Giants Beat Washington, 20-6, to End Season
Jerrel Jerigan caught a 24-yard touchdown pass and ran 49 yards for another to lead the Giants to a 20-6 victory over Washington on Sunday in what might be Mike Shanahan’s final game as the Redskins’ coach.
Shanahan has not only seen the Redskins (3-13) finish the season with an eight-game losing streak just a year after winning the NFC East, but his future is uncertain because of his shaky relationship with oft-injured franchise quarterback Robert Griffin III.
The Giants (7-9) also aren’t going to the playoffs, but they closed the season with a 7-3 record after losing their first six games. It’s a finish that probably will have two-time Super Bowl winning coach Tom Coughlin back next season, unless the 67-year-old decides he has had enough.
The game was the final one at MetLife Stadium until the Super Bowl on Feb. 2.
