The New York Giants and Washington Redskins squared off in a meaningless game at MetLife Stadium. The stadium was noticeably empty during the game. The Redskins were playing back up Kirk Cousins at quarterback. The Giants lost a lot of key players to injury during the game including quarterback Eli Manning and wide receiver Hakeem Nicks.
Most of the action took place in the second quarter. The Redskins got a pair of Kai Forbath to open and close the quarter. The Giants scored twice in the period as well. Manning threw a 24-yard touchdown pass to Jerrel Jernigan capping a six-play 75 yard drive. They added a Josh Brown field goal minutes later.
In the fourth quarter, Jernigan added a 49-yard touchdown run to extend the lead to 17-10. In the fourth quarter Brown added another field goal.
Manning finished the game completing 10 of 24 passes for 152 yards with a touchdown and interception. Curtis Painter came in for him and completed two of eight passes for 11 yards and one interception.
Cousins completed 19 of 49 passes for 169 yards and two interceptions.
