The first quarter of the NFL season opener between the Washington Redskins and New York Giants is in the books, and the Giants still have a 7-0 lead. The Redskins were poised to cut into it after driving into the red zone, but kicker Graham Gano pushed a 39-yard field goal attempt wide.
The Giants got on the board when Eli Manning ran for a two-yard touchdown, on a play set up by a 68-yard pass from Manning to Hakeem Nicks. Washington responded by driving the ball inside the Giants' 20-yard line before a sack ended the momentum. Gano, who was perfect in the preseason, missed the 39-yard field goal wide right.
Grossman has been victimized by drops and heavy pressure from the Giants, but is starting to find a way to move the ball. Tim Hightower has been busy as well.
