NFC East rivals are like dogs and cats. They simply do not like each other.
And that's why tonight's football game is going to be great! The Giants are coming off their best game of the season, as QB Eli Manning, RB Rashad Jennings, and WR Victor Cruz all had great games.
Can they do it twice in a row?
The Redskins had their own offensive explosion last week as QB Kirk Cousins threw for 437 yards and three TDs while both WRs Pierre Garcon and DeSean Jackson scored TDs and had over 100 yards receiving. If you want any of these stars on your NFL RUSH Fantasy Football team, you should set your line up now.
The action kicks off at 8:30 PM ET on the NFL Network and CBS.
Washington Redskins wide receiver Pierre Garcon was voted the 80th-best player in the NFL by his peers on "Top 100 Players of 2013."
The “Eggtivity Zone” was very popular as it served as an opportunity for kids to complete an obstacle course alongside their favorite players!
With the addition of Seahawks RB Marshawn Lynch to go along with Broncos QB Peyton Manning, the ultimate NFL RUSH Fantasy Football Team is off to a fantastic start.
But who are we going to send deep? Who is going to make the clutch catch on 3rd and 10?
In today's pass-happy NFL the WR position has never been more important. As you'll see it's going to be tough to select just one, but no one every said this would be easy!

Pro Bowl WR DeSean Jackson is now a Washington Redskin!
This move must make QB Robert Griffin III smile. The Redskins offensive is now super-charged with the addition of the speedy Jackson to go along with WRs Pierre Garconand Andre Roberts, and burgeoning star TE Jordan Reed.
Good luck stopping those guys, NFL defenses. Oh and if you do, you'll be rewarded with a heaping serving of power RB Alfred Morris. The Redskins are stacked!
And it gets even juicier. By staying in the NFC East, Jackson will face the Philadelphia Eagles, the team that cut him, twice a year. Payback, anyone? You will not want to miss those Redskin - Eagles games this year!
Three NFL players, who excel on the field and in their community, are continuing a NFL-USO tradition initiated nearly 50 years ago. These NFL ambassadors are taking part in a week-long tour throughout the Middle East to visit U.S. troops.
Miami Dolphins punter Brandon Fields, Washington Redskins WR Pierre Garcon and New Orleans Saints TE Jimmy Graham are participating in the tour this year. This trip marks the first NFL-USO tour abroad for all of them. Way to go!
The NFL and USO have worked together on overseas morale-building visits for 48 years. In 1966, the NFL teamed with the USO and became the first sports organization to send players to Vietnam and other parts of Asia.
As you might have seen last year the Redskins DID NOT play well at all. This year what the Redskins need is a playoff berth to just send hope throughout the organization and hopefully continue it.
Since, RGII got crushed last year in the pocket, we will need some hard hitting O-Line. We have a good receiver: Pierre Garcon, but we need more of these types. We used to have London Fletcher (my favorite player), but since he retired we will need a couple of good linebackers. We have horrible safetyso we should invest in a couple more to make our lowly ranked defense higher (hopefully).
These are what we will need to hopefully get a playoff berth. I will like to see Johnny Manziel in the combine, we'll see if is just another great college football player, but a not so good NFL player.
RG III vs. Kap! It should be a wild one as the Washington Redskins host the San Francisco 49ers in tonight's Monday Night Football match-up.
The game features a match-up of Robert Griffin III and Colin Kaepernick, two young QBs who burst on the scene last year and led their clubs to division titles. Those aren't the only stars that will be shining tonight however. Frank Gore vs. Alfred Morris should be a great RB battles while on the receiving end it will be Pierre Garcon vs. Anquan Boldin.
Though there were a lot of teams on their bye week, I managed to find a decent NFL game, Chargers at Redskins, this weekend that turned out to be a thrilling game. The game included brilliant offensive performances by quarterbacks Philip Rivers and Robert Griffin III, great defensive performances by both teams, and a few special teams surprises from the Chargers. The Redskins won in overtime on a Darrell Young touchdown, 30-24. Though I was rooting for San Diego, this turned out to be a interesting game that is worth analyzing. Here are 3 notes I had about the game.
1. Washington has a lot of talent offensively.
Robert Griffin III and the Skins haven't been doing well recently, but they performed very well during this game. Fullback Darrell Young scored 3 touchdowns on 3 carries, Pierre Garcon had over 150 yards of receiving, and tight end Jordan Reed is now a potential perennial Pro Bowler. Young running back Alfred Morris led a strong running game for the Redskins and Griffin also had some key runs in the game. Garcon, who I believe was the MVP of the game, had his best game of the year by far, easily shown in the remarkable highlight catches on long throws that set Washington into scoring position. The rookie tight end Jordan Reed was unstoppable, catching throws in traffic, gaining chunks of yards after the catch, and running in the option.
2. Super Rookies!
Reed and Chargers wide receiver Keenan Allen were outstanding during the game and both had big contributions for their teams.Despite a drop on third down, Allen had a fantastic performance. He had over 100 yards catching for the 3rd time in 4 weeks, and has shown great chemistry with Philip Rivers.
3. The Chargers Should Still Be Happy
While the Chargers lost, they should still be very happy as they hope to go to New York in February. That is because all teams that have won the Super Bowl after the year 2010 have played the Eagles in the Eagles' first home game, and have lost to the Redskins. The Chargers are obviously the only team that played the first game in Philly, and lost to the Redskins. Chargers fans should be happy; this only means that San Diego is closer to a Super Bowl victory!
Even though the Chargers lost, this was one of the best Week 9 games and one of the best overtime games of the season.
NFLRUSH Kid Reporter
There are many 0-3 teams out there in the NFL, but right now I will be talking about the most unexpected team that has started the season 0-3. The five 0-3 teams are: Washington Redskins, New York Giants, Tampa Bay Buccaneers, Pittsburgh Steelers, and the Jacksonville Jaguars. The two teams that I was stuck between were the Redskins and the Giants. But because the Giants have played against the better teams, I went with the Redskins. That is one of the reasons I think they are the most surprising 0-3 team. Another reason is that RGIII did really well last year and many thought he would be even better this year. And he will need to be if this team is going to get to the top.
The Redskins need RGIII to get back into his groove in the passing and running game and that will help them a little. They also need their receivers to step up. The only guy that is really playing well is Pierre Garcon, so one of the other guys needs to help him out and give RGIII more options. RGIII ends up running the ball more than he should because the receiving weapons aren't coming through. A big factor in the Redskins bad start is their defense, because the only defensive weapon they have is basically Deangelo Hall. This defense might be the worst in the league.
The Washington Redskins need to get their head in the game, and play better like they used to.
The Redskins opened camp looking to reload with a healthy RGIII. Destination: Super Bowl!
Speaking of QB Robert Griffin III, he looks fantastic and should be a full go by opening day.
Attention fantasy players! WR Pierre Garcon has had a monster camp. He’s going to have a big year!
WR Aldrick Robinson has been sleeper of the camp so far.
LB Brian Orakpo is another Redskin who looks all the way back to his All-Pro self.
New LB signing Nick Barnett has already established himself as a leader on defense.
Robert Griffin is an NFL star. He had a memorable first season winning Rookie of the Year and leading the Redskins to a strong 10-6 record. He tore his ACL in the wild card round of the playoffs. He also got married and received wedding gifts from all his fans. The ACL recovery has been good so far, but there is no timetable for his return. RGIII and Alfred Morris are two playmakers on the Redskins offense that make electrifying plays.
I am excited to see Robert Griffin because he is thrilling to watch, and comes from Baylor, my favorite university. He isn't just a running quarterback either; he also has a very strong arm. Pierre Garcon is coming back from an injury plagued year as well and provides another option for RGIII. Look for RGIII to tear up the NFC East with more excitement!
If you want to win, these are the guys you should have in your lineup.
QB: Aaron Rodgers – Green Bay Packers
The Packers will go as far in the playoffs as Rodgers can carry them. He will not let them lose twice to their dreaded rivals, the Vikings.
RB: Arian Foster – Houston Texans
Look for Foster and the rest of the Texans to be rude hosts to the visiting Bengals.
WR: Reggie Wayne – Indianapolis Colts
In big games, we’ve found it’s best to go with proven primetime performers like Wayne.
You may want to avoid these three players this week as they have tough matchups.
QB: Christian Ponder – Minnesota Vikings
Look for the Packers to load up the box and force Ponder to make plays. This could be a recipe for disaster for the young QB.
