Only one NFC East team got a win in Week 1 of the 2021 NFL season — that’s right, the Philadelphia Eagles — but at least one other team in the division should add a win in Week 2 when the Washington Football Team hosts the New York Giants on Thursday Night Football.
The Giants lead the all-time series between these teams 104-68-4, and have won the past five meetings, including most recently in early-November 2020, 23-20.
Washington suffered a big blow early in their season opener with starting quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick being knocked out of the game and eventually being placed on IR with a hip subluxation. The veteran is expected to miss 6-8 weeks and Football Team’s offense is now in the hands of Taylor Heinicke.
