A pair of field goals by kicker Gano Graham has helped the Washington Redskins take a 13-10 halftime lead over the New York Jets in a Week 13 NFL match up at FedEx Field in Landover, MD. Graham's second made field goal of the quarter, a 23-yarder, came with just 24 seconds to go in the half and was set up by a muffed punt by Jets' wide receiver Jeremy Kerley. The Redskins (4-7) recovered the ball at New York's 16-yard line and just five plays later took a three-point advantage after Graham's kick split the uprights.
The Jets lone points of the second quarter came on a field goal by kicker Nick Folk, who nailed a 45-yard field goal with 3:12 remaining in the second and tied the game at 10. Folk's kick answered Graham's first field goal of the day, which was made from 33-yards out and just 3:23 seconds into the second.
Wasington began the game with a eight-play, 82-yard opening drive that ended with a two-yard touchdown run by running back Roy Helu, who helped give the Redskins a 7-0 advantage just 4:33 into the contest. New York answered and tied the game on its next possession when running back Shonn Greene scored a touchdown on a one-yard plunge. Greene's third touchdown of the season capped a 17-play, 74-yard drive that ended with 1:19 to play in the first.
