Dwayne Haskins and Landon Collins came up short via revenge as the New York Giants knock off the Washington Redskins in Week 4.

  • New York Giants 24 (2-2)
  • Washington Redskins 3 (0-4)
  • NFL, Week 4, Final, Box Score
  • MetLife Stadium, East Rutherford, NJ

Dwayne Haskins and Landon Collins had an awful lot to say about the New York Giants and Dave Gettleman this past spring. How dare Big Blue select Daniel Jones No. 6 overall in the 2019 NFL Draft. How dare the organization trade away its strong safety.

It all came to a stop when Haskins replaced ineffective starter Case Keenum early in Week 4 play. Everything the Ohio State product wanted was right there in front of him, staring him in the face. There he was, the local boy, taking his first NFL snaps at MetLife Stadium.

Unfortunately for Haskins and the Washington Redskins, the only thing sweeter than revenge is when revenge is completely stymied.

Oftentimes, the greatest strategy is to just shut up and play.

Gettleman’s Giants are now 2-2 after knocking off the hapless Redskins, 24-3.

Wayne Gallman enjoyed a day while replacing the injured Saquon Barkley. Gallman tallied 63 yards and two scores on the day. His first came through the air, courtesy of a Daniel Jones dump off in the flat.

His second came by way of a goalline situation as the much-improved Jints offensive line helped pave the way.

Jones, making his first home start, executed a solid brand of quarterback play. Finishing 23 of 31 for 225 yards and one score, the kid is now 2-0 in his young career. He also threw two interceptions.

Defensively, James Bettcher’s group put forth one of its best efforts under the former Arizona Cardinals defensive coordinator. Jabrill Peppers, who was traded for another man who just couldn’t stop his mouth last spring, Odell Beckham Jr., took one to the house after intercepting young Haskins.

Haskins finished with a porous stat line of 9-for-17 for 117 yards and three interceptions.

Elsewhere, Sterling Shepard led all Giants receivers with 76 yards on seven receptions. Evan Engram finished with 54 yards on four grabs.

The suddenly surging 2-2 New York Giants will next welcome in the Minnesota Vikings to MetLife Stadium for Week 5 play next Sunday. Landon Collins, Dwayne Haskins and the Washington Redskins fall to 0-4 on the season.
