Penalties doom Giants' bid for 3-0 start against Redskins

Washington scored its first touchdown of the game on a 44-yard pass from Cousins to DeSean Jackson with Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie in coverage and almost took the lead before halftime when they drove to the Giants' 4, but Jason Pierre-Paul sacked Cousins as time expired. While Richburg got congratulations from his teammates on the sidelines for protecting Odell, the Giants desperately missed his presence as the offensive line signal caller for the remainder for the game, making his hit on Norman seem even more superfluous.

The clock mismanagement started two plays before the sack.

The Giants (2-1) built a 21-9 lead on touchdown runs by Vereen and Orleans Darkwa sandwiched around a 23-yard touchdown pass from Manning to receiver Sterling Shepard. He would finish with 121 yards, the sixteenth time in his career that he topped 100 yards in a game.

The Redskins defense allowed 470 total yards.

Jamison Crowder, who ended the game with 78 yards, picked up a screen pass for a 55-yard scamper and score.

Quarterback Kirk Cousins was sacked at the end of the first half, costing his team three points because they were unable to attempt a field goal. Clearly, this game was an aberration for the Giants' disciplinary record over the past two seasons, but hurt them against Washington nonetheless. Already playing without starting safety Darian Thompson, the Giants lost another rookie in cornerback Eli Apple due to a hamstring injury he suffered in the first half.

The Redskins stunned the Giants with a fake punt that resulted in a 31-yard completion from punter Tress Way to Quinton Dunbar, leading to a go-ahead field goal by Dustin Hopkins early in the fourth quarter.

Some of those stops to hold Washington to field goals were key in keeping the game close and giving the Giants a lead deep into the fourth quarter.

NYG: S Darian Thompson (foot), OT Marshall Newhouse (calf), DT Robert Thomas (illness), RB Rashad Jennings (thumb), QB Josh Johnson, WR Roger Lewis Jr., DT Montori Hughes. QB Eli Manning, LS Zak DeOssie and LB Jonathan Casillas are the season-long captains.

In the first quarter, cornerback Bashaud Breeland exited the game with an ankle injury after awkwardly planting his leg as he braced for a tackle.
