Giants Vs. Redskins: Previewing The First Game Of The 2011 Season

Washington's first game of the season is against the hated New York Giants. What can we expect from the Redskins?

The Redskins open up the 2011 season on Sunday against the hated division rival New York Giants. The game will be played at 4:15 pm.

This will be the first game of the "official" Rex Grossman era in Washington. he started same games last year, but that was really as a replacement in the Donovan McNabb era. Now this is his time, and we'll see if he can make the most of it. That is, until Mike Shanahan pulls him in favor of John Beck.

As for the Giants, it will be interesting to see if they can even field a complete team on the defensive side of the ball. They've suffered so many injuries there over the offseason that they won't have many of their regular starters. But the Giants are still a good team and should provide a tough test for the Redskins.

We'll be previewing the game in this stream. For more on this game, you can head over to the Giants team blog at Big Blue View, or the Redskins team blog at Hogs Haven. Or SB Nation New York for more on the Giants.
