Redskins receiver Santana Moss was too much for the Giants, then for Washington, this afternoon as New York downed the visiting 'Skins 27-23.
Let me explain. Santana Moss actually had a pretty good game for Washington, going for three catches, 67 yards, and two touchdowns, including this go-ahead score with 1:38 left in the game to put Washington up 23-20.
Unfortunately for Washington, the Giants would score immediately after on a 77-yard bomb from Eli Manning to Victor Cruz with 1:23 to go.
Suddenly down 27-23, RGIII and the Redskins took over with just over a minute and 80 yards to go. Sadly, their potential game-winning drive would be cut short three plays in after a fumble by Moss on a routine catch-and-run up the middle of the field. The Giants recovered the fumble. Game over.
It just goes to show you; for all the heroics Moss garnered by hauling in the go-ahead touchdown from RGIII, he is now the goat for fumbling away a potential last-second drive. And while the stat sheet says maybe Washington could have won if their defense wasn't so bad, in the end, it really comes down to Moss' butterfingers.
