Giants up 10-0 at the 2 minute warning.

I expect the Giants to start using subs in second half though. A win does nothing for their playoff spot.

I'm not so sure they will.  The Giants want to win this game and prevent the Redskins from making the playoffs.

So would we rather play a really solid Giants team at home next week or play a weaker Seattle team in Seattle?  Think I'd rather avoid the Seahawks but the Giants are rolling.

Well, the Packers are rolling too.  Giants look good though.

Personally, I would take the Giants and the home game just because that means if we don't win the Super Bowl at least we have the division title.  A consolation prize, but being unable to win the NFC North two years in a row would be humiating.

I'd like to beat the Giants to exorcise demons of past playoffs.

I cant tell if the Giants have started playing as if they'd like the season to be over - or - Washington suddenly realized how close the season's end was. Whichever, its 10-10 and the Skins have all the "Mo"

Late drive to put the Giants up 13-10.

Going to come down to the wire.

Huge interception for DRC.  That should wrap it up.

I was hoping Washington would win. The playoffs would have started tonight. Still want the home game and if San Francisco pulls out the miracle, we would play the Lions again next week.

Interesting that Riley Rieff is out and was not on the injury report all week.

SF made it interesting - but not to be :(
So lets kick DET's ass - take the North - go home to beat the Gints.

If it gets out of hand would either team start to plan for next week and remove star players.
