Redskins 28, Giants 14: A Look Back

Let's take a quick, painful look back at the New York Giants 28-14 loss to the Washington Redskins Sunday.

It Was Over When ... Jabar Gaffney scored on a four-yard pass from Rex Grossman to make the score 28-14 with 5:11 to play in the game.

Turning Point ... Ryan Kerrigan's tip and interception return for a touchdown just three plays into the second half. It gave Washington its first lead, 21-14, and seemed to send the Giants into panic mode.

Next Up ... The Giants (0-1) face the St. Louis Rams (0-1) in Monday Night Football next week. St. Louis lost to Philadelphia Sunday, 31-13.

Three Good Stats

  1. Red Zone Efficiency: The Giants did not do a lot on offense, but they did score two touchdowns in three trips to the red zone.
  2. Four Sacks: The Giants, even without Osi Umenyiora and Justin Tuck, were able to put pressure on Grossman. When they couldn't is when they got in trouble.
  3. There isn't a third good one.

Three Bad Stats

Reality is, there are a lot more than three bad ones. Let's pick the worst three, though.

  1. 305 Yards Passing Allowed: To Rex Grossman? With Tom Brady, Michael Vick, Drew Brees, Aaron Rodgers and Tony Romo on the upcoming schedule? Yikes!
  2. 1-for-10 On Third Down: Pitiful. Bad blocking, dropped passes, questionable play calls. The Giants' offense has issues.
  3. Eight Penalties: The Giants were undisciplined, taking some bad penalties, The worst was Antrel Rolle's personal foul in the fourth quarter that turned a Washington 4th-and-2 into a first down and led to the Redskins' final touchdown.
