NFL: New York Giants at Washington Redskins Geoff Burke-USA TODAY Sports

If you were expecting high-quality, thrilling football in the game between the New York Giants and Washington Redskins, you were probably disappointed by the first half.

It should hardly be surprising given some of the players the Giants were starting, and that Washington didn’t even have enough healthy players to run 11-on-11 drills in practice.

The first quarter of the game saw the two offenses trading three-and-outs, with the Giants picking up the game’s first first down just before the 10-minute mark in the first quarter. They didn’t convert their first third down until their epic 16-play, 8:29 drive in the second quarter.

It was probably their best drive of the season, but still ended in a field goal when Eli Manning threw a fraction of a second early, over-throwing Shane Vereen on what could have been a touchdown.

Washington eventually answered two drives later with a field goal of their own.

The Giants’ linebacking corps took another hit when Curtis Grant left the field on the cart and was declared out with a knee injury.

Washington won the coin toss and elected to defer. They will get the ball to start the second half.
