EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. – The Washington Football Team lost to the New York Giants with a score of 20-19.

Washington Quarterback Kyle Allen has completed 31 of 42 passes for 280 yards in the first half. Allen had also thrown an interception and two touchdowns.

Washington Wide Receiver Terry McLaurin led the team in receiving, completing seven catches for 74 yards.

Giants Quarterback Daniel Jones completed 12 of 19 passes for 112 yards and one passing touchdown, which was a 23-yard completion to Wide Receiver Darius Slayton early in the first quarter. Jones also threw an interception.

In the last minute of the game, Washington Quarterback Kyle Allen managed to complete a 22-yard touchdown pass to Cam Sims to leave Washington down one point. After a quick decision made by Head Coach Ron Rivera, Washington failed to complete a 2-point conversion and then failed to recover the onside kick.

The onside recovery by New York led to the kneel down formation of the Giants and a Washington loss.
