Defensive end Phillip Daniels played Sunday in a game that counted for the first time in more than 20 months.

It was another loss to the Giants, but it was still a milestone for the veteran defensive end.  Since Daniels last played a game that counted, he celebrated his 35th and 36th birthdays and was cut and re-signed by the Redskins.


But there he was in the starting lineup on Sunday for the first time (not counting this preseason) since the playoff loss in Seattle on Jan. 5, 2008.

“It was great to be out there for a regular season game,” said Daniels, who had just two tackles. “It seems like they never run my way very much, but I did fine. I had fun.”
