After Andre Brown put the Giants on the board with a 23-yard touchdown run, tight end Brandon Myers hauled in a 22-yard score from Eli Manning two drives later to give Big Blue new life heading into the locker room.

“They kind of bit up on the run there,” Myers said of the touchdown, his third of the season and second in back-to-back games. “And [Eli] put a good ball on me.
“It was big. Obviously we knew we were going to get the ball there to start the second half. So to get the score and kind of get the momentum a little bit, it was huge.”
While they wouldn’t score again until the fourth quarter, the defense seized that momentum and held Washington to just three points the rest of the way.
The Giants posted 10 points in the fourth quarter as Manning finished 22 of 28 for 235 yards with a touchdown and an interception. He also had completions of 15 yards or longer to three different receivers: Myers, Victor Cruz, and Hakeem Nicks.
“We just kept pounding,” Myers said. “We knew sooner or later that we’re going to be able to make some big plays, and it showed. Guys stepped up and made a lot of plays. We ran the ball, and it opened up down the field.”
