Eli Manning tossed a 77-yard touchdown pass to Victor Cruz with less than two minutes remaining to send the New York Giants to a 27-23 triumph over the Washington Redskins in an NFC East clash on Sunday at MetLife Stadium.
New York led 20-16 with 2:55 remaining, but Robert Griffin III led the Redskins on a 7-play, 77-yard scoring drive to grab the lead.
Griffin converted a do-or-die 4th-and-10 by eluding a pair of New York defenders in the backfield before finding Logan Paulsen for 19 yards.
After the two-minute warning, Griffin scrambled 24 yards into New York territory and two plays later, the rookie quarterback floated a 30-yard touchdown pass to Santana Moss to give Washington a 23-20 edge.
But in typical Manning fashion, the veteran signal-caller answered on the second play of New York's ensuing drive, as he found Cruz streaking down the seam for the go-ahead score.
The Redskins had one final try, but Moss fumbled the ball back to the Giants, who went into the victory formation to seal the win. Source: Sports Network Attached Thumbnails

Captain Comeback Scott Kacsmar has another record for Eli Manning, a bad record for Cam Newton, the good/bad/ugly Patriots, and Bengals bomb at home versus Pittsburgh again.
Robert Griffin III came to the New York-metropolitan area and put on a show. He ran. He threw. He dodged New York Giants' defenders with breakaway speed and left many shaking their heads and bemoaning another meeting down the road.
The rookie sensation left something else on the field. A couple of costly turnovers and way too much time for Eli Manning to pull off another fourth...

While it hurts to fathom, especially from the eyes of a New England native, Eli Manning is undoubtedly the best clutch quarterback going right now in the NFL.
Yes, Tom Brady led the Patriots to a comeback victory on Sunday over the hated Jets, but it marked the first time he had done so since the AFC title game last year against Baltimore. Most importantly, in...

Before you crucify the Redskins secondary for allowing Victor Cruz to get behind them, lets talk about what an explosive play maker Cruz has become.
Right now I believe he is the most explosive offensive player in the NFL. With his 77 yard game winning touchdown yesterday Cruz has the most touchdown catches over 70 yards (6) of...
After a busy week of football we are now basically at the midpoint of the season. Some teams have disappointed and some teams have impressed.

That big Philip Rivers-for-Eli Manning trade the San Diego Chargers pulled off on draft day 2004 is now essentially a one-for-one deal.
Kicker Nate Kaeding, obtained with one of the three draft picks the Chargers got that day along with Rivers, was released from injured reserve Tuesday and became a free agent.
He'll collect $1.1 million in termination pay.
