Redskins Giants Fourth Quarter

Nov 30, 2008, 4:57 PM EDT

Good job by the defense, turning a second and one into a fourth and one and a punt. Jacobs got stonewalled twice and the Redskins have some life as the fourth quarter starts.

11:09—The teams exchange three and outs and with still plenty of time left, the Redskins still have a chance. The New York running game still is spotty, although both Ward and Jacobs have ripped off some pretty good runs in the second half. As long as Manning has to keep throwing, the chance for a pick is there.

9:26—The chances just got a lot dimmer as Portis gains nothing on fourth and two, giving the Giants the ball back at the Washington 40. Even if the Giants go nowhere and punt, it will be a long field for the Redskins to negotiate. By the way, the imagination went away on that play, just a straight dive up the middle.

Just two touchdowns and two two-point conversions to send this one into overtime.

3:25—The final, final chance goes awry then a fourth-down pass falls to the ground. There probably should have been a pass interference call on it, but it’s not worth getting worked up over at this point in time.

I’m going to go ahead and wrap this up early, assuming that the final will remain as it is now, so that I can get downstairs to the locker room. I’ll update via Blackberry if necessary.
