Redskins Vs. Titans: Overtime Coming As Graham Gano Winning Field Goal Falls Short

With the game tied 16-16 and the Redskins getting the ball on their own 22-yard line with 1:37 remaining in the game, all questions about cardiovascular endurance and knowledge of the two-minute offense disappeared.

Donovan McNabb stepped on the field, and he led his team down the field and gave them the opportunity to win. McNabb moved the ball 49-yards on eight plays, including a great third down conversion to infrequently used Brandon Banks. But unfortunately for the Redskins, the drive came up just a few yards short of Graham Gano's range.

The 47-yard field goal attempt should have been within Gano's range, as his career long is 49. The snap was good, the hold was good, and the kick was straight, but it hit the ground short of the goalpost.

The entire game has been back-and-forth, with both teams trading field goals throughout the contest. Heading now into overtime though, the next team to score will be the victor.
