That's when top defensive tackle Cornelius Griffin re-injured his hip. He lasted one more snap. Fellow defensive tackle Joe Salave'a gave into the continuing pain in his right foot in the second half.
"I felt it as soon as I started to try to chase Tiki," said Griffin, who was originally hurt in the Oct. 23 victory over San Francisco and missed the first two days of practice last week. "I knew I wasn't 100 percent, but I had to try to play. It hurts more because I think I could've made a difference and all I could do was stand and watch. We can't be any thinner (at defensive tackle). I've got to keep rehabbing and hopefully get to feeling better."
Defensive end Phillip Daniels went out with an injured ankle in the fourth quarter. His status is unclear.
Offensive left tackle Chris Samuels went out with a sprained right knee in the third quarter.
"My knee kind of just gave out on me," Samuels said. "It had kind of been bothering me a little bit anyway. I don't know what's wrong with it right now. There's no ligament damage, but we'll see what the MRI says tomorrow."
"It loosened up after a while," Cooley said. "I'm sure it will be sore, but I'll be fine."
In what was their biggest game in years, the Redskins laid the biggest egg of Hall of Famer Joe Gibbs' 14 seasons as their coach, getting crushed 36-0 by the host Giants.
How about this litany of mistakes? Eight dropped passes. Four turnovers. Five sacks. Ten penalties. Two hundred sixty eight rushing yards surrendered while managing just 2.9 yards per carry themselves.
The Giants had seven possessions inside the Washington 35-yard-line in which they didn't reach the end zone and settled for five field goals. If those five field goals, interception and missed field goal had been touchdowns, it would've been the most lopsided game in NFL history.
