Santana Moss Goes From Hero To Goat In Seconds
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.
