Giants stay close, eliminate 'Skins

LANDOVER, Md. — Eli Manning and Robert Griffin III put on a show in the first half. Then the two quarterbacks and their teams showed how they fell in the NFC East.

But Andre Brown had two touchdown runs and defensive end Justin Tuck had four sacks as New York kept its playoff hopes alive while eliminating Washington from postseason contention.

"After last week's loss we were probably going to have to win five in a row, and this is the first one," Manning said.

Former Gator safety Will Hill sewed it up when he wrestled the ball from Pierre Garcon after the Redskins receiver made a catch near midfield with 1:21 left. That came two plays after a confusing moment in which Washington apparently thought it had a first down — the sideline down marker was at "1" — when it was actually third and 1. Coach Mike Shanahan vented at officials over the miscue.
