Redskins Vs. Lions: Ndamukong Suh Scores For Lions' On Rex Grossman's First Play Of 2010

Rex Grossman hasn't played a single snap in 2010. Mike Shanahan entrusted Grossman though with the Redskins' final chance to steal a win in Detroit. With less than two minutes remaining in a hotly contested game that included five lead changes, this was a new development that no one expected.

Washington started what we thought would be their final drive on their own 30-yard line. And then, a surprisingly fresh face entered the field: Rex Grossman.

Donovan McNabb remained on the sideline, and does not appear to have suffered any injury. He was likely removed purely for ineffectiveness. As it turns out though, Grossman was not any more effective.

On his first play of 2010, Grossman was sacked by Kyle Vanden Bosch and dropped the ball just as he was preparing to make a throw. The ball was recovered by Ndamukong Suh, who easily ran into the end zone for the first touchdown of his short career.
