We know, we know: it's not Monday, it's Tuesday. But after yesterday's 17-16 loss to the Washington Redskins, we have a feeling the New York Giants and their fans are going to be feeling this hangover all week.
Robert Griffin III might be the biggest name in Washington, but it's the name Alfred Morris that the Giants should remember. The Giants defensive front was abused all night, pushed off the ball and out of lanes as Morris racked up 124 yards on 22 carries.
And despite the Redskins offense having absolutely no trouble moving the ball, the defense made enough plays to hold them to 17 points.
And the offense went out there and tripped over their own feet enough times to only score 16: more penalties than we can recall, dropped passes by Martellus Bennett and Victor Cruz, a missed field goal by Lawrence Tynes.
Ugh. The point is, the Giants have quickly gone from in being in firm control of the division to now only a single game ahead of the Dallas Cowboys and the Washington Redskins, and with a 3-3 division record are highly unlikely to win a tiebreaker.
So that means, the Giants have almost zero room for error. And that starts next week against the New Orleans Saints.
