New York Giants vs. Washington Redskins Recap
September 24, 2015
Kirk Cousin’s first start in an NFC East Division game against their rival, the New York Giants, did not go quite like head coach Jay Gruden had hoped. The Washington Redskins offense looked totally inept at moving the pigskin, including untimely 3 turnovers. Cousins tossed an ill-timed interception ending a drive, and the Redskins also lost a pair of fumbles, one as rookie running back Matt Jones spun towards the goal line in what would have been a game-tightening touchdown for the Skins.
Eli Manning on the other hand, looked like the Manning of old by completing a methodical 23 out 32 passing attempts, including a pair of touchdowns. Rueben Randle led all Giant receivers topping the 100 yard mark, and had one of the pair of TD catches along with the #1 target for Manning, Odell Beckham Jr.
The Giants took control of the game early, scoring a first quarter touchdown, then a field goal plus an untimely safety by the Washington offense, further evidence of an offense out of sync.
Beckham Jr.’s 4th quarter TD grab extended the G-Men’s lead to 25 to 6, and although the Washington offense began to move a little bit, they were never a serious threat to New York on this evening. The Giant victory in front of the home ground gave them their first win of the 2015 season and evened both NFC East rivals records at 1-2.

Atlanta's Matt Ryan threw for 363 yards and a touchdown on 30-for-46 passing, and Odell Beckham Jr. had a huge game with seven receptions for 146 yards and a touchdown. Ryan's 37-yard pass to Beckham Jr. was the key play of the Falcons' game-winning drive.

Dallas Cowboys vs. New York Giants Recap
September 13, 2015
Dallas's Tony Romo led the Cowboys on a game-winning drive in the final two minutes, giving the Cowboys a win over the division rival Giants. The game-winning play looked like a broken play when the shotgun snap landed on the turf, but Romo picked up the ball and completed an 11-yard touchdown pass to Jason Witten. Romo threw two interceptions but moved the ball well throughout the day, completing 36 of 45 passes for 356 yards and three touchdowns. Dallas had a 436-289 advantage in total yards, helping the Cowboys to overcome a three-turnover deficit. After the game, Giants quarterback Eli Manning and coach Tom Coughlin acknowledged that their poor time management led to the loss.
