Redskins-Giants Live Updates: Week 4 score, highlights, stats, analysis

Redskins-Giants Live Updates: Week 4 score, highlights, stats, analysis

It's Week 4 of the 2019 NFL regular season, and the Washington Redskins (0-3) already face their second "must-win" opportunity of the year as they travel up I-95 to take on their NFC East rival New York Giants (1-2).

Rookie quarterback Daniel Jones made his NFL debut in Week 3, leading the Giants to a 32-31 win over the Buccaneers. The former Duke Blue Devil threw for 336 yards and a pair of touchdowns without throwing an interception.

The Redskins defense struggled mightily in the first three weeks, but with Saquon Barkley on the shelf with an ankle injury, the focus of Sunday's game should be on the Redskins offense. It needs to be, because the Giants defense is porous and the Redskins will be without Terry McLaurin, Jordan Reed and Brandon Scherff.

The Week 4 game between the Redskins and Giants is set to kick off at 1 p.m. ET on FOX.

But the action begins at Noon with Redskins Kickoff Live on NBC Sports Washington and the MyTeams App. (Channel Finder)

Follow along below for our running live blog of the Redskins-Giants:


3:07 p.m.: Aaaaaand Haskins throws his very first interception, a 32-yard interception return for a touchdown by Jabril Peppers. That's some Michigan-Ohio State crime.

3:05 p.m.: Say this about the Redskins. They are down, but they are not out. A goal-line turnover gives the Redskins a chance to put points on the board in the last two minutes of the third quarter.

2:55 p.m.: Daniel Jones has really good mobillity in the pocket, and is able to pick up chunk yardage play-after-play when the Redskins are just about to get their hands on him.

2:50 p.m.: The Giants will start with the ball to begin the second half. The Redskins need to prevent third down conversions on defense and need to extend drives on offense. I know, I know. Easier said than done.

2:25 p.m.: The Giants have four chances from the goal line, but have to settle for a field goal after three failed pass attempts. 17-3 is your halftime score.

2:15 p.m.: Daniel Jones is regressing. The Rookie nearly threw his third INT of the game, but Josh Norman can't hold on to it and looks to have sustained another injury.

2:10 p.m.: Haskins looks poised under center, and nearly leads the Redskins into the end zone, but overthrows a tight window and the team will settle for the field goal.

2:05 p.m.: IT'S HAPPENING. Dwayne Haskins is going in as Redskins QB on the next series. Let the Dwayne Haskins era begin.

1:55 p.m.: Trey Quinn is wide open and in space, but Keenum puts the ball well in front of him. That's the second time today Keenum has missed a wide-open pass that would've resulted in a TD.

1:50 p.m.: The Redskins defense FINALLY makes a play. Quinton Dunbar, who has been dealing with medical issues for a while, makes a play after Tim Settle puts a licking on Daniel Jones.

1:45 p.m.: Another Redskins drive stalls because of penalties. Through 14 quarters of football, the Redskins have committed 34 penalties. That is not great at all. Tress Way on to punt, and as expected, it's a boomer. 

1:42 p.m.: Gallman scampers into the end zone for a TD. The Giants lead 14-0 early in the second quarter.

1:40 p.m.: Josh Norman exits the field under the help of trainers and is headed to the medical tent. It looks like he injured his knee trying to force Wayne Gallman out of bounds near the goal line.

1:35 p.m.: The first quarter is over and the Giants lead 7-0 and this game already feels like it is out of reach.

1:30 p.m.: The Redskins finally get some pressure on the quarterback, with Daron Payne recording the sack on third-and-9. But a holding penalty on Fabian Moreau negates the sack, and Sterling Shepard picks up 20 yards on the next play. This is going sideways already.

1:20 p.m.: The Redskins' second offensive series ends with a Tress Way punt, which was downed inside the 10-yard-line. Tress Way has been the only consistently good part of the Redskins' team for the past 12 months.

1:15 p.m.: The Giants carve up the Redskins' defense on the first drive. The eight-play, 32-yard drive ends in a TD pass from Daniel Jones to Wayne Gallman for six yards. Not a bad way to start your first game at home. But an awful way for the Redskins to start Week 4.

1:15 p.m.: The Giants carve up the Redskins' defense on the first drive. The eight-play, 32-yard drive ends in a TD pass from Daniel Jones to Wayne Gallman for six yards. Not a bad way to start your first game at home. But an awful way for the Redskins to start Week 4.

1:10 p.m.: Case Keenum was solid through two weeks. Since the Dallas game, however, he has been ... not great.

1:05 p.m.: Case Keenum throws an interception on third-and-5. Janoris Jenkins tipped Keenum's pass to Robert Davis, and Ryan Connelly is there for the INT. It's Daniel Jones time. Heck, it might be Dwayne Haskins time, too.

1:00 p.m.: The Giants won the toss and deferred. The Redskins will start on offense.

12:55 p.m.: The Redskins are wearing burgundy pants and white jerseys. The Giants are in gray pants and blue jerseys.

12:45 p.m.: Aint no pregame huddle like an Adrian Peterson pregame huddle.

12:30 p.m.: The Giants are -3 favorites at home today. The Giants have hit the over twice this season and are 1-2 against the spread. 

12:10 p.m.: Case Keenum will be under center for the Redskins in Week 4. But if things go sideways, it's not out of the realm of possibility that Dwayne Haskins could see the field. But don't compare Haskins to Daniel Jones, because the Redskins and Giants are in different places with their quarterback situation.

12:00 p.m.: It's Noon, which means you should turn on Redskins Kickoff Live on NBC Sports Washington or watch on the MyTeams App.

11:45 a.m.: Trent Williams, Derrius Guice, Brandon Scherff, Jordan Reed, and Terry McLaurin. Those are just a few of the names that won't be on the field for the Redskins today. Think about that for a second.

11:40 a.m.: Welcome to NBC Sports Washington's live updates of Week 4 between the Redskins and Giants. I don't know if you've heard, but this is a "must-win" for the Redskins. It's only Week 4. Sigh.

Redskins vs. Bears Monday Night Football Live Updates: Week 3 score, highlights, stats, analysis

Redskins vs. Bears Monday Night Football Live Updates: Week 3 score, highlights, stats, analysis

The Redskins face a 'must-win' situation in Week 3 of the 2019 NFL regular season. Following back-to-back NFC East division losses, the Redskins enter their first Monday Night Football appearance of the season winless, but with a great opportunity ahead of them.

The Chicago Bear (1-1) have an excellent defense, but a limited offense, which should help a Redskins team that has given up 910 yards of total offense at 63 points.

With a host of Redskins players sidelined with injuries, CB Quinton Dunbar and TE Jordan Reed the notable names, It's not going to be an easy task. But if the Redskins have any desire to stay in the early-season playoff race, a win on Monday night is a must.

The Week 3 game between the Redskins and Bears is set to kick off at 8:15 p.m. ET on ESPN.

But the action begins at 7:00 p.m. ET with Redskins Kickoff Live on NBC Sports Washington and the MyTeams App. (Channel Finder)

Follow along below for our running live blog of the Redskins-Bears.


9:13 p.m.: The Bears score the first offensive touchdown of the game on an uncontested pass from Mitchell Trubisky to a wide-open Taylor Gabriel for a 7-yard TD catch. This game already feels out of reach, and it's only 14-0 in the second quarter.

9:03 p.m.: And now center Chase Roullier is questionable for return with a knee injury. 

8:55 p.m.: Brandon Scherff, who was reportedly offered a new contract extension by the Redskins earlier today, is sidelined with an ankle injury and is questionable for return. No Bueno.

8:52 p.m.: Tony Bergstrom is now in at guard for Scherff because backup guard Wes Martin is inactive. No Bueno.

8:51 p.m: The Redskins get the ball back and after another near Case Keenum turnover, Brandon Scherff gets his leg rolled up on and has to be helped off the field. No Bueno.

8:41 p.m.: The Redskins nearly sack Mitchell Trubisky in the end zone for a safety, but the referee rules Trubisky down at the one-yard-line via a Matt Ioannidis sack. Apparently, when dealing with a sack in the end zone, the ball is spotted at the point of contact instead of where the QB hits the ground. That seems very wrong.

8:35 p.m.: The Redskins get the ball back, and the drive stalls again thanks to a monster sack from Khalil Mack. Jeremy Sprinkle missed the assignment. Not a great start for him. Not a great start for the Redskins.

8:29 p.m.: Case Keenum has a wide-open Jeremy Sprinkle, who promptly drops the ball with no one in sight. A play later, Keenum finds former Ha Ha Clinton-Dix who runs it in for the TD. Reminder: Clinton-Dix is a cornerback who plays for the Bears, and the pass was actually an interception, Keenum's first of the season. Reminder 2: Clinton-Dix has a not-so-great half season for the Redskins in 2018.

8:23 p.m.: The Bears get Mitchell Trubisky out of the pocket frequently, and are pushing all the action to the outside. Chicago picks up two first downs, but stalls out afte Montez Sweat sacks Trubisky on third down, the very first sack of Sweat's career.

8:00 p.m.: The Redskins are in white pants and burgundy jerseys. The Bears are in navy pants and white jerseys.

7:55 p.m.: An interesting subset of the game will be the Mitchell Trubisky vs. Cole Holcomb battle. The Bears QB and Redskins LB were roommates at North Carolina.

7:50 p.m.: Another DID YOU KNOW: The Redskins stink on Monday Night Football.

7:45 p.m.: This has very little do to with the game tonight, but is a fact we all should know: There is a Hooters at FedEx Field, and it's the largest Hooters in the entire world. #TheMoreYouKnow

7:40 p.m.: Is tonight a "must-win"? It's more than a must-win. The Redskins have reached the point of desperation. Read JP Finlay's pregame words.

7:35 p.m.: That's right. Jonathan Allen is back in the lineup. He might not be 100-percent healthy, but this is the biggest game of the early season, and the redskins need their best players on the field. Peep the full injury report prior to kick off.

7:30 p.m.: Welcome to the Monday Night Football edition of your 2019 Redskins-Bears live blog. Mitchell Trubisky, Khalil Mack and the Chicago Bears are in town to take on Case Keenum, Jonathan Allen and the Redskins in a "must-win" game. Yes, we realize it's only Week 3. But at 0-2 with the Giants and Patriots up next, the Redskins need to win this game.

Redskins reportedly offer Brandon Scherff contract extension

Redskins reportedly offer Brandon Scherff contract extension

The Washington Redskins are building for the future, and one of the team's most important building blocks is 27-year-old right guard Brandon Scherff.

The two-time Pro Bowler was selected by the Redskins with the No. 5 overall pick in the 2015 NFL Draft and has become the team's most important offensive lineman not named Trent Williams.

Prior to the start of the 2018 season, the team picked up the fifth-year option on Scherff worth $12.5 million, meaning the former Iowa Hawkeye will become a free agent at the end of the 2019 season. The Redskins have made it clear that they want to re-sign Scherff, but previous reports from NBC Sports Washington's JP Finlay indicate that the two sides continue to be far apart in negotiations.

That makes the Monday news that the team is reportedly offering a contract extension all the more interesting. A deal worth more than $13 million per year is what is being reported, per the NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. 

"From what I understand about Brandon Scherff is that the Redskins have had some contact with him, some negotiations on a potential big-time long-term extension," Rapoport said Monday morning on NFL NOW, prior to the Redskins' Week 3 Monday Night Football game against the Chicago Bears.

 "But they really have not gotten very much off the ground despite the Redskins offering him a contract worth more than $13 million per year, which would put him about at the top of the guard market. Those conversations are going to continue but don't be surprised if Brandon Scherff goes toward free agency and becomes the highest-paid guard in the NFL going forward next offseason."

If the Redskins want to remain in the Trent Williams business, they will need to pony up for arguably the best left tackle in the NFL right now. After that, the focus should be on Scherff. At $12.5 million per year, Scherff remains behind Dallas' Zack Martin ($14 million per year, $40 million guaranteed), and Jacksonville's Andrew Norwell ($13.3 per year, $30 million guaranteed) as the highest-paid guards in the league.

The Redskins need to invest in their future, and in the NFL, there is no success without a stout offensive line. They have the personnel, but now they need to be able to keep them in-house.
