Winners

Kirk Cousins — On the first drive, Cousins floated an out to the left sideline. Watching live, it appeared the Giants CB cut on the ball and caught it going the other way for a pick-six. In that moment, things had gone to pot real quick, just like the last Giants game. Fortunately, he dropped the ball. Cousins went on to complete 69% of his passes for 302 yards and a 114 QB rating. Wish he’d play like this on the road. (His rating at home is a Brady-esque 111; on the road it’s a Foles-esque 71.)

Quinton DunbarThe undrafted WR-turned-CB made a big INT in the end zone, then shrugged off a finger injury in which the bone was sticking out. NO BIG DEAL.

Alfred Morris — Nothing spectacular, but he was well-fed (23 carries). It’s good when he’s well-fed.

Matt Jones — No fumbles! Also took a screen pass 45 yards.

The O-line — Did you see the blocking on that 45-yard screen? Also gave up no sacks and got the run game going a little bit.

Bashaud Breeland — Odell Beckham Jr. got his, but Breeland went toe-to-toe with the NFL’s best.

The whole dang secondary — Not sure how this patchwork bunch did it, but they picked Eli Manning three times, holding him scoreless through three.

Ryan Kerrigan — Looked great and picked up two sacks. Now on pace for 9.5, exactly in line with his 2011-14 average.

DeSean JacksonScored a 63-yard TD, after backpedaling across the goal line, as one does.

ODBSuch a bad man.

Jay Gruden — It’s December, and the Redskins are in first place. Holy shit.

Losers

Medium

Jordan Reed — Three penalties in the first quarter. Also eight catches on nine targets for 98 yards. Now has a career high in yards (541) and is catching 73% of balls thrown his way.

Special teams — Allowed a blocked FG. It’s been awhile since they gave us much to complain about.

  1. You forgot a loser – D. Hall! Man, if the only way you can tackle is by facemask and horse collar – QUIT! Over the top help (which he’s supposed to be providing) was totally void in the two last Giant TD drives (though ODB’s was just ODB magic). Safety D. Hall = Corner D. Hall = WORTHLESS! Almost cost ’em the game! He need to retire just like his old coach Beamer!

      1. He is clearly still hurt, and old, and gutting it out because the secondary is decimated and we have literally no other option. I refuse to give him a negative for that.

  2. Of note: SKINS are 3-0 whenever someone yells “You like THAT? YOU like that!” after a game.

    Hmmmm… causation or correlation?
