It will be very tough for the Redskins here, but they’re not out of it. New York gets the kickoff and another turnover would be ideal.

By the way, I think the Skins have to find an alternative to Suisham. He has lost it and this is no time for him to try to find it.

13:20—A four and out for the Giants and the Redskins will get the ball at their own 20. Hall had an interception, but Springs swooped in and in the collision the ball fell to the turf. They would have had the ball right about where they are anyway.

12:29—Campbell gave Kelly a chance to jump up and make a play, but he dropped the deep sideline pass. That’s two third-down conversions in a row that have been killed via the drop. To be fair, it does look like a Giant grazed the ball, but it did hit Kelly in the hands. I like the approach, it’s getting more aggressive, but the execution hasn’t been there.

The Giants could be at the point where the Redskins can’t catch them after that. It’s not out of the question that the Redskins could get two more touchdowns if they hold on to third-down passes. But the prospect of holding the Giants scoreless for the rest of the game is very dim.

6:36—Another trick play works as Randle El goes to Cooley for 11 yards and a first down.

It’s for naught, though, as a deep Campbell pass down the middle gets picked off. It was not a good throw at all, late and shallow.

3:50—It looked like the Redskins had come up with a big play, a third-down sack, but an offside flag wiped it out. A very big little penalty as it gives the Giants a first down and they’re on the move.
