A sloppy second half turned into a nail-biter down the stretch, with Robert Griffin III converting the third fourth down of the day en route to a 30-yard touchdown pass to Santana Moss to take the lead.

The victory was short-lived, as the Giants responded with a 77-yard touchdown pitch and catch from Manning to Cruz that put the G-Men back on top.

Griffin threw an interception and the Redskins lost three fumbles, the final turnover dashing their comeback hopes. The Redskins defense had no answers for most of the game, and their offense couldn't move with Morris being shut down in the second half.

Final Score: Redskins 23, Giants 27
