It’s a battle of division rivals on Thursday Night Football as the NY Giants head to FedEx Field to take on the Washington Redskins.
Kickoff is at 8:25 P.M. (EST) and will be broadcast on both CBS and the NFL Network.
(Unlike in years past, this year the NFL Network will air 7 Thursday night games between September 11 and October 23).
Live streaming will be available from the NFL Network and through DIRECTV Sunday Ticket.
Streaming through the NFL Network is free, but can only be accessed through a participating cable provider and only through your home WI-FI Network: it can not be accessed when traveling.
The DIRECTV Sunday Ticket requires a subscription, which starts at $199 and is available to all Direct TV customers.
Those who do not have DIRECTV, but live in NY City, Philadelphia or San Francisco are eligible to purchase the service as well.
Verizon customers who have the Verizon Wireless More Everything Plan can also watch the game through live stream for free, as they dropped the $5 service fee for this season.
This weeks game should be a good one, as these 2 team have a long, storied history and are both trying to get to 2-2 on the season . Here’s a preview:
The Giants finally got their offense working last week against the Texans to avoid being 0-3 , but the question now is can Eli Manning keep it going?
Both their running and passing games looked impressive, but the Redskins defense, unlike Houstons, is one of the top 5 in the league so they may have a problem.
For the Redskins, they have played well despite losing RG III: QB Kirk Cousins has done remarkably well, but it remains to be seen if he can keep that high-level performance going.
In last weeks loss to the Eagles Cousins had over 427 yards passing and if he can duplicate that in any way the Giants won’t stand a chance.
The Giants seem shaky and lackluster, despite last weeks win- Redskins win 27-14.
