Victor Cruz spoiled Robert Griffin III's late-game heroics with an 80-yard touchdown that would be the decisive score in the Giants' 27-23 win on Sunday.
Washington Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III made an impressive comeback against the New York Giants, but Eli Manning and Victor Cruz made sure it was all for naught as the two connected for an 80-yard, game-winning score.
Cruz got behind the defense, despite the fact that plenty of Redskins defensive backs were in the area. Once he caught the pass, no Redskin was able to chase him down as he went all the way to the end zone.
The catch gave Cruz a final stat line of seven catches for 131 yards and the touchdown. Manning, meanwhile, finished with 337 yards, a touchdown and two interceptions, furthering his reputation as a clutch quarterback.
The Redskins got another chance to mount a comeback, but a Santana Moss fumble sealed the dramatic, 27-23 win for the Giants.
