Redskins Beat Giants 22-10 to Stay in Playoff Hunt

New York Giants running back Brandon Jacobs (27) tries to hold onto the ball as he is tackled by Washington Redskins' linebacker Khary Campbell (50) during the fourth quarter NFL football Sunday, Dec. 16, 2007 at Giants Stadium in East Rutherford, N.J. The Redskins won 22-10.

The Redskins used a blend of timely offense and stingy defense in wind-swept Giants Stadium to top the New York Giants, 22-10.  Clinton Portis rushed for 126 yards and a touchdown and Shaun Suisham booted three field goals for the “Burgundy and Gold.”  Starting an NFL game for the first time in more than a decade, Todd Collins hit on just eight-of-25 passes for 166 yards for Washington.  Ladell Betts ran for a score and Santana Moss had three catches for 75 yards for the Redskins, who evened their record at seven wins and seven losses.  Eli Manning also struggled for New York, completing 18-of-52 passes for 184 yards and a touchdown.  Brandon Jacobs ran for 130 yards.  The Giants have dropped three straight at home and still need a win or a tie in their last two games to get into the postseason.  Washington plays the Minnesota Vikings this coming Sunday night in another must-win situation to stay alive for a wild card playoff spot.
