The Star-Ledger-USA TODAY Sports

Washington scored the only touchdown of the first quarter.

The Washington Redskins scored the only touchdown of the first quarter on Monday night, and they lead the New York Giants, 7-3.

The Giants opened the scoring on their first possession of the game when Eli Manning orchestrated an 11-play, 69-yard drive that lasted over six minutes and concluded with a Lawrence Tynes 39-yard field goal.

Manning was 4-of-5 passing for 54 yards, and Ahmad Bradshaw rushed four times for 15 yards on the drive.

The Redskins answered on their ensuing offensive possession when Robert Griffin III scrambled on a quarterback option and fumbled the ball right into the arms of Joshua Morgan. Morgan then rushed 15 yards into the end zone to put the Redskins ahead, 7-3, with 4:16 remaining in the first quarter.

Morgan's score concluded a four-play, 80-yard drive by Washington.

Alfred Morris rushed four times for 33 yards, while Griffin was 2-of-5 passing for 36 yards and had one carry for 12 yards.

The Giants have six first downs and 117 total yards of offense after the first quarter, but still trail by four.
