The Giants turned the heat up after falling behind the Redskins. They sacked Robert Griffin III five times in the second half of their 24-17 victory.
Defensive end Justin Tuck registered four sacks, matching his total for all of last season. Tuck, who did a lot of his damage lining up inside, hit Griffin six times. Defensive tackle Cullen Jenkins had the other sack. Safety Will Hill made the play of the game when he ripped the ball away from receiver Pierre Garcon on Washington's final drive.
The Giants DST held Washington to 5 of 16 on third down and limited Alfred Morris to 26 yards on 11 carries. New York visits San Diego in Week 14.
