Halftime is the enemy of any team with momentum, because they risk cooling off in the locker room.
But the Redskins are sizzling like fajitas in the second half, with DeAngelo Hall picking off Eli Manning on the second play from scrimmage. The interception was a one-handed beauty, good for Hall’s third pick of the year and 35th of his career.
This is only the second time all season that the Redskins have had two interceptions in a game, and the first time since Week 6 against the Eagles.
With the play, both opening drives of the respective halves ended quickly in turnovers. The difference is that the Redskins capitalized with points, as Graham Gano booted it through from 43 yards out. Washington back on top by 17: 20-3.
There’s a surreal sense of disappointment in the stadium right now. When the Giants are on defense, there’s no emotion, even on third down plays. Giants players are walking on and off the field, seemingly in a daze. The only thing anyone has shown exci...

The 2011 New York Giants football season can be summed up with one word – nauseating. As a lifelong fan and season ticket holder, it is hard to remember a year with such drama each and every Sunday. Never is a deficit too large when Eli Manning is at the helm, but with this porous defense, no lead is ever safe. Even after throwing a critical interception against the Cowboys...
Amid a chorus of boos from the crowd on Sunday, the New York Giants dropped a home game to divisional foe Washington Redskins 23-10, you know have to wonder if the season is now finished for the New York Giants this season. With the loss to the Redskins, the Giants now move out of first place in the NFC East race and a trip to the playoffs now is in serious jeopardy...
Tim Tebow, Aaron Rodgers and other quarterbacks are getting a lot of the focus this season, but the Giants' Eli Manning is worthy of our attention too.
Did Sunday cost the New York Giants the playoffs?
With the Dallas Cowboys winning Saturday, the G-Men had to keep pace. Fortunately the Giants were playing a weak 4-9 Redskin team…or not. The Giants only put up 10 and the Skins threw up 23. Even with the Giants having the leading passer (Eli Manning, 257 yards) and the leading rusher (Ahmad Bradshaw, 58 yards); they still tanked...
Washington Redskins – 23, New York Giants – 10
Not quite the shocker of the Packers-Chiefs game, but this one was a bit of a surprise in its own right. Rex Grossman (185 yards, 1 TD, 2 INTs) and the Redskins went into the New Meadowlands and crushed the Giants’ postseason hopes. Of course,Eli Manning’s (257 yards, 0 TDs, 3 INTs) implosion had a lot to do with that, as...
Phil Simms joined Francesa on WFAN for the NFL Now. Simms will be doing the DEN-NE game.1) Eli Manning- He is the man for the Giants. He has steadily gotten better. Throwing the football better. Give Gilbride a lot of credit. The WRs fit that system. Victor Cruz is not a secret anymore. Manning to Nicks as good as most in the NFL.2) Phillip Rivers- Rivers got hot...

On the Sunday before Hanukkah and Christmas, the New York Giants inexplicably played flatter than potato pancakes and ginger bread cookies.
Yet, even more incredibly, they still control their own playoff destiny after losing for the fifth time in six games during the second half of the regular season.
Only now, there’s no more room for error, as New York (7-7) must...
