EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. — If this was Mike Shanahan's final game as the Redskins' coach, it was just as disappointing as the season.
Jerrel Jernigan caught a 24-yard touchdown and ran 49 yards for another to lead the Giants past Washington, handing the Redskins their eighth straight loss.
Shanahan, 61, refused to address his future after the game. He plans to meet today with team owner Daniel Snyder.
Receiver Santana Moss said the Redskins never overcame their 1-4 start.
"We caught a wave we couldn't get off of," he said. "Once we did, the wave just drowned us."
The Giants also are going to miss the playoffs, and coach Tom Coughlin refused to address his future.
