The Washington soccer team and the Giants are fighting for their first win of 2021 tonight on “Thursday Night Football.”
Following Ryan Fitzpatrick’s hip injury on Sunday, Washington’s Taylor Heinicke will make his first start since the 2020 NFL playoffs. Heinicke stepped in for Fitzpatrick against the Chargers, completing 11 of 15 passes for a total of 122 yards and a touchdown. .

Giants quarterback Daniel Jones has yet to prove himself worthy of staying with the Giants after Sunday’s loss to the Broncos. Saquon Barkley’s performance last week was another disappointment for the Giants: He rushed just 26 yards on 10 carries and was questionable Thursday with a knee injury.
Washington has lost to the Giants in their last five games, but enters Week 2 as a 3.5-point favorite in the NFC East showdown.
