Giants Vs. Redskins: Ryan Kerrigan Allows Redskins To Capitalize On Turnover Chances

Ryan Kerrigan's interception return for a touchdown to give the Washington Redskins the lead against the New York Giants in their Week 1 win was a huge play because it changed the tide of the game. For Redskins fans, though, the play meant something more. For once, Washington capitalized on its chance to get a game-changing turnover.

SB Nation's Redskins blog Hogs Haven was especially relieved about that:

There were a lot of games over the past few years that should have gone the Redskins way. For example, the TWO dropped interceptions vs the Colts last season by [Carlos] Rogers. There was the same story in our loss to Pittsburgh in 2008. Regardless, turnovers are momentum turners and for years the Redskins have failed to take what is given to them...until yesterday.

Rogers is the man noted in this piece, but it could easily be anyone else. The bottom line is that the Redskins finally started forcing the turnovers they needed to win.
