How to watch Thursday Night Football

The Giants vs Washington live stream features a defensive line that is eager to get their chance to face a quarterback who leads the NFL in fumbles over the last two seasons. Daniel Jones will be looking to protect the football against the likes of Chase Young and Montez Sweat in this NFL live stream.

TV: NFL Network

Stream: app (cable subscription required)

Finding out where to watch Thursday Night Football can be a little confusing because it changes slightly by week.

Again, Giants vs. Washington is not one of the games on FOX and Prime. It’s only on NFL Network and streaming on the NFL’s apps, which require a cable subscription.

Thirty times. THIRTY! That’s how many times Giants’ quarterback Daniel Jones has fumbled the football since coming into the league in 2019. That’s the most in the NFL over the last two-plus seasons and the second most all-time over a 28 game span. “It’s certainly something I’ve got to improve on,” Jones told the media Tuesday. “I’ll learn and keep moving forward.”

Jones’ latest folly came with just under three minutes to go in the third quarter, down 10 against the Broncos last week. The Giants started a drive at their own 25-yard-line and went 60 yards over 10 plays, before Jones coughed it up on a seven yard scramble. The Giants went on to lose, 27-13.

Was forced to leave the game in the second quarter with a hip injury that has since placed him on injured reserve. Taylor Heinicke will get the start under center against the Giants.

The back-up turned starter earned himself a two-year $8.75 million contract extension in the offseason after taking over for the injured Alex Smith last year in the playoffs. He threw for 306 yards with a passing and a rushing touchdown in a 31-23 loss to the Buccaneers. Last week Heinicke completed 11-of-his-15 passes for 122 yards and a touchdown caught by tight end Logan Thomas.  

Washington is a 3-point favorite against the Giants. The over/under is 41.

Update Giants-WFT Odds

Giants +3

Washington -3

Total: 40.5

Even without its starting quarterback, the Washington Football team is a 3-point favorite. Given that home-field advantage makes up a few points, the betting market thinks these teams are about even given the current status of each roster.

Giants News

What many see as a make-or-break year for quarterback Daniel Jones did not start the way he hoped.

The Broncos came to New York on Sunday afternoon and won 27-13. Jones threw for 267 yards, but New York couldn’t get its ground game going, even with Saquon Barkley healthy. This week, Barkley is questionable.

WFT News

The biggest news for either of these teams comes under center, with Fitzpatrick going on IR this week after he suffered a hip injury last week against the Chargers.

We don’t know how long Fitzpatrick will be sidelined — he’ll be on IR for a minimum of three weeks.

Heinicke played well in relief of Fitzpatrick on Sunday, going 11 of 15 for 122 yards and a touchdown. He’s really only played the bulk of a game three times in his career, but one included the NFC Wild Card Round last season.

Heinicke played at Old Dominion from 2011-2014 and has bounced around the NFL since. He’s been on the practice squad or active roster for the Vikings, Texans, Patriots and Panthers. He also made a brief pitstop in the short-lived XFL with the St. Louis BattleHawks in the spring of 2020.

New York Giants vs Washington Football Team live stream: loser props up the NFC East!

While there were few positives in the G-Men’s 27-13 defeat to the Broncos last Sunday, Daniel Jones has a surprisingly excellent record against the Burgundy and Gold. Jones has started four games against Washington and won them all, including a fiercely matched double last season.

Jones was sacked twice by Denver’s returning linebacker, Von Miller. Chase Young, Washington’s reigning Defensive Rookie of the Year, will be hell bent on making a statement after a limp showing on Sunday.

Chargers quarterback Justin Herbert racked up 337 passing yards against Washington in the first round – embarrassing for a team that prides itself on its defense – and with Ryan Fitzpatrick already out for the foreseeable future and the unproven Taylor Heinicke taking the reins in the veteran’s absence, Ron Rivera’s men can take nothing for granted.

Giants running back Saquon Barkley barely got a sniff on his big comeback, but it surely won’t be long before he starts looking like his old self again.

It’s an 8.20pm ET / 5.20pm PT / 1.20am BST kick-off at FedExField tomorrow night. Read on for more details on how to watch a New York Giants vs Washington Football Team live stream wherever you are in the world.
