Clinton Portis and Ladell Betts each rushed for touchdowns as the Washington Redskins knocked off the New York Giants 22-10 at the Meadowlands. The outcome prevented
the Giants from clinching an NFC playoff berth while improving the Redskins' postseason hopes.
Shaun Suisham kicked a pair of first-half field goals into swirling gusts to put the Redskins ahead 6-0. Betts made it 13-0 with a 14-yard scoring run, and Portis added a five-yard
touchdown run that put the Redskins up 22-3. Suisham was 3-for-3 on field goals and 1-for-1 on extra points.
Neither quarterback put up big numbers as the high winds led to wobbly throws and dropped passes. Todd Collins was 8-of-25 for 166 yards and no interceptions in his first start in 10 years.
Eli Manning tossed a 19-yard scoring pass to Todd Kevin Boss but was
18-of-52 for 184 yards.
The Final was 22-10. The Giants fall to 9-and-5 overall, 3-and-4 at the Meadowlands. The Redskins are 7-and-7.
