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.
