What to watch on offense: 1) Taylor Heinicke. Of course. The Giants don't have a fierce pass rush, but likely will try to keep him in the pocket. Turnovers killed Washington vs. New York last season; he must avoid. 2) Patience with the run. New York defends the run well, but Washington must remain committed with Antonio Gibson. 3) Use play action. New York's linebackers commit hard to the run; take advantage with play action tosses over the middle.

What must happen on D: 1) Stop the run. In the second meeting last year, New York's Wayne Gallman and Alfred Morris combined for 23 carries and 135 yards. The line and linebackers must play more disciplined vs. a weak offensive front. 2) Beware Sterling Shepard. He's a tough inside receiver. 3) Contain Daniel Jones. He's an average quarterback, but he can extend plays and hurt teams with his legs. Chase Young and Montez Sweat will be targeted by protection, so the interior rushers will be key.

Washington inactives: CB Darryl Roberts, DE Shaka Toney, OT Saahdiq Charles and TE Sammis Reyes. Washington only has 52 players on its active roster so it only needs to make four inactive. None of these are a surprise.

Brad Johnson was one of 31 players who have started at quarterback for Washington since it last won a Super Bowl. He thought he was going to be here a while. Instead he lasted just two seasons, one of which was a Pro Bowl season. And he's left to lament what might have been.

Washington receiver Terry McLaurin's production shouldn't suffer at all in case quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick has to miss time because of a hip injury. McLaurin didn't have a big game vs. the Chargers (four catches, 62 yards) but no matter who plays quarterback he's capable of excellent games.

WFT QB Fitzpatrick set to undergo MRI on hip

Quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick will have an MRI on Monday to see whether he suffered a hip subluxation and to determine the severity of the injury after he was forced from Sunday's loss to the Chargers.

John Keim ESPN Staff Writer 

Washington inactives: TE Sammis Reyes, OT Saahdiq Charles, QB Kyle Allen, DE Shaka Toney, CB Darryl Roberts. There are no surprises here. Even without Reyes, Washington still has three tight ends active: Logan Thomas, Ricky Seals-Jones and John Bates.
