Griffin guides Washington to win

Washington quarterback Robert Griffin used skill and a little luck to guide the Redskins to a 17-16 win over the New York Giants.

The rookie passed for 163 yards including a touchdown, but also had some good fortune when his fumble went straight to a team-mate, Joshua Morgan, who completed a touchdown.

The win improves Washington's record to 6-6, one game back on the NFC East-leading Giants.
