Redskins Highlights: Just The Touchdowns

Posted Dec 4, 2012

The Redskins offense scored a pair of touchdowns against the Giants on Monday Night Football. Here are the video highlights!

After scoring a combined 69 points in consecutive victories over the Eagles and Cowboys, the Redskins' offense needed just 17 points to secure victory over the New York Giants on Monday Night Football.

Quarterback Robert Griffin III threw his third-fewest pass attempts as a pro, but completed 13-of-21 for 163 yards and a touchdown.

He also averaged nearly 15 yards per carry on the ground, which set up an improbable touchdown to put the Redskins on the board in the first quarter.

Trailing 3-0, the Redskins committed to the running game, sending Alfred Morris up the middle for consecutive first downs.  With 1st-and-10 from the Giants' 29-yard line, Griffin III faked the handoff and called the keeper, rolling around the left side of the line.

Following blocks by fullback Darrel Young, Griffin III got the ball down to the 13-yard line, where he was drilled by a Giants defender and lost control of the football.  The ball popped into the air, and into the hands of receiver Joshua Morgan, who had sealed off the cornerback to allow Griffin III to turn upfield.

Following a final block by tight end Logan Paulsen, Morgan scampered the final 12 yards for the NFL's 'Can't Miss Play of the Week':

The Redskins added a 33-yard field goal off the leg of Kai Forbath before halftime, but trailed 10-16 as the third quarter drew to a close.

The Redskins' offense took over at the 14-yard line, where Griffin III led his team on a 12-play, 86-yard drive that milked 6:33 off the clock for the game's go-ahead score.

Once again running the play off a play action fake to Morris, Griffin III rolled to his right and found No. 88 open across the middle.

Pierre Garcon was the game's leading receiver (8 receptions, 106 yards), and had four receptions of at least 17 yards.  However, his biggest catch came on the goal line, where he caught the game-winning score:
