Playoff Hopes Still Alive: Skins Beat Giants

Hail to the Redskins! They triumphed over their divisional rival, the New York Giants, 22-10 despite a frigid, swirling wind that wreaked havoc on the passing and kicking game of both teams. They won due to tough defense, a strong running game, and a solid gameplan.

Clinton Portis ran for over 120 yards and a touchdown. Todd Collins, filling in for the injured Jason Campbell, made his first start in a decade and threw for 166 yards, including 75 yards to Santana Moss, who he hit twice on deep passes. The offensive line looked solid, the defense played a good "bend-but-don't-break" style.

Next week, the Redskins (7-7) will be playing at Minnesota (7-6, plays Chicago tonight on MNF) in the game that could decide who gets the final playoff spot in the NFC.

The Giants (9-5) will take on the Chicago Bears next week.
