NFL Expert Pick
Washington Redskins +7
New York Giants -7
Total 43.5

Thanks to the resurgence of their passing game, the New York Giants halted their two-game skid with a come-from-behind 24-20 victory last NFL expert pick Sunday against the Jacksonville Jaguars.

In recent weeks, the injury bug has hit hard in New York, especially amongst their receiving corps.

Giants’ top wide receiver and one of the NFL’s leading wideouts, Hakeem Nicks, suffered a leg injury in Week 11 NFL expert pick against the Philadelphia Eagles. Nicks’ earliest return date would be next week, barring any setbacks.

Throughout the nine full games Nicks has played, he totaled 735 receiving yards, and averaged a touchdown per game.

The Giants also lost their second-best receiver in Week 9 during their NFL expert pick matchup in Seattle. Steve Smith reached 517 receiving yards in just 8 games and had three touchdowns.

After throwing five interceptions over two weeks, Giants quarterback Eli Manning turned his slump around and brought his team a victory last NFL expert pick week.

Manning threw for 226 yards and two touchdowns in his matchup against the Jaguars but the key factor was that he recorded a clean sheet in his interception count.

NorthBet Numbers: The New York Giants have a 4-0 record this season when Manning throws no interceptions.

The Redskins have allowed an average of 269.4 passing yards per game to opposing quarterbacks, ranking 29th in the NFL. They have also surrendered 18 passing touchdowns this NFL expert pick season (20th in the league).

With the emergence of WR Derek Hagan and TE Kevin Boss, Eli Manning should continue to excel this NFL expert pick Sunday against the Redskins.

Brett’s Prediction: New York Giants: 24 Washington Redskins: 14

Nielson Notice: Washington has lost every game this season when their opponent scores more than 16 points.

NFL Expert Pick: New York Giants -7
