It was two strong arms that staged the shootout at RFK Stadium, but it was Raul Allegre's foot that won it. Allegre's 52-yard field goal as time ran out gave the New York Giants a 27-24 victory over the Washington Redskins Monday night, upstaging quarterbacks Phil Simms and Mark Rypien. Allegre also had hit a 32-yarder 2:17 earlier to tie it after New York had squandered a 21-10 fourth-quarter lead by surrendering two touchdowns in 54 seconds to give the Redskins a 24-21 lead.

So, get your highlight films ready: As far as Rams losses go in this lost season, this one was a keeper.

Tagliabue, in a brief session with the media, defended his $500,0000 fine of 49er owner Eddie DeBartolo for transferring ownership of the team to Edward DeBartolo's corporation without league approval three years ago.
