Redskins Fall To Giants: Postgame Reaction
The Washington Redskins lost 27-23 to the New York Giants and lost a real key piece to the puzzle for the season.
Redskins tight-end Fred Davis will miss the remainder of the season with a torn Achilles. Davis had one catch for 13 yards before he tore it in the first quarter of the loss. London Fletcher also was injured with a slight hamstring strain.
“It sucks man,” Davis said. “I want to be out there playing and helping my team out.”
Robert Griffin III had another solid game throwing for 258 yards and two touchdowns while rushing for another 89 yards, but turned it over twice in the second half, once with a fumble and once with an interception, that really hurt the Skins.
“There’s never excuses for that,” Griffin III said on the interception. “I have the ball in my hand. I shouldn’t have thrown it.”
But Griffin III did lead the Redskins to a seven play, 77 yard touchdown with less than two minutes left to give them the lead, but the lead didn’t last long as Eli Manning threw it to an open Victor Cruz for a 77 yard touchdown a few seconds later.
“He was double-covered,” Redskins safety Madieu Williams said on the play. “He was able to make a play. They had something dialed up and they did a great job executing.”
Santana Moss had a big game for the Redskins, two touchdowns and 67 yards on three catches, but had a costly fumble as the Redskins were trying to march down the field in the closing minute.
“Your work ain’t done until it says zero up there on that clock,” Moss said following the loss. “That’s when your work’s done.”
