It’s time to take a look at your psychic skills for Monday’s Redskins-Giants game, as well as which player was picked by Redskins fans at the Most Valuable Player of the game.
The Redskins, of course, won 17-16 in the critical NFC East matchup that was nationally-televised on Monday Night football. Several Redskins players had great performances, but let’s first look at who you predicted would have a breakout performance against New York:
As you can see, Redskins fans predicted that quarterback Robert Griffin III would churn out another great performance, as he earned 55 percent of the vote. Griffin III, as it turns out, had a terrific performance in Monday’s game, completing 13-of-21 passes for 163 yards and a touchdown, and adding another 73 yards rushing.
Let’s see how the other candidates played Thursday:
– RB Alfred Morris: 22 rushes for a career-high 124 yards. His six-yard run on 3rd and 3 with just more than a minute left in the game sealed the victory for the Redskins.
– WR Pierre Garçon: eight catches for 106 yards and a touchdown. His eight-yard touchdown reception in the fourth quarter proved to be the game-winning score.
– CB DeAngelo Hall: four tackles. He reportedly injured his ankle early in the game, but played through the pain.
– OLB Ryan Kerrigan: four tackles. His rush on Giants quarterback Eli Manning drove him right into the hands of a waiting Rob Jackson, who got a critical third-down sack in the fourth quarter.
– DE Stephen Bowen: four tackles.
Now, here’s how the MVR(edskin) vote ended up panning out (not surprisingly, it wasn’t close):
– Griffin III: (See stats above)
– Garçon: (See stats above)
– LB London Fletcher: A game-best 12 tackles. He had a couple very hard hits the set the tone early.
– Morris: (See stats above)
Thanks again for your participation in the polls — and, of course, you’ll have the same opportunity when the Redskins take on the Baltimore Ravens Sunday at FedExField.
