Redskins vs. Giants Week 16: Date, time, TV channel, live stream, how to watch

Redskins vs. Giants Week 16: Date, time, TV channel, live stream, how to watch

When the Redskins fell handily to the Giants in Week 4, things were a lot different for both squads.

The win was New York's second in a row, and rookie QB Daniel Jones's second win in as many tries. But following that win, the Giants went on a nine-game losing streak before an Eli Manning-led Giants team defeated the Dolphins last week.

The loss was Washington's fourth in a row, marking their worst start in close to two decades. After Washington lost the following week, they fired head coach Jay Gruden. 

Redskins quarterback Dwayne Haskins saw his first NFL action in the Redskins' Week 4 loss to the Giants, a game the rookie would love to forget. In fact, he said on Wednesday he "throws up" when watching the film from that contest.

Haskins is coming off his best game as a pro, and will look to carry that momentum into this week's contest against the Giants.

Sunday's game also has a ton to do with draft position. If the season ended today, the Giants would select No. 3 overall, with Washington right behind them at No. 4. Assuming the Dolphins defeat the 1-12 Bengals this weekend, the loser of Sunday's Redskins-Giants contest would have a clear path to the No. 2 overall pick. So, in other words, the loser of Sunday's game is the winner of the Chase Young sweepstakes.

This week will also be the first matchup between Jones and Haskins as starters, as Jones is expected to return to action this week. Everyone remembers Haskins' reaction on draft night when the Giants selected Jones over him. This game means a lot to both rookies.

As good as Chase Young can be, Jack Del Rio wants people to remember he's still just one player

As good as Chase Young can be, Jack Del Rio wants people to remember he's still just one player

As good as Chase Young could be for the Redskins both soon and long into the future, Jack Del Rio wants people to remember an important fact: Washington will still need to line up another 10 guys on defense.

The first question to start a Thursday Zoom call between the local media and the Burgundy and Gold's defensive coordinator had to do with how the team's No. 2 pick is handing the offseason so far. That allowed Del Rio to give some general praise of Young.

"He’s been paying attention; he’s been learning the system," the coach said. "I think the sky's the limit for him in terms of what he’ll be able to bring to us. We obviously have big designs, we think he’s a really good player, and we’re looking forward to getting him involved.”

A few inquiries later, though, Del Rio was asked how much Young's presence could change the entire unit. That's when he dropped his reality check.

"Well, I think the biggest thing is that he’s still just one player," he told reporters.

Yes, Young has all the makings of being a supremely superb player, which Del Rio has acknowledged already — after the draft, he labeled Young's "toolbox" of skills the "most complete" he's seen — and acknowledged again on Thursday. 


But Del Rio was also pragmatic about the ways in which Young could singlehandedly transform the defense. While the following quotes aren't as fun or flashy as his toolbox remark, they're still necessary to take into account.

"It’s not about just rush, it’s about rush and coverage and them going hand-in-hand," Del Rio explained. "You’re going to need coverage to hold up so that when our defensive line does win, they can get there. You can have the best rush in the world but if you don’t have some coverage and make the quarterback hold it, it’s not going to be positive for you."

Take last year's Redskins, for example. That group finished 10th in the league in sacks, yet they were still one of the league's worst collections overall. As productive as their rush was, they couldn't consistently make up for repeated busts in the intermediate and deep areas of the passing game.

So, as fans start looking ahead to 2020 and begin imagining what Young, plus the other talent up front, can do, they need to be sure to keep Del Rio's assessment in the back of their minds.

Should there be any less excitement about Young? No. Absolutely not. There's no such thing as too much hype for someone who appears as complete as he is.

However, Young's arrival on its own won't solve everything. It can solve a lot, sure, but the rest of the line, the linebackers and the secondary will have to contribute, too. It's simple, it's boring and it's true. And Del Rio's trying to remind anyone who'll listen.

NFL, EA Sports agree to six year extension of Madden video game franchise

NFL, EA Sports agree to six year extension of Madden video game franchise

The Madden franchise will continue to be a part of the gaming universe for at least the next six years.

NFL owners on Thursday approved an extension of their deal with Electronic Arts, continuing a relationship that has existed for 30 years. It was also recently approved by the NFL Players Association.

The current contract was set to expire after the 2021 season. The extension means that EA Sports will continue to be the league's exclusive publisher of football simulation games through 2026.

EA Sports Executive Vice President Cam Weber said both sides had been talking for months. Many wondered what the future of the relationship might be after 2K Sports signed an agreement with the NFL in March to produce non-simulation games.

The current edition of Madden has seen a 30% increase in unique players. According to Electronic Arts, more than 330 million hours of the game have been played since it was released last August. The company has also seen large increases in gameplay during the past couple of months as people have been confined to their homes because of the coronavirus pandemic, with many tournaments taking place among friends and on television.


Rachel Hoagland, the league's vice president and head of gaming and esports, said keeping the Madden franchise at the core of their video gaming strategy was important, especially with the emergence of new platforms and gaming systems. Sony and Microsoft have announced new generations of gaming consoles that are expected to debut by the end of the year.

"EA has done a nice job of ensuring the game matches the experience during a game week. The new technology will allow richer content and add more realism," she said.

Madden NFL 21 will come out in early August with the first looks at the game coming next week. 

Kansas City quarterback Patrick Mahomes was last year's cover athlete. Baltimore quarterback and reigning league MVP Lamar Jackson said in April that he would be on the cover this year, but EA Sports has not made an announcement.
