>> al: we'll say it. it's calvin engram right? >> cris: he said say his name. i still have the plate and screws many my ankle. >> al: consider it done. pass over the middle. second down. i looked up a list of the arena players, the best of all time. gruden was fourth. i read it off to him and he said no, no, no, i was third. either way, manning throwing. and caught in redskins territory and king taking the ball to the washington 39 yard line. hustling up to the line to save that time-out. 1:16 but the giants elect to take it right here. >> cris: that was a big tackle by d.j. swearinger on the tackle. it might be one of those catch
11:31 pm
and runs and tough to make that tackle. that is what safeties have to do in the middle of the field. that is such a tough play against wide receivers and running backs that break it up the middle but the good ones can get them on the ground. almost broke that one. >> al: 1:16. at the washington 39 yard line. passed manning in over 100 yards, throwing for 113 tonight. eli hit as he throws and that will be picked off at the 14 yard line. and that will write a finish to it and kendall fuller having a really good year will just about end it. junior galette put the pressure on manning. hit him as he threw. mcadoo could only look on as his team is on the cusp of going to 2-9 and the redskins can run the clock out. >>
11:32 pm
it off is because ereck flowers was holding galette coming off the edge. that was the good news. the bad news was that maybe one of the best slot corner backs in all of football made that play. we haven't talked about him tonight. but not only is he tremendous in coverage averaging a 58 quarterback rating when you throw it kendall fuller but you see him making all kinds of physical plays in the run game. i really like him and it's just that he came up with that big game-winner. >> al: the four fuller brothers, two are still playing in the league, one retired a few years ago. all went to virginia tech. so a couple of kneel-downs and that will take us to our post game. let's go to michele. >> michele: kendall fuller is a guy that is an unsung hero on this defense.
11:33 pm
one of the strongest guys on the back end. playing on another level. he's a ball hog. just proved that. he said i give them encouragement and want to give him a plug. >> al: rand he deserves it. norman has no interceptions this season. of course, they avoid him a lot. fuller now has four. one kneel-down will take washington to a record of five wins and six losses. their next game is next thursday night here on nbc as they meet dallas. the giants next week, a week from sunday will go to oakland. >> cris: pretty impressive to bounce back after the loss at new orleans that had to take the heart out of anybody. it was a 15-point lead, 3:00 to go and come back in a short week and get it done. >> al: get it done. injuries all over the place. the feast is ahead next. volkswen
