Giants Vs. Redskins Score Update: Jabar Gaffney Touchdown Gives Redskins 28-14 Lead

It looks like the Washington Redskins are on their way to winning their season opener over the New York Giants. That's the case after Rex Grossman found Jabar Gaffney for a four-yard touchdown pass to give the Redskins a 28-14 lead with just 5:04 left in the game.

The Redskins were put in that position thanks to a 22-yard catch and run by Fred Davis on third down that brought the ball inside the 10-yard line. Two plays later, Gaffney snuck inside the cornerback on a slant, and the Redskins took the two-touchdown lead.

It's been a good day for Redskins newcomers. Tim Hightower and Gaffney have touchdowns, and Ryan Kerrigan and seventh-round draft pick Chris Neild have made huge plays defensively.
