Redskins Vs. Patriots Score Update: Washington Leads New England, 17-14, After Brandon Banks Hits Santana Moss On Trick Play

The Washington Redskins lead the New England Patriots 17-14 at the start of the second quarter at FedEx Field. On the opening play of the second quarter, Brandon Banks hit Santana Moss down the left sideline. Kyle Shanahan pulled out the trickery against the AFC's best team, as quarterback Rex Grossman handed it off to Roy Helu who then flipped it to Banks  on a reverse. Banks underthrew it badly on the run but still hit Moss who was wide open. Moss broke a tackle and scampered in to complete the 49 yard touchdown play.

A late first quarter touchdown had cut the Pats' lead to four, as Grossman found Jabar Gaffney for a nine yard touchdown. Gaffney was wide open in the back of the end zone and Grossman hit him in stride streaking across to the right side.

The Patriots scored on both the offensive and defensive side of the ball in the first fifteen minutes. They struck first when Vince Wilfork fell on a Rex Grossman fumble in the end zone. Gross man was hit from the blind side by former Redskin Andre Carter, jolting the ball loose in the end zone. Tom Brady would hit Rob Gronkowski for an 11 yard touchdown for the Pats' second score.

But the trickery has the Skins up 17-14 as the second quarter warms up.
