Giants quarterback Eli Manning threw for 113 yards, was intercepted once and was sacked four times, while New York's defense allowed a late go-ahead touchdown to Kirk Cousins in a 20-10 loss to the Washington Redskins on Thursday at FedEx Field.
Manning completed 13 of 27 passes, the last of which was intercepted by Kendall Fuller, as the Giants lost for the fourth time in the last five games. The veteran quarterback, who entered the final drive with just 77 passing yards, has thrown for at least 100 yards in each week since Oct. 28, 2007.
The Giants gave up a tie-breaking 14-yard touchdown from Cousins to Josh Doctson in the left side of the end zone that gave Washington a 17-10 lead with 3:31 left. On the ensuing drive, the Giants went three-and-out, ending with a sack on fourth-and-3 from their own 32.
New York scored its only touchdown a Janoris Jenkins pick-6 late in the third quarter, while their offense punted on five of its first six possessions.
Wayne Gallman and Orleans Darkwa combined for 67 rushing yards on 20 carries, while Tavarres King recorded a team-high 36 receiving yards. Evan Engram had three catches for 18 yards.
Cousins threw for 242 yards, two touchdowns and one interception. Samaje Perine totaled 100 rushing yards. Jamison Crowder had seven catches for 141 yards and a touchdown for the Redskins, who outgained New York 324-170.
New York and Washington entered halftime tied at 3, but Cousins led a six-play, 50-yard drive that ended with a 15-yard touchdown pass to Crowder in the back of the end zone that gave Washington a 10-3 lead. On Washington's next possession, Jenkins intercepted a tipped ball and ran it back 52 yards for the touchdown to tie the game.
Washington's Nick Rose kicked a 30-yard field goal with 1:49 remaining to make it a two-possession game.
