Reports of their demise have been greatly exaggerated as the Redskins did enough good things at the right times in a must-win situation to topple the defending Super Bowl champion Giants. The win moves the Redskins to 3-1 in their division, 6-6 on the season and very much alive in the playoff picture.

RGIII didn't have the best day, but he connected with Garcon eight times for 106 yards and a touchdown that proved to be the difference on the scoreboard.

Perhaps the bigger story is the Redskins defense stepping up late and Morris eclipsing 100 yards for the game and 1,000 yards for the season, driving Washington's offense for most of the game. 

Washington welcomes Baltimore to FedEx Field next week as they look to extend their streak to four games and make the playoffs more than just a pipe dream.

Giants 16, Redskins 17
