Instant Analysis - The Redskins and Giants tied 14-14 at halftime

Giants vs. Redskins - 1st Half analysis.  The Redskins and Giants are tied 14-14 at halftime.  The Redskins started fast and Robert Griffin III looks good passing the ball.  The New York Giants got off to a slow start, but are picking up steam going into halftime.

First Quarter:

  • The Redskins start out the game in the Turbo offense.
  • The Redskins score a touchdown on their first drive for the first time on the entire season.  How is that possible?
  • The Giants start on offense with a three and out.  Great start by the Redskins defense.
  • RGIII tried to throw a block on a reverse and got hammered.  Not a very smart play.  The Redskins should eliminate any plays where RGIII might take punishment.
  • Brian Orakpo is having a big first quarter with a sack on Manning and tackle behind the line of scrimmage on Brown.

 

Second Quarter:

  • RGIII looking good in the pocket.  Great TD pass to Logan Paulsen
  • The Giants run right through the Redskins defense, as Peyton Hillis and Andre Brown both had big runs on the touchdown drive to make it 14-7 Redskins.
  • Robert Griffin III continues to look good in the pocket.
  • Alfred Morris has a couple of reception on the night.  It’s about time they get him involved in the passing game.
  • The Giants have begun to get Victor Cruz involved in the offense.
  • Besides that first sack by Brian Orakpo, the Redskins haven’t been able to get much pressure on Eli Manning.
  • The Giants tie the score on a Manning to Brandon Myers TD pass.  Looked much too easy.  Giants vs. Redskins.

The Redskins defense looked good initially against the Giants offense as they had an advantage with the Giants getting poor field position.  However, the Giants have gotten their running game going, and that is giving Eli Manning nice looks in the passing game off of play-action.
