Eli Manning, Odell Beckham lead Giants to win over Redskins

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. -- Eli Manning threw three touchdown passes to rookie Odell Beckham Jr. and the New York Giants took advantage of an overturned touchdown at the end of the first half to defeat Washington 24-13 Sunday.

Manning and Beckham combined 12 times for 143 yards, with touchdown passes covering 10, 35 and 6 yards. The win was the second straight for the Giants (5-9) after seven straight losses.

The 35-yarder gave the Giants a 17-13 lead late in third quarter. The 6-yarder with 4:41 to go sent the Redskins (3-11) to their sixth consecutive loss in a game they seemed to control as the half ended.

Robert Griffin III scrambled for an apparent 8-yard touchdown as the half expired for a 17-7 lead. The video review showed that Griffin lost control of the ball diving into the end zone and the play was ruled a touchback.
