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.

Landon Collins and Derrius Guice debate Alabama vs. LSU in Twitter exchange

Landon Collins and Derrius Guice debate Alabama vs. LSU in Twitter exchange

Just as safety Landon Collins left Alabama after three years, running back Derrius Guice was about to begin his college career at LSU. 

The two never squared off against one another on the field. But as both players continue their staunch allegiance to their respective college teams, the two now-Redskins teammates squared off against one another with a series of tweets to debate the heated Alabama-versus-LSU rivalry.

Tuesday's Twitter debate centered around the what-could-have-been notion that Guice if Collins chose LSU over Alabama coming out of high school. During his prep years, Collins cemented himself as the No. 1 recruit in the state of Lousiana, according to 247 Sports, but opted to spurn the hometown power in favor of the Crimson Tide. 

The exchange began after Collins' said during a Twitter question-and-answer that he'd rather send his kids to LSU than be quarantined with New York Giants general manager Dave Gettleman, who let him hit free agency last season.

A fan quote-tweeted his answer and said that Collins should have donned the purple-and-gold during his college days. But Collins, who won a national championship in 2013, has hardware that he feels validates his decision.

That's when Guice got involved.

During those players' college careers, before Joe Burrow and Tua Tagovailoa lit up the scoreboard during the 46-41 shootout, the annual matchup between the two SEC rivals was typically a low-scoring affair.

Alabama won all three matchups against LSU during Collins' career. The Tigers still put together solid seasons during that timeframe, but Guice feels that Collins could have pushed those teams to another level. 

Collins, though, pointed to the other side of the ball, where points often came difficult to the LSU offense in the ground-and-pound scheme the Tigers have since abandoned. 

When it comes to Alabama and LSU, the two teammates will likely never see eye-to-eye. But now that burgundy and gold unites them, they do share the same thoughts on winning a championship together with the Redskins.

Kyle Allen expects his system knowledge to be a major help with Redskins

Kyle Allen expects his system knowledge to be a major help with Redskins

Quarterback Kyle Allen was traded to the Washington Redskins one week ago, but has yet to make an appearance at Redskins Park. He's been training in California since February, and due to the coronavirus pandemic, it doesn't seem like he'll be headed to the nation's capital anytime soon, either.

For many players that are entering their first season with an organization, they likely feel like they have some catching up to do. In most cases, there's a new playbook to learn and new teammates to meet. But for Allen, he likely knows the Redskins offense better than any other player on the roster.

The Redskins cleaned house this offseason, hiring well-respected head coach Ron Rivera as the organization attempts to change its culture. Rivera, who coached Allen the past two seasons in Carolina, hired Scott Turner as the team's offensive coordinator. Scott, the son of former Redskins head coach Norv Turner, also coached in Carolina the past two seasons, and worked directly with Allen as the Panthers QB coach before taking over as offensive coordinator last December.

Although he's with a new team and a new city, Allen's familiarity with Turner and his offensive system is something the quarterback believes will benefit the Redskins significantly.

"I think the continuity of the system is huge for me," Allen told reporters in a conference call on Tuesday. "I think it's going to be good for the team, too. If we don't have a lot of OTAs, or OTAs at all, it at least gives someone on the team experience in the system and to be able to teach it to other guys in the offense and relay what the coaches are saying."

Since Rivera took over as the Redskins head coach in January, he's preached bringing in competition for rising second-year passer Dwayne Haskins. After trading for Allen, the head coach stated in a radio interview last week that he intends to enter training camp with Haskins as the starter. But Haskins certainly have the gig given to him, as Allen will get the opportunity to compete for the job.

"I think the expectation is to come in and compete for the job," Allen said. "I think that's an awesome opportunity."

Allen explained that he has yet to meet Haskins, but is excited to get to know him and compete with the quarterback. The new Redskins signal-caller explained that just because they are fighting for the same job, that doesn't mean they can't have a great relationship with one another.

"We've been doing it our whole lives," Allen said on competition. "We've been doing it since we were in high school, trying to compete against different guys. At the same time, you get to meet a lot of really cool people in the process. In Carolina, Cam [Newton] and Will [Grier], we're all competing for different jobs, but we all came out with great relationships. You spend a lot of time with these people, you might as well have a great relationship."

As a rookie, Haskins started just seven games. The passer displayed flashes of potential, but had plenty of growing pains. Just as Haskins finally seemed to be hitting his stride late last season, an ankle injury prematurely ended his rookie campaign.

The Ohio State product is entering his third system in as many years and would have benefitted significantly from the extra reps that come during OTAs and mini-camp. It's no secret that entering his second season, he needs as many reps as possible.

With those offseason programs in jeopardy, Allen's experience in Turner's system could give him an edge on Haskins come training camp. Allen explained that Turner's offensive system is not easy to pick up on, but once it's learned, there's plenty of potential within it.

"I think [the system] takes a decent amount of time to really learn and grasp on to," Allen said. "I think it's evolved a lot over the years. It took me like a solid month, month and a half before I really felt comfortable out at practice and going through the plays. It's tough to grasp at first, but once you grasp it, it's really fluid. You can really maneuver it in different ways to help the team out. I think it's a really good system and Scott has a good idea for what he wants to do with it."

Allen isn't anywhere close to a finished product, either. He's 24, entering his third season in the NFL, and just 14 months older than Haskins. While he may not be the Redskins first option at quarterback right now, he'll likely get the chance to put his own stamp on the organization, one way or another.
