Sunday NFL Football Analysis: The Washington Redskins and New York Giants are the last two champions of the NFC East but the 2013 campaign hasn’t  been nearly as kind to these two teams.  These teams last met in late December of last season to decide the division’s champion but the mood will be very different this time around.  New York will try to move on after its playoff hopes were dealt a fatal blow in a 24-21 loss to the Cowboys, who have swept both games from the Giants this season.  The Giants will get their first look at the 2013 version of Robert Griffin III, which has not had nearly as much success as he did in 2012.  Griffin rushed for 815 yards and seven touchdowns as a rookie but only has 250 with no scores this season after having extensive knee surgery in the off season.  Griffin had a 105.9 passer rating against New York in last season’s series split. He threw for three scores and ran for 161 yards on 14 attempts.  He may not have to worry much about a once-feared Giants pass rush that has produced 18 sacks for the NFL’s second-lowest total ahead of only Jacksonville.  Griffin’s Redskins were held to a season-low 190 yards of total offense Monday.  Their defense has yielded 37 touchdowns to match Minnesota for the league’s highest total but could be buoyed by an injury-plagued Giants’ unit coming to town.  Eli Manning is having a horrific season of his own with a 72.5 passer rating, the worst since his rookie year, with 17 interceptions.  The Giants have also started six different running backs this season.  Wide receiver Hakeem Nicks missed last Sunday’s game with an abdominal injury but practiced last Friday and is probably while Victor Cruz has gone seven straight games without a score.  Giants Jason Pierre Paul, corner Trumaine McBride and running back Brandon Jacobs will all also miss this game.  The Giants are too injured and too devastated to compete against an Robert Griffin III is looking to prove himself.

New York Giants at Washington Redskins Game Prediction: 29-20 Redskins
What to expect in this NFL Football match up: Robert Griffin III is trying to prove to Washington’s fans and management that he is the answer to their future at quarterback.  He will come out and play well and look good against the Giants very injured defense.  The Giant’s offense will be reeling after eliminating their playoff chances against the Cowboys last week and with their third string running back combined with the inevitible Eli Manning tunrovers, this game will be over by the time the fourth quarter starts.
