LANHAM, Md. (CBSDC) — One week after ending an eight-game home losing streak, the Washington Redskins can end another drought. A win over the New York Giants would give Washington back-to-back wins for the first time since Sept. 11 and Sept. 18, 2011 — 13 months ago.

The team has achieved that feat just twice under Mike Shanahan.

Going by the numbers, Washington will need to hope for an “any given Sunday” moment in the Meadowlands.

However, the Robert Griffin III factor cannot be discounted. The rookie quarterback will get his first taste of division action on Sunday.

Giants head coach Tom Coughlin is not taking the young prodigy lightly.

“He runs in the endzone, for crying out loud,” Coughlin said. “He’s got a better feel of what’s going on. He’s more acclimated to the game, to the circumstances, the situations… He’s not forcing anything. I’ve seen improvement like you would imagine for an athlete of that caliber over the course of the six games.”

Here are five quick facts on the Redskins-Giants rivalry:
