Colts Vs. Redskins: Aaron Francisco Intercepts Donovan McNabb To End The Game

The Redskins love drama.

In a season that is just six games old, the Redskins took their opponents down to the wire for the fifth time.

In the end though, it was the Colts who prevailed, because Aaron Francisco did what Kareem Moore and Carlos Rogers could not: he caught an interception. This wasn't just any interception though. It was a one-handed grab to end the game and give the Colts a 3-point victory at FedEx Field.

The Redskins' final drive started from their own 20-yard line with 32 seconds left, but it lasted just one play as Donovan McNabb targeted Joey Galloway for a long throw on the left sideline. Francisco made a great play, and had he not made it, Galloway may have been on his way to an 80-yard winning touchdown.

The final score was 27-24. The Redskins will travel to Chicago to take on the Bears next Sunday.
