D.J. Swearinger on safety Deshazor Everett, who played one of his more consistent games: "He played a hell of a game. Coverage was great; tackling was great. He definitely improved. My thing with him is stay consistent. Next week do the same thing or do better."
D.J. Swearinger said of Kendall Fuller's interception to clinch the win: "He was telling me right before the drive, he said he don't like being tired. I said, well make it happen. He made it happen the very next drive."
Redskins tackle Morgan Moses said he's glad they stuck with the run. "At the time we were beating our defense up ourselves because we were getting off the field so quick," he said. "The defense was playing a hell of a game. We had to control some of the clock to give our defense a rest."
Redskins coach Jay Gruden said the botched fourth-down play stemmed from a player who was supposed to be on the field, but had remained on the sidelines. Apparently the player had an issue with his foot and had his shoe off, which the coaches had not been told about. So they had to take the delay and punt.

Janoris Jenkins' left foot was in a walking boot. He said it was bothering him on the touchdown catch he allowed in corner of end zone.
Ben McAdoo on his offense: "Wasn't very good." He also noted their margin for error is slim with this lineup.

The Giants had 170 yards of total offense in a 20-10 loss to the Redskins. It was their fewest yards since 150 yards in a Week 3 loss in 2013 to Carolina, per ESPN Stats and Info.
The Redskins needed a game like that, where they could grab a late lead and actually finish a win. Give them credit for bouncing back in a short week after a crushing loss. Receiver Jamison Crowder was a standout as was running back Samaje Perine. And the defense held New York to six first downs for the game. It wasn't pretty. It took a while to pull away. But for a team that has gone through what it has with injuries, it should feel good.
Janoris Jenkins with his second INT in as many weeks and second TD of the season. He has 7 career TDs now.
Evan Engram came into Thursday with three drops, according to ESPN Stats and Info. He has dropped two easy ones and failed to corral a third tonight. Having a rough game.
A quarterback that can move changes everything working with a sub-par offensive line. Kirk Cousins creates the game's first TD by creating time with his legs.
The Redskins have liked how Kirk cousins uses his feet more. He's become better at extending plays in the red zone, something they've wanted to see. Often, he ends up running but he connected with Jamison Crowder for a touchdown on a third-down scramble. Crowder worked to the open spot.
Before the holding penalty on the Redskins' first drive of the second half, they had success running the ball to the right side -- where their only two opening day starters remain. Look for more of that; with this line they must stay in a good down and distance in order to avoid heavy pressure.
Dak Prescott has thrown five interceptions in two games and seen two turnovers returned for touchdowns in the last two games, but owner and general manager Jerry Jones has the quarterback’s back. “He’s our future,” Jones said. “And I feel strongly about it. What I mean is I saw nothing today, last week or the other week before that that’s compromised my thoughts about his future.”
The Redskins' run game needs to be a lot better in the second half. Samaje Perine has rushed five times for three yards. Part of the problem, no doubt, is the offensive line. But coach Jay Gruden felt earlier this week they could still have success. So far, though, that's been far from the case.
The Redskins are playing like a team on a short week with a depleted lineup. Their line can't generate any push in the ground game, which isn't surprising given three new starters. It's also been hard to protect quarterback Kirk Cousins. Defensively, they've done a solid job vs. a bad offense. There have been times the Redskins have several players on the field who were cut in training camp.
The Giants had 19 runs and 16 called passes in the first half. Trying to grind it out and ride the defense. They're tied at 3-3 at halftime.
Redskins quarterback Kirk Cousins has done a much better job the last two games of giving receiver Josh Doctson a chance to make plays. There have been times those passes have nearly been intercepted, but it's also resulted in multiple big plays. Cousins has shown a more aggressive mindset, something coaches have wanted to see on a consistent basis.
That was a monstrous 16-play, 60-yard drive that took 8:29. Giants settle for 3 after missed third-down throw.
Orleans Darkwa topped 500 yards rushing with that 2-yard run early in the second quarter. He will collect a $200K bonus for that.
Chargers head coach Anthony Lynn had this to say when asked about punter Drew Kaser missing the net on his practice kicks: "We were at the 25 and I was told he was good from the 25. And then someone told me he was practicing his kicks and he missed the whole damn net, so I decided to go for it."
End of first quarter and no points on the board. There are 108 total yards and 4 first downs between the two teams.
The Redskins' offense has done a good job in the screen game this season, but without running back Chris Thompson and left tackle Trent Williams it's hard to be as effective. However, right guard Brandon Scherff also excels in the open field so it allows them to at least run some screens.
