1. The Giants seal the victory thanks to a great 4th-down stop

The game really shouldn't have come down to a 4th and 5 in the Giants' red zone, as they were handed several opportunities to close out the Commanders prior to this. However, when it came time to make a game-winning play, the Giants' defense showed up and delivered New York their second victory of the season. It's hard to pinpoint who had the most impact here, as really everyone played their role very well:

Whether it be the ridiculous amount of pressure the defensive front put on Howell, or the great play by Jason Pinnock to help seal the deal on Jahan Dotson's drop, we really have to give credit to everyone. For yet another week, the Giants' defense picked up where the offense left off, except this time, New York finally came out with a win.

The Giants' defense has been nothing short of incredible these last couple of weeks and it's something we love to see. If the offense won't play well, at least the other half of the field will show up and win a game or two.
