    Giants' Team Grades: Week 7 vs. Washington Redskins

    Giants' Team Grades: Week 7 vs. Washington Redskins


    Excerpt: "Sunday, October 21st 2012

    Final Score: Washington Redskins 23 New York Giants: 27

    Giants Team Grades

    It wasn’t the prettiest of games, but the Giants were able to pull out the win against the Redskins Sunday afternoon 27-23 for their first division victory of the season. The Giants witnessed what makes Redskins new quarterback Robert Griffin III so special, but in the end saw what makes their own quarterback in Eli Manning one of the best in the NFL.

    Passing Offense Grade: B-

    Eli Manning had a rough go at it for most of the game against the Redskins, struggling for the better part of the game. The Redskins have given Manning problems throughout his career, has they are the only team that Manning has more interceptions thrown than touchdowns with at least 5 games played against; that trend continued Sunday when Manning threw two interceptions compared to one touchdown.Manning missed Victor Cruz in the first half for what would have been a touchdown and later over threw him on a bomb again. But they connected when it mattered with less than two minutes left in the game, when they connected for a 77-yard game winning touchdown. Martellus Bennett and Hakeem Nicks did some damage as well, both reeling in five receptions.

    Rushing Offense Grade: C+It was tough sledding for the Giants running game against the Redskins, as they were able to only total 64 yards on 19 attempts. The workload for Ahmad Bradshaw was limited, as he gained 43 yards on 12 carries and scoring one touchdown. Bradshaw was visibly upset at points in the game, getting into heated conversations with head coach Tom Coughlin and running backs coach Jerald Ingram. Andre Brown returned to the lineup after a one week absence because of a concussion and scored a touchdown of his own to go along with his 17 yards on five rushes." Read more...

    the passing defense should be no less than a D for allowing those three 4th down conversions!
