Giants Put Away the Redskins, 45-14

Giants Put Away the Redskins, 45-14

Elsa/Getty Images(LANDOVER, Md.) -- The New York Giants offense was better than expected as the team took apart the Washington Redskins on Thursday night, 45-14.

Quarterback Eli Manning had his best game of the early season. Manning went 28 for 39 with 300 passing yards, throwing four touchdowns, and running for another.

Despite the big game for Manning, the star for the Giants was arguably un-drafted free agent tight end Larry Donnell. On Thursday night, he hauled in seven catches for 54 yards, including three touchdowns.

"That was the whole thing, to be able to leave here tonight and be 2-2 and 1-0 in the division. That was huge," Giants head coach Tom Coughlin said. "It's exciting to be in the hunt, and by being able to come out of here with a win, hopefully we have a chance to be."

As well as Manning played, Redskins quarterback Kirk Cousins struggled mightily. In his second start of the season, Cousins completed just 19 of 33 passes for 257 yards with one touchdown and four interceptions.

Eagles Defeat Redskins in 37-34 Shootout

Eagles Defeat Redskins in 37-34 Shootout

Rich Shultz/Getty Images(PHILADELPHIA, PA.) -- The Philadelphia Eagles moved to 3-0 with a 37-34 win over the Washington Redskins on Sunday.

Eagles quarterback Nick Foles tossed three touchdowns, including two to rookie wide receiver Jordan Matthews.

The game was full of hard hits, injuries and even a brawl as the teams battled back and forth. 

Washington receiver DeSean Jackson, a former Eagle, drew significant attention as he was a frequent target of Philadelphia defenders. Eagles running back LeSean McCoy briefly left the game after a stunning hit by Washington defensive back David Amerson.

Redskins defensive back DeAngelo Hall said after the game he believes he suffered a torn Achilles.

After an interception by Washington cornerback Bahaud Breeland (that was later overturned), Foles took a strong hit from Chris Baker.  Foles laid on the ground for several minutes as his teammates, including tackle Jason Peters, came to his defense and a brawl ensued on the Redskins sideline.  Several punches were thrown; both Baker and Peters were ejected.

Robert Griffin III Exits with Dislocated Ankle

Robert Griffin III Exits with Dislocated Ankle

Ronald Martinez/Getty Images(LANDOVER, Md.) -- The Washington Redskins (1-1) dominated Jacksonville, 41-10 on Sunday, but did it without starting quarterback Robert Griffin III. The third-year signal caller was carted off the field after suffering a dislocated ankle in the first quarter.

Backup quarterback Kirk Cousins played admirably in relief, throwing for 250 yards and two touchdowns in the win over the Jaguars (0-2).

Griffin is scheduled to undergo an MRI on Monday, but could miss the remainder of the season.

"I'm just trying to stay in a good place," said Griffin. "Our spirits are high. We're always thinking positive. We'll see what happens tomorrow and whatever information comes out, we'll know what the timetable is from there."

This marks the second time in his career that Griffin faces a potential season-ending injury. In 2012, Griffin suffered a torn ACL in his right knee, forcing him to miss the final four games of the regular season.
