Redskins Vs. Giants Score Update: Washington Dominates First Half, Leads 17-3

Statistics show the Washington Redskins dominating the New York Giants, and the scoreboard backs it up. Washington leads 17-3 at halftime in a game the Giants need to win for a playoff berth. The Giants tacked on a field goal by Lawrence Tynes at the end of the half to get back to that margin.

The Redskins offense have racked up 14 first downs, while the Giants have gained just six. Most of the Giants offense came on a drive late in the half that resulted in a field goal.

Washington quarterback Rex Grossman has thrown for more than 120 yards and a touchdown pass to receiver Santana Moss. Fullback Darrel Young added a touchdown, busting a six-yard run while overpowering the Giants linebackers.

Turnovers continue to be a problem for the Redskins. Grossman threw an interception on the first offensive play of the game and followed it up with another interception later in the game. Giants quarterback Eli Manning has thrown the ball well, but his receivers have let him down time a few times in the first half with drops. Manning threw an interception on a tipped pass, when Redskins safety Oshiomogho Atogwe made an impressive diving catch for the pick.
