The ball was in the hands of Eli Manning. The game was on the line. All of his weapons at his disposal and two minutes to get his Giants in the field goal position. And he made the biggest mistake of the day in the NFL. Su’a Cravens made the play. What a moment for these Redskins and their defense.
They went into the MetLife Stadium after that heart-breaking loss at home to the Cowboys with a 0-2 record, and they won the game in a must-win situation for them.
Cousins had a decent day as he threw for 296 yards and two Touchdowns with no picks. Not the best day for Manning who did pass for 350 yards, but also had 1 TD to go along with his two picks. One of them was extremely costly.
Beckham Jr. and Norman did have their battles, OBJ was good and outplayed his rival on couple occasions, but it was Su’a Cravens who gave Norman and his team the win today. Crowder and Jackson were Cousins’ favorite targets while Beckham had 121 receiving yards on seven receptions.
Last week it was Kirk Cousins who threw a costly interception to give the game to the opponent. Now it was Eli Manning’s turn to do that in this rollercoaster of a division. Now, instead of having won all three games to start the season, Giants are now 2-1, and this allows Dallas to catch them and Philly to surpass them at the top of NFC East.
