Gridiron Gab Rapid Recap: Giants Pull Out Late Win 27-23 Over Redskins

By Troy Jefferson

The Washington Redskins were searching for a signature win when they took on the New York Giants this afternoon. Washington defeated Minnesota handily last week and the Giants were coming off a big win against the 49ers.

The Redskins settled for a short Kai Forbath 20-yard field goal after a 17-play drive. A would be Josh Morgan touchdown was called back because of a Fred Davis illegal shift, Davis would injure his leg later in the half and is done for the season. New York found ways to hold the Redskins to three points instead of touchdowns and was key for them in securing their first division win.

The G-Men drove down the field early in the second quarter for a short touchdown by Andre Brown and took the lead. Washington responded with a well drawn up Santana Moss screen that went to the house.

The Redskins had no problems running the ball in the first half, Alfred Morris was almost able to eclipse the 100 yard mark before halftime. New York and Washington went back and forth on field goals to end the half tied 13-13.
