14:10—Collins is now 0-8. He’s been getting some pressure, but he’s been misfiring with time to throw, too.

13:49—A good stick by Blades stops Jacobs in his tracks.

13:10—Jacobs drops another pass. At least Manning is getting the ball close enough to his receivers for them to drop it.

12:44—Collins’ first completion is a good one—35 yards to Moss.

12:15—Then to Yoder for 30 and the Skins are knocking on the door. He hit Yoder in stride.

10:17—Not quite enough zip as Collins had a wide-open Cooley in the end zone. Another field goal attempt coming.

I’m not sure if the wind kept that ball from going wide left or if it was the spin. It looked like it might wander, but it took a sharp right and made it in with plenty to spare.

10:12—The Redskins are playing it very close to the vest. It looks like they’re waiting for Manning or Jacobs to make the big mistake.

10:05—Even on a fumbled kick, the Skins kickoff team can’t seal the deal. They have a chance to get Bradshaw inside the 10, but he gets out near the 15.

8:39—Another drop, this time by tight end Matthews.

8:26—This time a Redskin drops a Manning pass. Doughty jumped the pass, had two hands on it, and couldn’t bring it in. Another three and out but that time they got the big mistake they were looking for but couldn’t take advantage.

6:46—A great wind-aided roll leads to a 51-yard Frost punt. Giants will start inside the 10. If the Skins can get another score on the board before halftime and keep the Giants with the goose egg on their side they’ll have a real good shot. Of course, we all know what a halftime lead means with this crew.

6:28—After that initial 17-yard run, Jacobs hasn’t done much of anything, 11 carries for 27 yards.

5:35—The younger Moss just gave up what would have been a big first down for New York by trying to make a big play. He caught the ball a yard past the sticks but went back towards the line and Torrence made a sure tackle.

5:12—Skins get the ball at midfield after the punt. Time to make a move.

5:04—They had it, but Moss couldn’t hang on to a pass that wasn’t perfect but quite catchable.

4:16—Got it this time, a big play to Moss on third and nine. 34 yards to the 15. Moss had the flypaper hands on that one.

Who says the third-down draw won’t work?

1:58—Doughty just got into Manning’s grill, forcing an incompletion. Third and one, a situation the Giants have not handled well so far.

1:51—Bad, bad play by Landry after a great, great play. He pops the ball out of Burress’ hands and then taunts him. Dumb, dumb, dumb. The rookie needs to grow up.

1:20—Two passes near Redskin hands again but no pick. Giants will try a field goal.

Landry cost them three points. I think Joe Gibbs was very tempted to use words stronger than “buns” when he saw that penalty.

1:00—Another big draw, this time by Portis. A big run of 31 yards and another 15 for a face mask.

0:22—They ran the same play three times in a row—the draw to Portis after the pump fake—and they went from their 30 to a first and goal at the eight.

0:04—Another FG try after two incomplete and a sack.

It was 17-3 at the half in September a we all well remember. There is a long way to go.
