Things To Look For

The New York Giants proved last week that they still have some fight in them as they kept the Kansas City Chiefs out of the end zone and grabbed a victory in overtime. For the second straight week, the Washington Redskins put at least 30 points on the board and came up short. Jay Gruden’s team is running out of time when it comes to the playoff race, especially in the highly-improved NFC. The ‘Skins’ defense must start doing its share if the team is to become a threat.
