Sunday Night Football this week brings us a pivotal NFC East match up between the New York Giants and the Washington Redskins. Both teams aren’t having the greatest of seasons as Washington comes in at 3-8 on the season, while the Giants are 4-7.
So, it’s essential for both teams to get the much-needed victory here, if for nothing else than a huge confidence boost.
Tonight, the Redskins were the first to strike, and they did so early.
Robert Griffin III and the Redskins offense got things kicked off by marching down the field on a 73 yard drive in 14 plays, which was capped off by this one-yard touchdown run by running back Alfred Morris:
That was a great start for this Redskins team that has been clamoring for some success on this offense. Morris made his name last season with his incredible performances and importance to this unit, so it’s a good sign to see this to begin such an important game.
Now, let’s just see if they can keep it up.
