5 players to watch in Giants vs. Redskins

Coming off their victory over the Dolphins, the Giants look to make it two in a row this Sunday against the Washington Redskins. The Giants took the first leg of the season series with a 24-3 win in Week 4.

Here are five players to watch:

CB DeANDRE BAKER: The first round pick is one of many young players who have improved since facing the Cowboys for the first time in the season opener.

CB DeANDRE BAKER: The first-round draft choice is coming on strong down the stretch of his rookie season. He has broken up five passes in the last two games and made six tackles in last week's victory.

QB DANIEL JONES: Sunday will be just the ninth game since the 1970 merger in which rookie quarterbacks (Jones and Arizona’s Kyler Murray) selected among the first 10 choices in the draft will start against each other.

QB DANIEL JONES: After a two-game absence due to a high ankle sprain, the rookie sixth overall pick returns as the starting quarterback. He leads all rookies with 18 touchdown passes this season.


DL DALVIN TOMLINSON: Since Week 10, Tomlinson has 23 tackles, two sacks, and one forced fumble. He will go up against future Hall of Fame running back Adrian Peterson this week.


CB SAM BEAL: In his first two career starts, Beal has 18 tackles and forced a safety in Week 16 against Miami.

WR DARIUS SLAYTON: The rookie fifth-round pick caught his first career touchdown last week and led the team in receiving yards.

WR DARIUS SLAYTON: The fifth-round draft choice leads all NFL rookies with eight touchdown catches.
