Grossman went 26 for 44 for 336 yards with two touchdowns and one interception, but he also lost two fumbles. He got his longest completion of his career when he hit Anthony Armstrong for a 64-yard touchdown pass in the fourth quarter. Grossman had seven touchdowns, four interceptions, four lost fumbles and a 1-2 record in his three starts after McNabb was benched.

The big consolation for Redskins fans was that New York didn’t make the playoffs, either.

“Their fans were all cheering and whatnot,” Cofield said. “That shows you the state of their team, that they have to cheer about us failing. That’s when you have no success; those are the kind of things that excite you.”

Notes: New York has won six straight against Washington and nine of 10. … Umenyiora finished the season with 10 forced fumbles, tying Jason Taylor’s record set in 2006 with Miami. The stat has been kept since 1994. … Redskins WR Santana Moss had nine receptions for 74 yards, setting a career high in catches (93) for the season.
