Redskins Vs. Giants Score Update: Santana Moss Touchdown Gives Redskins 10-0 Lead

Despite two interceptions from quarterback Rex Grossman, the Washington Redskins lead the New York Giants, 10-0 early in the second quarter after Grossman found Santana Moss for a 20-yard touchdown. Washington dominated time of possession in the first quarter, and the Giants offense has generally sputtered.

Grossman connected with Moss for the touchdown after a long drive that saw contributions from rookie running backs Roy Helu and Evan Royster. Grossman made some good throws when not turning the ball over.

Offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan appears to be pulling out all the tricks from his playbook, as the team has already run a flea-flicker, double reverse and other reverses. The Washington defense has slowed the Giants high-octane offense, though a drop on a deep Eli Manning pass from receiver Hakeem Nicks probably cost the Giants a touchdown.
