Washington (1-2) at N.Y. Giants (3-0)

Time: 8:35 p.m., ESPN.

Line: Giants by 1.

Vs. spread: Redskins 0-3; Giants 2-1.

Series: Giants lead 75-55-4.

Last meeting: Redskins won, 50-21, on Sept. 19, 1999, at New York.

Outlook: Brad Johnson has thrown more passes than any quarterback in the league. That, in part, is Washington's problem, along with the fact that Johnson hasn't done much with those throws (two TD passes, five interceptions). Who would have thought that the Giants' Tiki Barber would have outrushed Stephen Davis at this point, 326 yards to 283 yards? And Barber has done it carrying the ball 24 times fewer than Davis. The Giants' defense is not going to let Davis run crazy. In fact, it wants to atone for that 50-point debacle against the Redskins last season.

Notable: Giants have not started a season 4-0 since 1990, when they won Super Bowl XXV.

Injuries:

REDSKINS: Out-C Cory Raymer (knee). Questionable-RB Larry Centers (elbow); TE James Jenkins (neck). Probable-G Keith Sims (Achilles).

GIANTS: Out-CB Ralph Brown (kidney). Questionable-TE Pete Mitchell (stomach); CB Andre Weathers (knee).
