Redskins harm Giants' playoff bid

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. — If the Giants miss the playoffs, they have only themselves and the Redskins to blame.

Rex Grossman threw a touchdown and Washington dented New York's playoff hopes in a game where the Giants showed little desire with much on the line, especially coming off an emotional win over Dallas last week.

"I'm very disappointed in how we played," coach Tom Coughlin said after the Giants fell a game behind Dallas in the NFC East. "I accept responsibility for it."

Washington completed a sweep of New York as Grossman, the former Florida star, and the offense held the ball for 35 minutes.

Giants quarterback Eli Manning was intercepted three times.

"They had a lot at stake and obviously we didn't, and I'm pleased the way we played," Redskins coach Mike Shanahan said.

The Giants still control their destiny; they will win the division if they win their final two games.
