Well, that was not a good start to the 2011 season for the New York Giants. A 28-14 loss to the Washington Redskins, a team the Giants had beaten six straight times and were favored to beat heading into Sunday's game at FedEx Field.
Not a whole lot to feel good about for Giants fans. Uneven offense, a secondary that allowed the mediocre Rex Grossman to look like a Pro Bowler, throwing for 305 yards and two touchdowns.
The game was tied, 14-14, at the half, but the Giants could not do anything offensively in the second half.
Ryan Kerrigan picked off an Eli Manning pass and returned it nine yards for a touchdown to give Washington a 21-14 lead. Can't kill Manning for that pick. He had to make the throw, Kareem McKenzie missed the block and Kerrigan made a terrific play.
Washington's final touchdown came after a foolish personal foul penalty on Antrel Rolle kept a Redskins drive alive, turning an opportunity for the Giants to tie into a game they could not win.
Lots more coming tonight and Monday, but that's all for now.
