Having a big, come-from-behind win against the defending Super Bowl champs on the road within your grasps and seeing it just slip away is probably one of the toughest scenarios for an NFL player.
That’s what happened today to the Washington Redskins, who made a final push to pull ahead of the New York Giants before seeing two-time Super Bowl Most Valuable Player Eli Manning take the game right back with a long touchdown pass to Victor Cruz.
Several Redskins players were tweeting after the game about the loss; some of them were raving about Redskins rookie quarterback Robert Griffin III; some were talking about the loss of tight end Fred Davis, who is out for the year with a torn Achilles; and others were talking about lessons learned:
