EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) — The New York Giants actually held onto a second-half lead, dominating the Washington Redskins and clinching a 32-21 victory over Washington on Thursday night on Odell Beckham Jr.’s 30-yard touchdown catch.
New York fell apart in the fourth quarter of losses to Dallas and Atlanta. This time, the Giants (1-2) stayed in front late in the game against the injury-plagued Redskins (1-2), who lost veteran cornerback DeAngelo Hall to a right leg injury that looked serious.
The Giants scored in nearly every way possible, beginning with Rashad Jennings blocking Tress Way’s punt for a safety on Washington’s opening series. Andre Williams scored on a 1-yard run, Josh Brown kicked three field goals, and Beckham toasted Bashaud Breeland to settle matters.
Prince Amukamara and Uani Unga had interceptions of Kirk Cousins, who struggled once more against New York.
