Redskins Vs. Giants: Rex Grossman Connects With Fred Davis To Cut Giants' Lead To 3

After using Ryan Torain often on their previous drive, the Redskins trusted Rex Grossman to take control of the two-minute offense at the end of the first half. Grossman utilized his tight ends to march 80 yards down the field for Washington's first score of the game.

The Redskins threw the ball five times on the six-play drive, turning to Torain only inside the five-yard line for a rushing attempt on first and goal. Grossman had passes to Chris Cooley for 16-yards, Fred Davis for 19-yards, Santana Moss for 18-yards, and Keiland Williams for 23-yards.

In the end Grossman turned back to Davis on a playaction fake for the score. With heavy pressure up the middle, Grossman lofted the ball high across the goal line and found a wide open Davis for the touchdown.

The Giants now lead 10-7 heading into halftime, where they'll probably all take a quick glance at the score in Green Bay. The Giants need the Packers to lose for them to remain in the NFL playoff picture, and Bears are currently leading by three points.
