Packers Vs. Redskins: Graham Gano Misses Chance To Tie Game

Redskins kicker Graham Gano has a big leg, but has yet to prove he can be accurate from long distances. That trend continued just now, as he pushed a 51-yard field goal wide right that would have tied the game against the Packers at 13. 

The Redskins got in position thanks to two big plays by Anthony Armstrong, one that happened when he caught a tipped pass and scampered forward for a first down on 3rd and 9. However, McNabb missed Joey Galloway on a third down pass, forcing Gano into the 51 yarder. It looked like Santana Moss was open underneath on the play.

The Packers now have the ball with under seven minutes left.
