RUN OFFENSE F
Quinton Ganther, the only back to touch the ball in the first 35 minutes, finished with 21 yards on 10 carries after scoring two touchdowns in his first start last week. Jason Campbell scrambled for 16 yards to pick up Washington’s initial first down with just 3:22 left in the first half.
PASS OFFENSE F
The pass protection protected as well as a muscle shirt in a snowstorm. The Giants came around both ends and up the middle to pound Campbell, injuring his right shoulder on their third sack of the first half. Todd Collins came in and hit Santana Moss for 46 yards. Campbell threw one touchdown pass for each team.
RUN DEFENSE D+
The Redskins did OK against Brandon Jacobs, holding their burly nemesis to an 3.25-yard average on 16 carries, but backup Ahmad Bradshaw ran for 61 yards and a pair of first-half touchdowns on just nine carries. The Giants’ offensive line blew the Redskins off the ball most of the night.
PASS DEFENSE F
Eli Manning must have been grinning whenever he dropped back and surveyed the field because his targets seemed constantly wide open. LaRon Landry had one of his trademark missed tackles. Reed Doughty, Kareem Moore and Brian Orakpo got burned, too. Albert Haynesworth had a sack, but Andre Carter and Orakpo were quiet.
SPECIAL TEAMS F
Hunter Smith’s fake field goal pass was intercepted and run back 49 yards. Graham Gano’s first extra point attempt was blocked. The Redskins averaged just 13 yards on their first five kickoff returns and gained a yard on their lone punt return. The Giants returned the first two punts for a 12-yard average. A rare awful game on special teams.
After five weeks of getting a roster minus Chris Samuels, Chris Cooley, Clinton Portis, et al., to play consistently good football, it all came apart for Jim Zorn. The Redskins were outclassed and overrun from the get-go. The only question was which was worse: his offense, Greg Blache’s defense or Danny Smith’s special teams.
