The storyline for the 2013 regular season for the New York Giants and the Washington Redskins comes down to their performance against NFC East division opponents, which is a putrid 1-6. Neither the Redskins nor the Giants are officially eliminated from playoff contention going into this contest, but it sure feels like they're just plodding their way to the end of the campaign; to wit, the teams have a combined seven wins this season.
Throughout his NFL career, Eli Manning has been very mediocre when it comes to primetime games. He is just 23-22 straight up and 26-18-1 against the spread. Against NFC East opponents in primetime he isn't much better, with a record of 11-10 SU and 11-9-1 ATS. Manning has lost his last four primetime games against divisional opponents dating back to the end of the 2011 regular season, a streak that includes all three of the other clubs.
