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.

  1. Rays journal: Offense shows signs of waking up in win over Blue Jays (w/video)

    The Heater

    ST. PETERSBURG — The drought was so severe that it's still probably too soon to say the Rays are out of it, but scoring a half-dozen runs in Tuesday's 6-5 win over the Blue Jays was another promising sign.

    C Wilson Ramos, coming off right knee surgery, often takes it easy on the bases, though it's not always a good look. But he hustled when he needed to Tuesday and got the Rays a run by beating out a two-out infield single, finishing with three more hits.

  3. Rays are full of ideas they'd like to share when commissioner visits

    The Heater

    ST. PETERSBURG — Commissioner Rob Manfred is coming to the Trop today. Hmm. Rays principal owner Stuart Sternberg will be there to greet him. Hmmmm. And they have a scheduled joint media session. Hmmmmmmmmm.

    Commissioner Rob Manfred isn’t expected to say anything definitive about the Rays’ stadium situation when he visits the team today.

  5. 'Hard Knocks' star Riley Bullough still not a lock for Bucs

    Bucs

    TAMPA — Bucs undrafted rookie LB Riley Bullough is perhaps the surprise star of HBO's Hard Knocks and has been productive in two preseason games, but Bucs coach Dirk Koetter said Tuesday that he's caught in a numbers game competing for a backup spot on the Tampa Bay roster.

    Riley Bullough has made a good impression on Hard Knocks and on coach Dirk Koetter, but he isn’t guaranteed a job.
