Redskins Vs. Titans: Redskins Take Lead On Graham Gano Field Goal After Long Drive

The Redskins have ran 32 plays to the Titan's 10. If you're looking at the offensive yardage totals, the game shouldn't be close, but it's nice to finally see the Redskins in the lead after all their hard work.

Washington came into this game with the worst third down offense in the league, and maybe even the worst third down offense of all time. But on this scoring drive, the team converted three straight third downs before stalling out inside the 10-yard line.

On the final play of the first quarter, Donovan McNabb converted a third-and-16 to Joey Galloway, shocking many Titans fans who had no idea he was still in the league. McNabb targeted and connected with Santana Moss on two other third down plays, including a shovel pass that took the Redskins down to the five-yard line.

On the final third down of the drive though, the Redskins turned to Mike Sellers. On one of Jim Zorn's favorite play calls, Sellers was expectedly stopped at the line, and Washington had to settle for a Graham Gano field goal.
