Teams Trade Field Goals Before Half, Giants Lead 13-10

Washington's midseason kicker change has found continued success, as Kai Forbath made his eleventh straight field goal to start out his Redskin career, tying tonight's game up at ten with about 40 seconds left in the first half. Forbath hit a 33-yarder that was set up by back-to-back big passes from Robert Griffin III to Pierre Garcon for a total of 53 yards.

With limited time remaining in the half, the Giants went to work again. A five-play, 54-yard drive highlighted by a 28-yard pass to Martellus Bennett resulted in a 40-yard field goal for Lawrence Tynes. It was Tynes' second field goal made of the game, and gave New York a 13-10 lead at halftime.

Griffin has now completed 7/12 passes for 100 yards, with Garcon leading the way for both teams with five receptions for 74 yards. Eli Manning is 14/22 for 187 yards and a score, with Bennett recording five receptions for 82 yards. On the ground, Alfred Morris has six rushes for 44 yards while Ahmad Bradshaw has 15 rushes for 77 yards.
