Griffith Stadium - It had already snowed six inches by game time and it didn’t stop then. The Redskins didn’t complete a pass and the Giants rushed for a net of minus one yard. The game came down to crucial mistakes and, as been the case all year long, it was Washington making the key miscues.
Ed Khayat kicked a short field goal to cap Washington’s opening drive and for a long time, it appeared that the three points would hold up. Late in the third quarter, the Giants lined up to punt somewhere near midfield—by that time, the snow had made it impossible to tell exactly where. Inexplicably, Gary Glick tried to field the ball inside the five and never got the handle. The Giants recovered and two plays later, Charley Conerly passed nine yards to Joe Morrison for the go-ahead touchdown. That would be all the points the Giants would need as the Redskins never threatened after that.
