Redskins, Giants tied at 13 as both offenses impress

Josh Morgan AP

Earlier this week, Giants defensive end Jason Pierre-Paul warned Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III not to run the ball to JPP’s side of the field.

The Redskins ran the ball to all parts of the field in the first half and rolled up 146 rushing yards on their way to a 13-13 halftime tie. Alfred Morris has 94 of them as he’s bullied his way through a Giants defense that has looked alternately confused and well-blocked on many of Washington’s run plays. Griffin has 42 yards on three runs, including a 28-yard scamper to set up Kai Forbath’s second field goal. The blocking deserves credit for the lone Redskins touchdown, a screen to Santana Moss that he turned into a 26-yard touchdown as his teammates allowed no Giant within grabbing range.

All three of Washington’s possessions resulted in points, but it would have been worse if the Giants didn’t hold firm in the shadow of their own end zone. They held on the opening drive and Justin Tuck got his long awaited first sack of the season to end Washington’s final possession of the half.

The Giants offense has also moved the ball well through the first 30 minutes. Eli Manning has thrown for 186 yards, although he fired behind an open Victor Cruz in the end zone to force one of Lawrence Tynes‘ two field goals. The Giants scored on three of their four possessions, with tackle Sean Locklear jumping on a fourth-and-inches to wipe out the first possession of the game.

    The weird stuff RG3 does with his tongue before the snap really creeps me out.

    That’s why Eli Manning is elite. When the game is on the line, he gets it done! 5-2 baby!

    Great game all the way around. Not even going to comment of the td taken away be ref but cruz is a great wr. Please giant fans respect him enough to give him another cheer then the one skins have done for cooley for the past 8 yrs. That is embarrassing.

    And he makes the play to win the game eaglesfan. How about you worry about your overrated team down there and how everything is about to fall apart by the seams. Ill enjoy this win and our journey to repeat.

    Yeah, two superbowl rings, several 4th qtr comebacks, making no name receivers look like stars, yeah no big deal. He sucks.

    Good game. New York and Washington match up very evenly. Looking forward to part II in Landover.

    redskins stink! We have the last ranked DB’s in the league, they are ranked 32nd and as you just saw, for good reason! REDKSINS STINK AND THIS GAME SHOULDN’T HAVE EVEN BEEN CLOSE!

  13. jammer88 says: Oct 21, 2012 4:27 PM

    so the redskins have had the wosrt db’s in the league for over 3 years now and what do they do to shore up these not even pop warner level db’s? They sign brandon merriwheater from da bears for a ton of money, yet brandon merriweather hasn’t played down 1 yet. Oh and what was the rap on bw when he played for da bears? The rap was he was a baller, when healther. Great sign bruce allen and mike shanahan, great sign, you really know how to pick em. The skins will end up 3-13 or at best 5-11 like last season. F the skins!

    Dam boss, they still make people like you??? Shanny and Allen stepped up to get RG3 and give us the best qb since Jorgensen. Besides that we already have 3 wins and almost pulled out this one, how we gonna end up with 3 or 5 on the season? I hope your not a skins fan, if you are just go ahead to another team. I havent been this proud of the skins in like 20 years.

    Giants shaved points late, should have won by 17.

    Dam boss, having played at the college level at a D1 NCAA school for two years, I expect players making millions of dollars a year to cover a receiver on very simple post out play and to make sure that receiver doesn’t blow by him and if he does, then Dam boss, there better be some other db’s to pick him up, but dam boss, that didn’t happen, did it? Yes, I’m a big skins fan and I’m tired of seeing the highest paid players in all the NFL, the redskins players, get out played week in and week out for years in a row without putting a playoff calibur team on the field. Enuf said boss?

    Remove one member from a team and see if it performs at the same level of excellence.

    The Giants are doing it with 1/4 of their starters out on defense. Nice try.
