Washington Redskins vs. New York Giants Details
New York Giants vs. Washington Redskins
One of the premier rivalries in the NFL, the New York Giants and Washington Redskins routinely battle it out for the top spots in the NFC East. This rivalry dates back to the 1930s, when Washington was known as the Boston Braves, and has been contested nearly 200 times since its inception. Over the years, great players on both offense and defense have featured in this rivalry, with each team enjoying championship-level success at the expense of the other.
Key players in the history of this rivalry include two defensive standouts. Dexter Manley of the Redskins and Lawrence Taylor of the Giants were both known as some of the best players on the defensive side of the ball throughout their NFL careers, and helped elevate the rivalry during the 1980s. During the course of this rivalry, both teams have made five Super Bowl appearances.
Historic Giants vs. Redskins Games
The 1960s were not known as the golden age of scoring in professional football, but the Giants and Redskins combined for the highest scoring game in the history of the NFL in 1966, when they got together for a 72-41 game. The 113 points from both teams has managed to stand the test of time, resulting in more combined points than any game in the modern era, where more offense-friendly and quarterback-friendly rules reign supreme.
1985 was the year when the Giants and Skins played on Monday Night Football, with Lawrence Taylor's iconic sack of Joe Theismann being one of the more memorable moments in the history of Monday night games. The sack helped pave the way for the current climate in the NFL, where teams place a high priority on protecting the blind side of quarterbacks, to avoid situations similar to the one Washington found itself in on that fateful night. As a result, teams draft left tackles significantly higher than they do players at other positions on the offensive line.
In 2016, two future legends of the game squared off in another chapter of this rivalry, when Josh Norman and Odell Beckham renewed their personal rivalry that started when Norman was a member of the Carolina Panthers. Washington entered the late-September game without a win on the season, but got their first victory of the season in this contest despite over 100 yards receiving from the dynamic Beckham. Both Norman and Beckham should feature prominently in this rivalry for years to come.
