Giants vs. Redskins: Score, live updates from Thanksgiving night game

LIVE: Giants vs. Redskins score, updates

Giants vs. Redskins on Thanksgiving night is not what the NFL hoped it would be when the league scheduled the game months ago. New York’s surprisingly terrible season has the team out of postseason contention as Week 12 begins. At least Washington is alive in the NFC playoff picture as a possible wild card.

Of course, the Giants’ struggles this season don’t mean the Redskins, favored by more than a touchdown, would get an easy Thanksgiving win Thursday night. (Ask the Chiefs why.)

The Giants are making their 15th appearance on Thanksgiving and first since 2009. The team’s history of playing on the holiday dates back to 1926, when the Giants defeated the Brooklyn Lions 17-0 at Ebbets Field. The Redskins are hosting a game on Thanksgiving for the first time in franchise history. The contest also marks the 10th time Washington will play on the holiday, including the second year in a row.
