Redskins defensive tackle Barry Cofield said plenty of good things about the Giants offense. But he couldn’t help throwing a little jab at his old quarterback. The former Giant lauded his old club for having a “top-five offense,” and he celebrated Eli Manning.

Rob Ryan's defense has many questions to answer after allowing Eli Manning to torch them again.
One more day to gloat and dissect Sunday’s game. Some reactions:
