Redskins Vs. Giants Final Score: Washington Plays Best Game Of 2011, Win 23-10

In a dominant 23-10 win over the New York Giants, the Washington Redskins played their best game of the season and dealt a crushing blow to New York's playoff hopes. Offensively the team moved the ball almost at will, and the Redskins defense intercepted Giant quarterback Eli Manning three times.

Though the team scored just two touchdowns, the offense piled up more than 300 total yards. Quarterback Rex Grossman completed a first half touchdown to receiver Santana Moss, and despite two interceptions, Grossman effectively managed the win for the Redskins.

The Giants, known for inconsistency at times, played awful in a game they really needed to win for a playoff berth. Manning threw some bad passes for interceptions and Giant receivers repeatedly dropped catchable passes.

Statistics from the game are slightly skewed by a late Giant touchdown drive against a mostly prevent Redskins defense. The game was largely out of reach by the time Ahmad Bradshaw scored for the Giants.
