    LANDOVER Youth Odell Beckham Jerseys , Md. (AP) — The first time Washington faced the New York Giants this season, Alex Smith was the QB for the Redskins, and their victory pushed them to 5-2, alone atop the NFC East.The Giants, meanwhile, dropped to 1-7, headed nowhere fast in coach Pat Shurmur’s first year and what just about everyone was figuring would be Eli Manning’s last.So much has happened in the meantime.As the rivals prepare to meet again Sunday, it’ll be Mark Sanchez taking the reins as the Redskins’ third starting quarterback in less than a month. They’ve lost three consecutive games to fall to 6-6. There was also the fallout from the decision to claim Reuben Foster off waivers after the San Francisco 49ers released the linebacker following an arrest for domestic violence.The biggest challenge now for the Redskins is trying to persuade themselves not to pack it in.“We still have a lot to play for. We’re not out of anything right now. It’s not like we’re 0-12 and we’re just playing for whatever. We’re actually playing to try to get into the playoffs, possibly win the division. Heck, we still have a lot out in front of us,” Washington coach Jay Gruden said.“It might not be pretty. We might not throw for 500 yards and lead the league in offense or what have you. We might throw for 100 and rush for 100 and win the game 7-3. Who knows?” Gruden said. “I know that we have enough talent in here, where we can still do some damage and compete with anybody on our schedule. So that’s my job to get our team up and ready — and then it’s their job to go out and perform at the very highest level that they can possibly perform.”And the Giants?Well, they’re still in last place, but they’ve shown lately that they didn’t give up under Shurmur, winning three of their past four games to get to 4-8 Odell Beckham Jerseys Stitched , with rookie running back Saquon Barkley and star receiver Odell Beckham Jr. leading the way. If they beat Washington — and New York is favored because of the host’s quarterback situation — the Giants would suddenly have a realistic shot at moving out of the division cellar.The biggest impediment to Washington’s chances at staying close to the teams ahead of it, Dallas and Philadelphia, is an offense that saw Smith go down with a broken leg in a 23-21 loss against Houston on Nov. 18, then McCoy get a broken leg last week.Now Gruden had a short week to prepare Sanchez for his first starting assignment since the 2015 season.“We know what’s at stake,” said Sanchez, whose last win as a starter came in 2014. “We understand that this division is really up for grabs, so these next few games, especially the divisional games, carry a lot of weight.”Here are other things to know about the game Sunday:THE SANCHIZEAgainst the Eagles, the 32-year-old Sanchez compiled a passer rating of 53.7, going 13 for 21 for only 100 yards with one interception and one fumble that he managed to recover. His career passer rating is 73.7, and he has more interceptions (87) than TD passes (86) since entering the league as a first-round draft pick of the New York Jets.“It’s a huge leap playing with guys you don’t even know,” Gruden said about Sanchez, who was signed to be McCoy’s backup less than three weeks ago. “I don’t even know if he knows all (of his teammates’) names.”SO MANY FLAGSThe Giants have been penalized 50 times for 438 yards in their last five games, averaging 10 flags for 87.6 yards. In their last game Color Rush Ryan Connelly Jersey , the numbers were 12 for 107.SO MANY INJURIESThe Redskins now have 17 players on injured reserve after adding three more names this week. The banged-up offensive line was already without both starting guards and now lost another, Jonathan Cooper, to a torn biceps. Another guard, Tony Bergstrom, is also hurt, as is starting center Chase Roullier.REPLACING LANDONReplacing injured safety Landon Collins is going to be tough for New York. He was the team’s leading tackler in each of his first three seasons and was leading the team this year with 96. Veteran Michael Thomas and rookie Sean Chandler probably will split time at the strong safety spot. The problem for the Giants is Collins is excellent in run support and covering tight ends.INDEFENSIBLEDuring Washington’s solid start to the season, the defense was seen as a strength. Not so much these days: Washington is allowing 27.3 points per game over the past three. And its opponents have gained 422.4 yards per game over the past five. ATLANTA (AP) — There is renewed optimism for Atlanta’s defense and new hope for the Falcons’ season that seemed lost following a 1-4 start.The overall defensive statistics are still ugly, but two straight wins and improved play from fill-in starters combined to leave Falcons coach Dan Quinn upbeat during the team’s bye week.“Let’s call it like it is, we hadn’t performed to the level that we wanted to defensively,” Quinn said Tuesday. “But this past week I really felt a shift take place. The guys that now have been playing together for a few weeks, I saw them rise to the occasion in that regard.”Following the off week, the Falcons play at Washington on Nov. 4, followed by another road game at Cleveland.For a team with six players on injured reserve, including three defensive starters, improved health is especially important for the Falcons (3-4). Defensive tackle Grady Jarrett had two sacks in Monday night’s 23-20 win over the New York Giants after missing two weeks with an ankle injury.“Getting Grady back out there is huge Youth Ryan Connelly Jersey ,” said wide receiver Julio Jones. “He’s a leader. What he brings to the defensive line and his energy is huge.”Jarrett says the Falcons, only two years removed from their 2016 Super Bowl season, can still make a third straight playoff appearance.“We understand that everything we want is still ahead of us,” Jarrett said. “We are going to approach it that way. We are not going to let one win stay on our mind too long, and we are not going to let a loss stay on our mind. … We have a long way to go and we are a group of tough guys that won’t give up.”Rookie linebacker Foye Oluokun, gaining confidence and experience in his fill-in starter’s role after Deion Jones was placed on IR, had six stops against the Giants. Second-year defensive end Takk McKinley added a sack, giving him a team-leading 5 ½ for the year.Atlanta gave up only two field goals through three quarters before allowing two fourth-quarter touchdowns to the Giants.“It’s good. You always want to go into the bye week with a win,” said cornerback Desmond Trufant. “The last two weeks we got a win, so we just have to keep grinding the momentum and get healthy.”It has been a rough first half of the season for Atlanta, especially on defense.The Falcons are giving up 419.4 yards and 30.3 points per game, the third-highest averages in the league. Only Tampa Bay (32.7) and San Francisco (31.1) have allowed more points per game through seven weeks.Before the spree of injuries, the defense was on the rise after allowing only 19.7 points per game last season.The heart of the unit was ripped apart by injuries this season. Jones and safeties Keanu Neal and Ricardo Allen were placed on injured reserve in the first month of the season.As new starters have become more comfortable in their roles, other players have healed. Jarrett and backup end Derrick Shelby, who had been out since Week 2 with a groin injury Womens Ryan Connelly Jersey , returned against the Giants.“Our ability to swarm to the ball felt different in this game,” said Quinn of the win over the Giants. “I thought it was one of the better performances by the defensive line overall, run game and pass rush. If we can make sure we stay true to our style, I think that’s a big thing.”The Falcons placed right guard Brandon Fusco on injured reserve on Wednesday. Offensive guard Andy Levitre and running back Devonta Freeman also are on IR.Jones (foot) and Freeman (groin) may return in the second half of the season, though Freeman may be a long shot.Quinn said Jones, sidelined since the opening week, “is meeting all the markers” and “making terrific progress.” Even so, Quinn also said “We’ve still got a ways to go” before having the linebacker back on the field.The Falcons are in last place in the NFC South, but Trufant says there is still time to make a playoff run.“We always felt we were still in it regardless of how we started,” Trufant said. “We just had to get some momentum and find out what works for us and keep moving. There’s a lot of ball left and we can still do a lot of damage out there.”
