Gaffes Are Especially Costly for Redskins
The Washington Redskins' disappointing trip through an encyclopedia of special teams mishaps began early in yesterday's 23-7 loss to the New York Giants. Washington's first possession ended with punter Ryan Plackemeier dropping the ball too far to the outside of his right foot and mis-hitting a poor 31-yard kick. The Giants' first possession ended with a mishandled extra-point snap, but the Washington rush was slow to develop, so holder Jeff Feagles steadied the ball, place kicker John Carney re-set his stance, and the conversion was ugly but true.
