Giants Topple Washington, 45-14
LANDOVER, Md. (AP) — Larry Donnell caught three of Eli Manning's four touchdown passes, and the New York Giants moved to .500 with a 45-14 victory over the Washington Redskins on Thursday night.
Second-year tight end Donnell had one career touchdown entering the game. He finished with seven catches for 54 yards. Manning was 28 for 39 for 300 yards and had a 1-yard scoring run.
Manning struggled in his first two games running new offensive coordinator Ben McAdoo's West Coast playbook, but he has now led to back-to-back victories to get the Giants to 2-2.
The Redskins fell to 1-3 under new coach Jay Gruden, in the cellar in the NFC East. Kirk Cousins was responsible for five of Washington's six turnovers — four interceptions and lost fumble.
The Giants scored 31 points off turnovers.
