News you need to know
From the upgrade/downgrade report (Mon Nov 23): Sometimes being in the old uniform can bring back the old level of play. Ask James Jones. You never know.
General News (Wed Nov 25): is learning the team's offense in practice but said the task hasn't been that tough. He said he has worked with both the scout team and the offense during practice. It shouldn't take Nicks long to get up to speed since he's back with his old team. He already has strong chemistry with Eli Manning. Both Manning and Odell Beckham, Jr. said that Nicks has looked good in practice.
Week 12: at Washington Redskins
Mark and Joe say: Good matchup. Back in Week Three, the New York beat Washington 32-21. During the first clash, the Giants posted 23/32 for 279 yards passing, two TDs and zero interceptions thrown by Eli Manning. Rueben Randle (seven targets for 7/116/1 receiving) and Odell Beckham Jr. (nine for 7/79/1) had the TD receptions in that game. Two weeks ago (New York had a Week 11 bye), Manning found Beckham (12 targets for 4/104/1 receiving) and Randle (four for 3/51/0) quite a bit against the Patriots, so he still has those guys around heading into the stretch run for the playoffs. Also contributing: Dwayne Harris (nine for 6/82/1), and Will Tye (seven for 5/56/0, in for Larry Donnell who had a nagging neck injury prior to declaring himself back to 100% healthy during the bye). The Giants should be in good shape for this divisional fight as they have been relatively healthy this year in this phase of the game. The Washington pass D is ranked 12th in the NFL averaging 234.1 net yards allowed per game, with 20 passing scores handed out over 10 games and just six interceptions during that span (tied for 22nd in the NFL). They are currently 27th in the NFL with 17 sacks. They are among the top-ten most generous with fantasy points in this phase over the past four weeks, with wide receivers earning 28.1 per game (three games, eighth-most in the NFL); tight ends seeing 6.2 (23rd in the NFL for that span); and quarterbacks gaining 24.1 (fifth-most in the league). Just last week Cam Newton smashed this defense for 21/34 yielding 226 net passing yards, five passing scores and zero interceptions thrown. Advantage, New York.
