The New York Giants scored the only touchdown of the second quarter and lead the Washington Redskins, 13-10, at halftime.

Lawrence Tynes had an opportunity to cut the Redskins' 7-3 lead early in the second quarter but missed a 42-yard field goal after a bad snap. The missed field goal concluded a 13-play, 61-yard drive that carried over from the first quarter to the second.

On New York's next possession, Eli Manning connected with Martellus Bennett for a 4-yard touchdown to conclude a 13-play, 85-yard drive that lasted over seven minutes to put the Giants ahead 10-7 late in the second quarter.

Robert Griffin III answered in the final minutes by driving the Redskins 51 yards in just under two minutes to setup a Kai Forbath 33-yard field to tie the game at 10-10.

With 41 seconds remaining in the second quarter, Manning drove the Giants 54 yards in six plays to setup a 40-yard field goal by Tynes as time expired to give the Giants a 13-10 lead at halftime.

Manning finished the half 14-of-22 passing for 187 yards and one touchdown. Ahmad Bradshaw led the Giants rushing attack with 15 carries for 77 yards.
