The Washington Football Team is back, and hoping to turn the momentum from their last win into another victory.
The Washington Football Team has a lot going for them this week. They’re getting healthier across the board. They’re well-rested after a much-needed bye week. And they’re coming off their best game of the season, in which they dominated the hapless Cowboys by a score of 25-3.
The New York Giants won’t be that same hapless opponent; on Monday, they competed to the final whistle with the 6-2 Tampa Bay Buccaneers, and while their offense has plenty of questions, their defense will again look to make life uncomfortable for quarterback Kyle Allen and offensive coordinator Scott Turner.
Perhaps one of the difference-making factors in this game will be motivation. At 1-7, the Giants are veering out of the battle for the NFC East, but at 2-5, Washington is just a game and a half back from the vulnerable Eagles.

For Washington, a division championship, albeit in a bad division, is still reasonably within reach, and with a weak stretch in the schedule on deck, Washington can gain some ground. But it has to start today, against the New York Giants.
The game will be played at FedEx Field in Landover, Maryland, and for the first time this season, a limited number of fans will be allowed to attend. If you’re not one of those select few, you can watch the game live on FOX Sports, and if you’d prefer to stream on your mobile device, you can also watch either via NFL Game Pass or FuboTV.
Over two weeks, we’ve had a lot of time to write, not only about this game, but also the long-term implications of the coming closing stretch and the 2020 season as a whole. Check below with some of our pregame links for Week 9!
