This marks the 164th meeting between these teams. Washington owns a 65-94-4 record against the Giants all-time. New York won the last meeting 24-17 at FedEx Field on Dec. 1.
The Redskins will attempt to snap a seven-game losing streak and avoid going 3-13 for the first time since 1994 under Norv Turner. Washington last went 4-12 in 2009 in Jim Zorn’s final season at the helm.
The Redskins enter the game with a 3-12 record while the Giants own a 6-9 mark. While Washington has lost its last seven games, New York has won five of its last seven.
The Redskins average 21.9 points a game and the Giants 18.3.
Washington averages 378 yards per game on offense (239 passing, 138 rushing) while New York generates 309 (229 passing, 81 rushing). The Redskins give up 30.5 points and 359 yards per game (249 passing, 110 rushing) and the Giants give up 25.1 points and 338 yards (228 passing, 110 rushing).
This represents what likely is the final game of linebacker London Fletcher’s 16-year career. The 38-year-old Fletcher today will play in his 256th consecutive regular season game (the longest active streak in the NFL) while making his 215th consecutive start (the most in NFL history by a linebacker).
Wide receiver Pierre Garcon is coming off an 11-catch, 144-yard, one-touchdown performance against Dallas. Last week he set the Redskins record for receptions in a season (107), breaking Art Monk’s 29-year-old record.
Garcon’s 1,290 receiving yards this season rank seventh-most in franchise history. Garry Clark’s 1,340-yard campaign in 1991 ranks sixth, and Monk’s 1,372-yard 1984 season ranks fifth. Santana Moss owns the franchise record for single-season receiving yards with 1,483 (set in 2005).
The Redskins need 336 yards to reach the 6,000-yard mark this season. This would mark the first time in franchise history that Washington has had back-to-back 6,000-yard seasons. The Redskins previously amassed 6,000 yards of offense in 2012, 1989 and 1983.
Washington needs 137 yards of offense to total 11,932 over the last two seasons. That total would match the output of the 1988-89 seasons for the highest two-year compilation in franchise history.
Cornerback DeAngelo Hall, who leads the team with four interceptions this season, is seeking the 24th of his six seasons in Washington. That would move him into a tie with Ken Houston for ninth-most in team history.
Linebacker Ryan Kerrigan enters the game with 8.5 sacks needs one sack to set a new career high. With a sack, Kerrigan also would move into 10th place in team history with 24.5 for his career.
Fellow linebacker Brian Orakpo is inactive with a groin injury. Had he played, he stood two sacks away from setting a new career high (12) and would have moved into a tie with Ken Harvey for fourth place on the franchise history with 41.5.
Running back Alfred Morris enters the game one touchdown away from moving into 10th-place on the franchise list. Morris currently has 20 in two seasons. A 21st touchdown would tie him with Andy Farkas (1938-44 ) and Gerald Riggs (1989-1991).
Wide receiver Santana Moss needs one touchdown catch to record the 49th of his nine-year career as a Redskins player. He would tie former teammate Clinton Portis for ninth-most in team history.
