Redskins Vs. Lions: Graham Gano Gives Redskins 10-7 Heading Towards Halftime

The Lions have been doing a great job of controlling the line of scrimmage. Donovan McNabb has now been sacked four times, including twice by the 2010 second overall draft pick Ndamukong Suh.

But for one play, McNabb had time to throw the ball. And the Redskins capitalized with their biggest offensive play of the game. McNabb completed a 50-yard pass down the middle of the field to wide receiver Anthony Armstrong. This was just the first reception by a Redskins wide receiver today. The second was earned by Santana Moss on the very next play on the same drive.

Washington’s drive expectedly slowed down immediately after the big completion. Ryan Torain was stopped for a loss on the next play. Then, after a McNabb run and an incompletion, the Redskins elected to kick.

Graham Gano nailed the 38-yard field goal to give the Redskins a slim 10-7 lead just before halftime.
