EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) — Rex Grossman threw a touchdown pass and the Washington Redskins put a hurt on the New York Giants and their playoff hopes with a 23-10 victory on Sunday.

Grossman threw a 20-yard scoring pass to Santana Moss, Darrel Young scored on a 6-yard run after one of the Redskins' three interceptions of Eli Manning and Graham Gano picked three field goals as Washington (5-9) won for only the second time in 10 games.

The loss knocked the Giants (7-7) out of first place in the NFC East.

Dallas (8-6) now leads the division by a game with two to go, including one with Giants on the final weekend. If New York beats the Jets and the Cowboys in its final two games it will win the division.
