Giants vs. Redskins: The Madden 17 Simulator Says…

EA Sports Madden 17 predicts this Sunday’s New York Giants versus Washington Redskins match-up at MetLife Stadium.

Starting with the Giants versus Saints in Week 2 and continuing through the 2016 NFL season, GMen HQ will use Madden 17 to simulate Big Blue’s weekly match-up ahead of the game. The Giants vs. Redskins is next on the list. We’ll simulate the game 10 times and give you the results, assessing the quarterback comparison and the Giants’ defensive performance.

Last week’s results weren’t too far off. The Giants won by six and Eli Manning outperformed Drew Brees. The real result on Sunday? The Giants win by three and Eli Manning outperforms Drew Brees.

Giants vs. Redskins

The Washington Redskins, NFC East rivals, visit East Rutherford Sunday and bring Odell Beckham vs. Josh Norman headlines with them. It’s the hottest take in the NFL this weekend. Ultimately, there’s more at stake for both teams. The Giants (2-0) look to remain perfect and the ‘Skins (0-2) try to get on the board with a win.

Much has been made of Norman’s signing with Washington, but the Giants made some moves of their own. The league’s worst defense a year ago, Big Blue is eighth in the NFL this season with the additions of Damon “Snacks” Harrison, Janoris Jenkins and Eli Apple, among others. How might they fare against the ‘Skins?
