Giants' first loss under McAdoo a repeat of previous year
Sep 27 2016 by Johnny Bowman
On One Hand: Kirk Cousins cost Washington 3 points and maybe 7 points by holding the ball too long and taking a sack at the end of the first half, when Washington still had one timeout left. "Today is no different". I didn't get to the National Football League, and most of these guys didn't get to the National Football League, because they're mentally weak or they're unable to ride the highs or the lows. "We have total faith that he'll get the job done".
The Redskins, who have the winless Cleveland Browns on tap next weekend, still have a lot of work ahead. "We wish him a speedy recovery". He did defend eight passes for the team previous year in a limited role, and his experience could be huge for the secondary. "People want to count people out after a couple games, but he is a good quarterback and they are a good team".
Orleans Darkwa had career highs in rushing attempts (10) and yards (53) and scored on a 2-yard run in the second quarter. You can't have the turnovers; you can't have the penalties. "Just the personal fouls, they were costly". Washington would drive down all the way to the Giants' 4 yard line, but some questionable playcalling by Jay Gruden was made and the half ended with no points put up by Washington after the fumble. "We got to play smart". The Giants face two more playoff teams in the undefeated Minnesota Vikings and the Aaron Rodgers-led Green Bay Packers.
The first of two meetings between Josh Norman and Odell Beckham Jr. this season resulted in a "win" for Beckham Jr., but a loss for his team.
Hall said he had felt fine after the game, but the worst-case scenario was confirmed Monday when an MRI exam revealed Hall did in fact sustain a torn right ACL, according to multiple reports. He showed some emotion on the field after making two consecutive catches against Norman in the fourth quarter, but he seemed agitated at times on the sideline. That's all it is.

There was a pick-six by Kwon Alexander in the first quarter and a fumble forced by Lavonte David that Chris Conte recovered. Rams head coach Jeff Fisher has to be elated with his teams ability to finish this game despite making numerous mistakes.

Petty Officer 3rd Class Nicole Groll said Coast Guard officials spoke by phone with Carman after he was rescued by the freighter. Santos, who said he previously represented him on another matter, said his office has contacted the Coast Guard and the U.S.
Ironically, Giants center Weston Richburg was tossed for picking up two unsportsmanlike penalties, the second after blocking Norman and saying something to him. "I feel for the player". "He's been a quality person since we got him". After a timeout, Manning looked for Vereen but the ball was intercepted by Su'a Cravens.
INJURIES GALORE: The Redskins lost four players to injuries in the game: C Kory Lichtensteiger (ankle), G Shawn Lauvao (calf), CB Bashaud Breeland (ankle) and S DeAngelo Hall (knee). Yet another defensive back, Dashaun Phillips, has a strained hamstring. This situation would also give the team a solid backup coverage guy (Blackmon) and a good run support backup (Deshazor Everett) so that will help to further balance the team. Dunbar, however, muffed a punt that led to Vereen's TD early in the game.
GIANTS DEFENSE: The Giants certainly didn't get their money's worth from the defense in this one, especially up front.
It's the second time in three seasons Hall suffered a season-ending injury. The secondary also allowed five passes of more than 24 yards.
My thoughts on the quality of our defense for the rest of this season.
