EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. -- The New York Giants trail the Washington Redskins, 10-7, at halftime of Sunday's game at MetLife Stadium. The action thus far passes for any description you want to use that equates to the opposite of "riveting." Which is what you might expect when a 4-9 team with one win in eight tries hosts a 3-10 team with five straight losses.

The Giants only score of the half came on a 10-yard pass to Odell Beckham. The Redskins got a 35-yard Kai Forbath field goal and a 9-yard pass from Robert Griffin III to running back Chris Thompson.

Robert Griffin III entered the game on Washington's second offensive series after Colt McCoy went to the locker room with a neck injury. McCoy had been questionable entering the game with that injured neck.

Griffin had an excellent half, going 9-of-15 for 140 yards with a touchdown pass.

The Giants got a HUGE break on the final play of the first half when Griffin appeared to have run for a score that would have given Washington a 10-point lead. Review found that Griffin had lost possession of the ball, which became a touchback, costing Washington seven points. Santana Moss of the Redskins was then ejected for arguing that call.

Kevin Ogletree started at wide receiver in place of Rueben Randle and caught one pass for 15 yards before exiting with a head injury. Corey Washington played before Randle, who, for the second time in recent weeks, did not enter the game until the second quarter. Randle dropped two passes after entering the game and replaced again by Ogletree.

Eli Manning completed 9-of-16 passes for 79 yards and a touchdown in the first half.

Use this as your second half open thread.
