    Ouch. The 3-9 Redskins were mathematically eliminated from the postseason Sunday night at the hands of the New York Giants, who beat the 'Skins 24-17.

    Eli Manning completed 22 of 28 passes for 235 yards, and Justin Tuck had four sacks to help shut down Robert Griffin III in the second half Sunday night.

    Andre Brown had a pair of touchdown runs, including a 1-yarder early in the fourth quarter that put the Giants ahead for good.

    Griffin was 16 for 17 at halftime, but he went 8 for 15 in the second half, and the Redskins managed only 95 total yards after halftime.

    The win keeps the Giants (5-7) two games behind NFC East leaders Dallas and Philadelphia with four to play. Meanwhile, this was the 17th time the Redskins were eliminated from the postseason in 21 years.
