Giants vs. Washington Week 9 Prediction
Somehow the Washington Football Team still has an opportunity at 2-5 to win the NFC East but earning a win on Sunday against the Giants is paramount. Will Washington accomplish the feat as 2.5-point chalk or are the Giants a live dog after nearly pulling off the upset against the Bucs on Monday?

Daniel Jones completed 25-of-41 passes for 256 yards, two touchdowns, and two interceptions in the Giants' 25-23, Week 8 loss to the Bucs Monday night. He rushed for 20 yards on three attempts. Jones' 256 passing yards go down as his most since Week 1, but he was mostly bad in this one and should've thrown two or three more interceptions. Turnovers have always been Jones' problem, as he tends to make some of the dumbest decisions we see week in and week out at the quarterback position, constantly making idiotic throws into coverage. Darius Slayton bailed him out late in the fourth quarter on a drive where Jones ended it with a perfect throw to Golden Tate for a 19-yard score. Jones' throw on the ensuing two-point conversion attempt to tie the game, however, was way off the mark to Dion Lewis, who was open in the end zone. Jones just isn't very good and is probably flirting with getting benched. The Giants go to Washington in Week 9.
Washington Football Team DFS Spin
Kyle Allen completed 15-of-25 passes for 192 yards and two touchdowns in Washington's Week 7 25-3 win over Dallas. The Football Team took its foot off the gas in the second half, otherwise Allen would have had a much bigger yardage total against an inept Cowboys defense. Allen consistently looked for Terry McLaurin and Logan Thomas, both of whom will be solid weekly starts as long as Allen is under center. Allen shapes up as a good superflex start next week against the Giants.
