"It was great to see
the Giants win back to back games after sitting through so many straight losses.
The weather was great for a football game today and it paid to stay in your seat
to the very last second of the first half instead of heading off for refreshments.
It sure looked like a touchdown when Robert Griffin III flew into the endzone
and tipped the pylon, but it was overturned on review and with no time left the
half officially ended. The excitement was kind of extended when all hell broke
lose down on the field between the refs and some of the Redskin players.
Moss was ejected for the way he went about his 'extreme displeasure' with the
reversal on the call. The funny thing though is that the refs on the field being
yelled at were actually the ones that called it a touchdown. The play is reviewed
by a Command Center that tells them what they saw. Moss drew two penalties that
were enforced on the kickoff at the start of the second half.
The Giants jumped
on the opportunity to try an onside kick from the Washington 35 yard line and
it worked. A few plays later Josh Brown kicked a field goal to tie the game at
10-10. Later in the quarter the Redskins were on a 3rd and 6 from their own 11
yard line and Griffin hit Andre Roberts with a pass that went 61 yards and would
have been a touchdown if Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie didn't race him downfield
for a tackle. They were held to a field goal, which gave the Redskins a 13-10
After that it was all Giants as Eli connected with Odell Beckham Jr.
for two more touchdowns, giving the rookie three on the day. The Giants could
have played better on some plays where it seemed they forget how to cover in the
secondary, but at least it was a good day for the fans at the stadium."
"The Giants did a lot of things right in this game, but they also got a bit
of help from the Redskins. Santana Moss blew up after what he, and a few others,
thought was a bad call by the refs and that hurt his team. Moss was ejected and
it gave the Giants an extra possession when they converted on an onside kick because
of better field position. It netted the Giants a field goal for their efforts
and they tied the score. Overall the Redskins drew 10 penalties for 135 yards.
On the Giants side, Rashad Jennings had only 1 carry for 3 yards and then
left the game after reinjuring his ankle. With that the Giants running game also
left for the day. Andre Williams had 18 carries for 44 yards and that's an average
of only 2.4 yards a carry. Getting the ball to him using a pass worked only once
in four attempts. Luckily the Giants could draw on their main feature attraction,
which of course is throwing the ball to Odell Beckham Jr. Eli Manning did that
15 times and Beckham came down with 12 of them. Beckham stole the show again as
the Giants notched their second straight win. Beckham had those 12 receptions
for 143 yards and caught all three touchdown passes.
we said last week, the level of competition was just right for this Giants team
at this point as they move from being just a lousy team to a mediocre one, although
you know where they'd be if Beckham wasn't on the field. To
their credit, Kevin Ogletree, Larry Donnell, Corey Washington and Daniel Fells
caught all the passes that Manning threw their way (7).
Considering where they
are at this point in time, both the Giants and Redskins players were into this
game and played well for their coaches and fans. This week
the Giants are up against a team that is hard to score on. In the last five games
the St. Louis Rams have given up less than five points a game, just 46 in all,
and in the last three just 12. Once
again the Giants are stepping up a class as they try to win out in their last
two games for a semi-respectable finish."
