With only eight carries (2 TD’s), Jacobs went over the century mark
This is the type of game we all love. Dominant on both sides of the ball. Great run game, great defense, and it paid off, as the Giants beat the Redskins 31-7 .
The Giants started off the scoring early on a eight yard Brandon Jacobs touchdown. They added another touchdown later in the first on a 4 yard Ahmad Bradshaw. In the second quarter, Bradshaw added another touchdown, this time on a 10 yard run.
Jacobs added a 2nd touchdown in the 3rd quarter, this time on a 28 yard run, to make the score 28-0. The Redskins got on the board in the 3rd, as Donovan McNabb connected with Anthony Armstrong on a 33 yard strike, to make it 28-7.
In the 4th quarter, the Giants added a 28 yard field goal, to make it 31-7.
The Giants really excelled in the run game. Jacobs, Bradshaw were just running all over this Redskins defense. At some points, it just wasn’t even fair. The passing game wasn’t spectacular–didn’t have to be–but did enough to move the chains.
The defense was very good. Good pass rush. Great game by Jason Pierre-Paul, who continues to improve and impress. They didn’t have to be spectacular, but made plays when they had do, especially on 3rd down. Had some big turnovers to stop any momentum.
Special teams was also great. Former Redskin Devin Thomas had a big game, blocking a punt, and with some big tackles. Matt Dodge had a few great punts, and coverage as a whole was very good.
It was an easy game to watch, but the Giants did some good things and came out with a win. The Giants are the better team, and it showed today. The Giants move to 8-4, and are set up great for the stretch run.
