N.Y. Giants (7-4) at Washington Redskins (5-6) Time: 5:30 p.m. TV: ESPN Story line: This is a rematch of one of the season's best games, the Giants' 27-23 home victory Oct. 21 when Eli Manning completed a 77-yard touchdown pass to Victor Cruz with 1:13 remaining, seconds after Redskins rookie Robert Griffin III threw a 30-yard TD pass to Santana Moss. The Redskins rushed for 248 yards that day, and now seek to tighten the NFC East race. Griffin threw eight touchdown passes in a five-day span against Philadelphia and Dallas.

In the first quarter, Washington Redskins receiver Santana Moss made a spin move that left Jacksonville Jaguars safety Deon Grant sprawled on the grass at the 11-yard line. In the fourth quarter, Moss caught a pass and darted inside just in time to make cornerback Brian Williams whiff near the goal line. Then in overtime, Moss dusted Grant and Williams at the same time, leaving them flat-footed on a catch and run that went 68 yards down the left sideline for a score.

Curtis Martin hopes Chad Pennington's performance Sunday changes the way opposing teams look at the New York Jets. Pennington, in the second start of his three-season NFL career, completed 24 of 29 passes for 324 yards to lead the Jets past the Minnesota Vikings, 20-7. "Some of my friends would say to me, 'Curtis, we're coming in there to shut you down,' " Martin said. "That's not the case anymore. Now when teams look at us, they know they can't put the eight-man front in there."

The trouble with track and field in this country can be seen every time Santana Moss leaps for a pass, settles under a punt or outsprints another opposing defense from one end of the field to the other. That should have been Moss spraying sand at the Sydney Olympics three months ago, long jumping for the red, white and blue, reminding the world that America still had a future in the event, instead of as it stands now: A glorious past that shut down operations the minute Carl Lewis retired.

DETROIT -- Santana Moss dashed Detroit's hopes of finally winning a game. Moss had a go-ahead touchdown reception in the third quarter and returned a punt for another score in the fourth, lifting the Washington Redskins to a 25-17 victory over the Lions (0-7). Jason Campbell threw for 328 yards and a touchdown, connecting with Moss nine times for 140 yards for the Redskins (6-2). Clinton Portis joined O.J. Simpson in the NFL record book with his fifth straight game of at least 120 yards rushing.

Doesn't take a genius to figure out the Washington Redskins are in trouble. The Redskins lost for the fifth time in six games, unable to keep up with one of the NFL's lowliest teams. Ryan Fitzpatrick ran for a touchdown and threw for another, leading Cincinnati to a 20-13 win that ended Washington's week of grousing -- and, pretty much, its playoff chances. The main intrigue was how the Redskins (7-7) would react to injuries to their offensive line and grumbling by running back Clinton Portis.
