It's a relatively quiet Monday night in the sports world, so most eyes will be on the Monday Night Football matchup between a pair of NFC East squads.â†µ
NFL: New York Giants vs. Washington Redskins, 8:30, ESPN: The Giants head down to DC to take on Robert Griffin III and the Redskins. New York snapped out of a slump with a convincing win over the Green Bay Packers last week, while the Skins have won two straight behind four touchdowns in back-to-back weeks by Griffin, who is playing the best ball of his already impressive rookie season. The playoffs are still very much an option for both teams, with New York leading the division and Washington hoping to get to .500 -- which would be just a game behind the Giants -- with a win.
