15 degrees, clear skies
Key Decision #1: (NYG leads 18-10/3rd & 2 WAS 22/2:26)
- Giants called a fake dive pitch play to pick up crucial first down that allowed them to run out the clock at the end of the game. Very nice play call here.
- Redskins charged with Delay of Game at 10:57 in 2nd quarter.
- Giants pass rush was effective for most of the game. Nice play calling and personnel usage to get pressure against QB Kirk Cousins, forcing TWO interceptions.
- Cold temperatures resulted in dropped passes for both teams. Giants did a better job of establishing the run, which is important in inclement weather. Credit to their play calling here.
