Manning, Giants keep playoff hopes alive

(Continued)

“Our secondary did a great job of giving RG some different reads and make him hold the ball a little longer than what he had been doing previously,” Tuck said, “and I was able to capitalize on it.”

The Redskins also scored a touchdown on their opening possession for the first time this season, using the no-huddle offense to go 73 yards. Tight end Fred Davis made his first catch since Week 2 along the way, and the drive ended with Alfred Morris’ 1-yard run.

A 19-yard pass to Logan Paulsen gave the Redskins a 14-0 lead early in the second quarter, but the Giants started their comeback with something unusual for this season — a pair of long runs.

The Giants had only one running play of 20-plus yards in 2013 entering the game, but they had two on the same drive, including a 23-yard touchdown run by Brown that made the score 14-7. Manning’s pass to Myers tied the game just before the half.
