Giants 17, Redskins 14

Giants do part but still miss playoffs

LANDOVER, Md. — With heads hung low and some players speaking in barely a whisper, the Giants walked quietly into the locker room at FedEx Field after beating the Redskins. They looked nothing like a team that had just earned its 10th victory of the season.

"This is the most somber winning locker room you'll ever see," defensive tackle Barry Cofield said. "We fell short of our goals."

The Giants did all they could to save their season but Green Bay's victory against Chicago clinched the final NFC playoff spot for the Packers, leaving the Giants out for the second year in a row.

Redskins fans chanted "Green Bay won!" with just more than two minutes left in the game. Some Giants said they heard it, others said they did not.

The Redskins' Rex Grossman had the longest completion of his career, a 64-yard touchdown to Anthony Armstrong.

    The Heater

    ST. PETERSBURG — On June 10, 2009, the Brewers selected a Sarasota High School shortstop in the 16th round of the MLB draft. He'd assembled an impressive resume in prep ball, but as one of more than 1,500 players drafted that year, he had a tough road to the big leagues.

    Cincinnati Reds second baseman Scooter Gennett (4) of Sarasota makes the throw to first as Rays DH Trevor Plouffe (14) grounds into a double play at Tropicana Field in St. Petersburg Monday, June 19, 2017. For Gennett, the three-game series this week with the Rays was his first trip back to Tampa Bay since his historic four-home run game June 6, 2017 against St. Louis. DIRK SHADD   |   Times
