Redskins Take Lead on Griffin-Garcon Touchdown

The New York Giants have consistently outgained and outpaced the Redskins throughout this game, and yet big plays from the Washington offense have kept them in it - and they have now taken a fourth quarter lead.

After forcing a field goal on the Giants' last drive, Alfred Morris and Robert Griffin III went to work. Morris ran three times for 15 yards to start out the quarter, and Griffin completed a second-and-seven pass 14 yards to Leonard Hankerson for a first down. On first and goal, Griffin faked to Morris on the zone read, the Redskins' blocking scheme worked perfectly, and RGIII found Pierre Garcon in the end zone for a beautiful touchdown, giving Washington an 17-16 with just over 11 minutes left in the game.
