Here is a statement from Dean Blandino, NFL VP of Officiating, on the fourth quarter play in Sunday night's Redskins vs. Giants game that saw confusion as to what Washington's down was on their final drive.
Penalties aren't the biggest reason the Redskins lost Sunday night. But they certainly didn't help matters.
The refs in the Redskins' loss to the Giants made a mistake that was correctable in the moment. Why did they let it slip?
Robert Griffin III has been sacked more in the last four games than he was in the first eight of the season.
Need to Know: The Redskins' offense has gone silent in the second half in each of their last two games.
