--QB Patrick Ramsey appeared unbothered by the sprained left (non-throwing) shoulder he injured in the win at Atlanta. He posted his second straight 300-yard passing day, though this one was pretty ugly until Washington's late rally.
--WR Darnerien McCants enjoyed a semi-breakout game (four
catches, 67 yards, one touchdown, plus a two-point conversion). McCants was the
No. 3 receiver by late last year, but the Redskins overhauled the receiver
position during the offseason. Rookie Taylor Jacobs was expected to be No. 3,
but he has been sidelined with a bruised pancreas and now McCants has made a
good argument to stay put.
--LB LaVar Arrington was very sharp
in an otherwise erratic day for Washington's defense. He had a sack/fumble on
Giants QB Kerry Collins and forced a fumble on RB Tiki Barber.
--CB Champ Bailey endured a rough afternoon. He gave up a 54-yard touchdown to
WR Amani Toomer (Bailey slipped a bit; Toomer showed terrific speed) and was in
position in prevent WR Ike Hilliard from scoring on a 5-yard
--K John Hall booted a 42-yard field goal in the first
quarter and a 33-yarder to send the game into overtime. But in between, he
missed a 53-yarder and 49-yarder.
