“I’m pretty mad at the football gods for putting him in the NFC East,” Giants defensive end Justin Tuck said. “To face that guy twice a year is going to be a headache. He takes away from your enthusiasm for the game a little bit.”
The Redskins had new life. Three plays later, Griffin lobbed a touchdown to Moss to put Washington ahead, 23-20. Moss ran past rookie cornerback Jayron Hosley down the seam. “Perfect throw,” Moss said. “Perfect touch. Put it in the air where I could run to it.”
He grinned, aware of the irony in him exploiting a rookie.
“I’m a rookie myself,” he said, “but you have to take advantage of that.”
It was an epic comeback. And it was gone in 19 seconds.
He finished speaking to reporters, slipped a backpack over his shoulders and pulled a suitcase behind him. He walked out of MetLife Stadium a little smarter and no less determined.
