My pleaseure! It's been too long since this rivalry "mattered" to everyone else as much as it does to Redskin fans. I was getting really ticked whenever I'd hear Cowpie fans saying they more "felt sorry" for us for being so bad... blah, blah, blah. Now what? Skins just went to their house on Thanksgiving and had people chanting for our QB. Hahaha! I love it!!! Best Thanksgiving ever!

Ahhh, the Big Apple, so many newspapers from which to choose. Let's start with the New York Post:

RG3, Redskins cut Giants' lead to one

RG3 overwhelms Giants, leads Washington back into NFC East race
By BART HUBBUCH

ImageN.Y. Post: Charles Wenzelberg
SOME ROOKIE: Quarterback Robert Griffin III escapes Mathias Kiwanuka on a play in the second half of last night’s 17-16 Redskins victory at FedEx Field. Griffin ran for 72 yards on five attempts, leaving him with 714 rushing yards on the season.

LANDOVER, Md. — The Kid had FedEx Field rocking like it was RFK Stadium in the glory days last night.

It had been five long, frustrating years since Washington last played a truly meaningful December home game, but Robert Griffin III made it worth the wait in a 17-16 victory over the Giants that had the capacity crowd of 80,246 singing “Hail to the Redskins” at the top of their lungs on the way out.

The Giants had seen this before from the sensational rookie quarterback, who torched them for nearly 400 all-purpose yards out of the option attack in a close October loss at the Meadowlands, but that didn’t mean Big Blue had any better solution for Griffin the second time around.

“We weren’t going to let this one slip away,” Griffin said as he did his postgame press conference from the podium while still in full uniform, including cleats, arm sleeve and glove. “We took the approach that this was the only game we had, and that if we lost, our season was done.”

Although Griffin didn’t have the same gaudy numbers in the primetime rematch, he was just as effective — and the end result was certainly better — as the 6-6 Redskins got back to .500 and continued a surprising run of mastery over their NFC East rivals.

This wasn’t all Griffin’s doing (rookie back Alfred Morris and veteran wideout Pierre Garcon also came up big), but the reigning Heisman Trophy winner from Baylor was certainly the catalyst, completing 13-of-21 passes for 163 yards, a passing touchdown and 73 rushing yards.

Even when Griffin messed up, it worked out. In one of the more remarkable plays in any NFL game this year, Griffin’s first-quarter fumble at the Giants 13-yard line ended up in the arms of receiver Josh Morgan, who took it the rest of the way to the end zone.

“It was a pitch,” Griffin said, grinning. “It was totally by design. I knew Josh was going to be there ready for that touchdown, so that’s what we did. I’m sticking with that story.”

No wonder Redskins fans were chanting “RG3!” throughout the fourth quarter and as Griffin and the Redskins sprinted jubilantly off the field following their third consecutive victory.

“The fans love him so much that they were chanting ‘RG3!’ really loud while we were on offense,” Redskins center Will Montgomery said with a laugh in a jubilant postgame locker room. “That’s great, but they’re going to work on that.”

Griffin’s poise was most on display on the Redskins’ final drive, which he turned into a game-clincher. Washington took over with 3:51 left clinging to a one-point lead and the Giants still holding two timeouts. Griffin responded by leading the Redskins to two first downs that salted away the team’s third victory in the past two seasons over Big Blue.

“I just told them on the sideline, ‘Let’s go finish this game,’ ” said Griffin, who had an eight-yard scramble and a 17-yard completion to key the drive. “We just needed to have that, to give us the confidence that we can end the game with four or five minutes left. And we did it.”

Griffin, settling for field goals do in Giants as East tightens
By PAUL SCHWARTZ

ImageReuters
GAME-WINNER: Pierre Garcon celebrates his 8-yard touchdown reception in the fourth quarter, which gave the Redskins a 17-16 win in Landover, Md., last night.


LANDOVER, Md. — The Giants did not put a stranglehold on the NFC East, certainly didn’t subdue the raging threat that is Robert Griffin III and the upstart Redskins, and ensured the stretch run might be just as angst-ridden as last year’s fight to the finish.

“We’ve been down these roads before, it’s always tough and I like it that way,’’ Justin Tuck said.

There is no way anyone associated with the Giants can like it this way, not after they did last night what they almost never do — blow a halftime lead on the road — and as a result they are going to have nightmares of RG3 and Alfred Morris dancing all over them. After wasting chances and still entering the fourth quarter with a 16-10 lead, the Giants couldn’t hold off the Redskins and Eli Manning couldn’t get a sniff of a comeback drive, which added up to a 17-16 loss that was as damaging to the Giants as it was frustrating.

“We still have all of our goals ahead of us, would have loved to have gotten this win and separated ourselves in the division,’’ Mathias Kiwanuka said. “But we made the road a little tougher, and now we gotta slug through it.”

By blowing a fourth-quarter lead, the Giants (7-5) hold a tenuous one-game lead on the Cowboys (6-6) and Redskins (6-6) for first place in the NFC East.

“There’s one team with seven [wins], two with six wins with four to go,’’ said Tom Coughlin, who might as well have added “You do the math.’’

This one didn’t add up for the Giants. Dating to 2006, they had won 26 straight games on the road when they led at halftime, which they did in this one, 13-10. This time, they could not finish the job and they breathed life into the Redskins, winners of three straight.

“I hate those mother-[bleepers],’’ Redskins owner Daniel Snyder exclaimed to one of his staffers in his team’s locker room.

The Giants want no part of Snyder’s club, not after they barely beat the Redskins the first time around and couldn’t deal any better with Griffin (101.9 quarterback rating, 72 rushing yards) or Alfred Morris (22 carries, 124 yards) the second time around.

The Giants dominated the ball, were brilliant on third down and owned time of possession, but they could only manage one touchdown, falling into their familiar trap of coming up short on drives and settling for field goals. They unleashed a new bad habit, committing costly penalties — nine of them — none worse than a hold on Jim Cordle (his second of the game) that negated a huge 50-yard, fourth-quarter kickoff return by David Wilson into Washington territory. They also got a rare missed field goal from Lawrence Tynes, a 43-yarder in the second quarter.

Clinging to a 16-10 lead, the Giants couldn’t lay a glove on Griffin and couldn’t deal with the punishing Morris as the Redskins put together a 12-play, 86-yard drive, finished off when RG3 rolled to his right and easily hit a wide-open Pierre Garcon on an 8-yard touchdown pass for a one-point lead and the winning points with 11:31 remaining. The Giants got the ball twice after that and Manning couldn’t do a thing with it. The Redskins then ran off the final 3:51 to seal it without Manning getting his hands on the ball again.

“We didn’t want to give him a chance,’’ Redskins offensive tackle Trent Williams said. “He does this for a living, he’s a killer on those fourth-quarter drives.’’

The third offensive series for the Giants was a strange one. They went 85 yards on 13 plays, draining 7:23 off the clock before Manning spread the field and drilled a 4-yard touchdown pass to Martellus Bennett. The drive included three penalties on the Giants — a false start by Hakeem Nicks, a delay of game on Manning and a 10-yard hold on Sean Locklear — yet they were able to score, aided by a 21-yard pass interference penalty on cornerback Cedric Griffin against Nicks.

The Redskins, trailing 3-0, got on the board in a strange way in the first quarter. As Griffin was hit after a 12-yard run to the 13-yard line, he fell on his back and the ball popped loose — it almost looked as if he shoveled it forward — and the ball was plucked out of the air by receiver Joshua Morgan. As the Giants defenders stood flat-footed, thinking the play was over, Morgan sprinted 13 yards untouched for a touchdown to make it 7-3. That completed a four-play, 80-yard drive that resembled a fast-break attack.

“It is what it is, you can’t be down about it,’’ Manning said. “The next four games will be big games. We have to play better football and find a way to win games.’’

And then there's this entry from the New York Daily News:

Unbe-THREE-vable! Redskins rookie QB too much for Giants this time, 17-16
This time there was no late-game magic for the Giants. And now the race is on in the NFC East. The Washington Redskins tightened up the division race when they avoided another late-game meltdown and held off the defending Super Bowl champions 17-16 at FedEx Field on Monday night.

REDSKINS 17, GIANTS 16: The Giants have no one to blame but themselves for their suddenly perilous predicament. They unraveled with a season high nine penalties, including six on offense which constantly forced their high-powered attack to stall.

LANDOVER, Md. – This time the Washington Redskins didn’t give Eli Manning a chance for any late-game magic. This time they kept him pinned to the sidelines instead.

And when they finished running out the clock on the Giants and held on for a narrow, 17-16 win, they announced that the race for the NFC East title is definitely back on.

PHOTOS: WASHINGTON BEATS GIANTS BY SKINS OF THEIR TEETH

That’s because the Giants blew a chance to build on their division cushion with a stinker of an effort on Monday night. They committed a season-high nine penalties, including six by their sloppy offense, that kept them stalled for most of the game. The Giants got 280 yards from Eli Manning and 103 from Ahmad Bradshaw, but only managed to score one touchdown.

And when Robert Griffin III threw an 8-yard touchdown pass to Pierre Garcon with 11:31 remaining, the Redskins (6-6) had just enough breathing room to pull within one game of the Giants (7-5) with four games to play.

“This isn’t real complicated,” Tom Coughlin said. “I don’t know what happened in the second half. We certainly didn’t come out to play. Penalties. Sloppy football.”

That actually was the theme of the game for the defending champs, but it became much more pronounced in the second half, when the Giants were held to just a field goal. All of a sudden their defense couldn’t contain Griffin (13-for-21, 163 yards; 72 yards rushing on five carries) or running back Alfred Morris (22 carries, 124 yards). And their offense couldn’t sustain a drive.

And the penalties were killers. Such as the holding call on offensive lineman Jim Cordle after David Wilson had returned a fourth-quarter kickoff all the way to the 50. The penalty pushed the Giants back to their own 8 and they ended up going three-and-out.

When they got the ball back again, they managed to cross midfield with less than five minutes remaining on an 11-yard pass from Manning to tight end Martellus Bennett (five catches, 82 yards). But a holding penalty on left tackle Will Beatty negated that and short-circuited the drive.

ImageNew York Daily News
Victor Cruz makes big play, team doesn't earn W.

“I just think we put ourselves in bad situations,” Bennett said. “It seemed like every time we made a big play there was a penalty on us.”

“We really shot ourselves in the foot,” guard Chris Snee added. “You’re not going to win when you have that many penalties on offense. It’s not us. We didn’t play smart football.”

That much was clear from the beginning of the game. Five of the Giants’ offensive penalties came in the first half. That’s why even though they were moving the ball and dominating the time of possession (20:32 to 9:38) they were barely ahead 13-10 at halftime — and that margin came on Lawrence Tynes’ 40-yard field goal on the last play. They did score on three of their four drives – only failing on a 43-yard miss by Tynes in the second quarter.

But penalties caused three of those drives to stall before they even got close to taking a shot at the end zone.

Defensive end Justin Tuck called that “frustrating” because it was uncharacteristic. The Giants’ defense was doing a reasonably good job of keeping the Redskins in check, but the offense couldn’t get in gear at all.

“Our defense held them to 17 points,” Snee said. “For them to do that to that offense (and to lose), we didn’t do our job.”

Still, they all held out hope for one final chance even after the Redskins got the ball back with 3:51 remaining. The Giants had visions of the 77-yard touchdown pass from Manning to Victor Cruz in the final minute that had enabled them to beat the Redskins back in October.

But when Morris burst through the line for a six-yard gain on a third-and-3 with about a minute remaining, the Redskins had done the unthinkable. They ran out the clock on the Giants and kept Manning and his magic off the field.

“Terrible,” Coughlin said. “That’s what you strive for. We talk about finish, finish, finish. I thought we could do that.”

They thought they could put a virtual lock on the division, too, but now if they’re going to repeat as NFC East champs they’re going to have to do it the hard way. They have a treacherous schedule the rest of December, and the Redskins and Cowboys (6-6) are both only a game behind.

“We can’t be stunned by that,” said safety Antrel Rolle. “We made it that way.”

“It would’ve been nice to get that win to give ourselves some breathing room,” added safety Kenny Phillips. “But at the end of the day we’re still in front. This is nothing new for us.”

Playoff after the body-bag game. Ryan I has insulted Joe Gibbs and the Redskins.

Boswell (I think): Coach Gibbs, what do you think about Buddy Ryan's comments?

Gibbs, holding football, grins widely: "Buddy [smack] Ryan. Bud[smack]dy Ryan. Buddy [SMACK] Ry-an".

In the game, the Hogs ran right at Brown and White, over and over and over. Eagles scored a meaningless TD at the end, score was something like 17 - 10.
