New York Giants vs. Washington Redskins: Takeaways from Washington's 24-17 Loss

Robert Griffin III produced his most efficient performance of the season for the Washington Redskins in Week 13. But it wasn't enough to prevent a 24-17 defeat to NFC East rivals the New York Giants.

Griffin was revitalized by the use of the no-huddle attack to start the game. He also played with more patience and assurance in the pocket, particularly in the first half.

Sadly, he was stifled after the break thanks to another woeful showing from his offensive line, as well as some calamitous moments from his receivers.

But Griffin and his offense were also undermined by a defense that was too easily overpowered. While the Redskins generated pressure thanks to a star pass-rusher, they were soft against the run, particularly when it came to safety support.

Here are the main takeaways for Washington from its ninth loss of the season.
