter Lawrence (knee) are also questionable.
Slayton had a huge game against the Dallas Cowboys last week after hauling in eight catches for 129 yards, which were both career highs for the explosive second-year receiver from Auburn. He should be good to go this week and in line for another big day against a Washington secondary that has struggled this season.
In other injury news, Giants’ linebacker David Mayo has been activated from injured reserve.
When it comes to Washington, guard Jason Garnett (illness), cornerback Greg Stroman (foot), tackle David Sharpe (illness) is also out and will miss Sunday’s game against the Giants. Defensive end Ryan Anderson is questionable with a back injury.
