Thursday night football continues this evening with an NFC East matchup between the New York Football Giants and the Washington Redskins. While neither team is hovering around the top of any power rankings, this is an important step into claiming the NFC East title this season. So let's turn to Tecmo Super Bowl to get a glimpse into what we could expect to see tonight.
