Giants linebacker Jon Beason should only miss 12 weekswith a fracture in his right foot, meaning he is not in danger of missing significant time this regular season. It’s a bullet dodged for Beason owners as he bounced back with the Giants last year.
Lions quarterback Matthew Stafford did not have a good day, going 25 of 42 for 222 yards and two interceptions with no touchdowns. He had a largely ineffective Calvin Johnson going which shows, yet again, how Stafford performs without him. It’s an interesting case for 2014.
Lions running back Joique Bell took over the running back role in Detroit with 91 yards rushing on 20 carries and a touchdown along with ten catches for 63 yards. If Stafford fails to get anything going downfield, Bell is looking like his safety valve.
Giants linebacker Jon Beason continues to play well with his new team, racking up 11 more tackles. He’s had 84 tackles in 10 games in New York. His cap number in 2014 shoots up so don’t expect Beason back.
Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III had a decent night, going 24 of 32 for 207 yards and a touchdown while rushing for 88 yards. However, these games have been few and far in between. Year three for RG3 will be the real test on just how good he can be.
Redskins receiver Pierre Garcon led the team in targets (again) with 12, hauling in nine for 61 yards but did lose a fumble. At least Garcon’s play hasn’t suffered along with RG3’s. As long as he’s the top target in Washington, he’ll get his.
Giants linebacker Jon Beason had 17 tackles along with a tackle for a loss. Since being traded from Carolina, Beason has put together 57 tackles in seven games and played well. However, with a huge raise in store for 2014, Beason will likely be cut and on the move. Beason put together good seasons when healthy and needs to do that again if he’s going to regain his Pro Bowl form.
