Washington Football Team vs New York Giants Predictions: Are the Giants Improving at all?

The New York Giants will welcome in an NFC East rival in the Washington Football Team to MetLife Stadium. This will be the final game for the New York Giants as the team is currently 4-12 on the season. Head coach Joe Judge is likely returning next season with quarterback Daniel Jones, but the more the Giants finish out the season, the more embarrassing it gets for Judge.

On the other hand, Washington has been eliminated from playoff contention too. So this game really doesn't have much meaning other than guys playing and fighting for a job next season.

Here are our picks and predictions for the NFC East matchup between the Washington Football Team and New York Giants.

Washington Football Team vs New York Giants Prediction

Last week, the New York Giants fell down two scores not even halfway into the first quarter to the Chicago Bears. Eventually, the Giants ended up losing to a bad Bears team, 29-3. The Giants have now allowed 20 or more points in each of their last five games and have scored 10 or fewer points in four of those five games.

It's been a disaster for the Giants without Daniel Jones. Maybe Jones is good and he's just not surrounded by anyone who cares. Because backups Mike Glennon and Jake Fromm haven't been able to figure out anything in the second half of the season.

The offense scored three points on a night where top running back Saquan Barkley achieved over 100 yards rushing. It's just not working out in New York.

Meanwhile, Washington has been streaky throughout the season. Washington started the season off slow, turned it on in the middle of the season, and then lost its last four to NFC opponents. When you do that, it's extremely hard to make the postseason and Washington learned that the hard way.

Washington's defense has allowed 20 or more points in each of their last four losses while the Giants have allowed at least 20 points in each of their last five games.

But can we trust either offense to do much of anything? I'd be able to trust the Washington offense a little bit more than New York. The Giants will still have to send out a backup quarterback to finish the season and he'll be throwing too Kenny Golladay and a bunch of no-names if the injured list stays intact.

Still, if the total for this game is sitting at 38.5, between both of these brutal defenses, I think we can get points. If Glennon starts, I've got faith that he could eventually throw a pick-six or score a garbage-time touchdown like he seems to always do. So therefore, give me the over 38.5 in this contest. It's not going to be pretty, but we'll get there.
