NFL Week 15 picks: Recent York Giants-Washington Commanders predictions | Will Daniel Jones win biggest game of his profession?


Two weeks ago the Giants had a bunch of possibilities to seal a vital victory at home against the Washington Commanders.

As an alternative, they settled for a 20-20 tie because they may not stop the Commanders from driving 90 yards with under 4 minutes remaining in regulation.

Now, the teams get a probability to interrupt one other tie once they play in front of a national television audience Sunday night at FedEx Field. Each the Giants and Commanders are 7-5-1 and the winner of this game could have an inside track to the postseason.

The Giants, after all, haven’t been to the playoffs since 2016, so that is the largest NFL game for the overwhelming majority of their players, including quarterback Daniel Jones and running back Saquon Barkley.

The Commanders are a 4 1/2-point favorite.

Listed below are the picks from our team at NJ Advance Media:

Darryl Slater, NFL reporter: Massive game for the Giants. While it’s not “win and in” or “lose and out,” this showdown within the Commanders’ dump of a stadium has major playoff implications since these teams tied of their first meeting two weeks ago. In between, the Commanders were off, while the Giants got pounded by the Eagles. If the Giants consider themselves a playoff team, this can be a game they should win.

PICK: Commanders 24, Giants 21.

Bob Brookover, Giants beat reporter: Nine wins is probably going going to be the magic number to make the NFC playoffs and given the Lions’ remaining schedule (Jets, Panthers, Bears, Packers) it’s easy to see how they’ll get there. It could occur, however it’s not as easy to see how the Giants or Commanders get there without winning this game.

PICK: Commanders 23, Giants 21.


Andy Vasquez, Jets beat reporter: The Giants are spiraling with just one win of their last six games. And while the standings say they’ll still make the playoffs irrespective of what happens Sunday, this appears like the sport they need to win. On paper, the Commanders have an enormous edge. They’re rested after the bye, and have had three straight weeks to have a look at Giants film because their off week fell between the 2 matchups between the teams. However the Giants spent the primary two months of the season defying expectations, and Sunday they do it again.

PICK: Giants 21, Commanders 18.

Chris Franklin, Eagles beat reporter: No team within the NFL extra time era, which began in 1974, has ever had two ties in the identical season, so not less than these two squads are unlikely to make us witness a replay of two weeks ago. The Giants are sliding on the unsuitable point of the season, while the Commanders are recuperating. Commanders quarterback Taylor Heinicke takes advantage of a banged-up Giants secondary, while the Commanders’ defensive position sacks Giants quarterback Daniel Jones not less than 4 times in a Washington victory.

PICK: Commanders 31, Giants 17.
