Kirk Cousins throws 3 interceptions in Redskins' loss

Kirk Cousins throws 3 interceptions in Redskins' loss

Eli Manning talks to reporters after Sunday's 18-10 season-ending victory over Washington, Dec. 31, 2017.

"It's probably been my toughest year of football", Manning said after the game.

Aldrick Rosas kicked two short field goals and Kelvin Sheppard had two interceptions for NY, whose 13 losses are the most in franchise history. They definitely battled their tails off this season. "So, it's been tough, but hopefully we learn from it and grow from it". - Eli Manning on being the Giants starting QB next season. That would include any major additions as well as subtractions and indicate that new general manager Dave Gettleman will run the draft process himself, although that plan has not been finalized. He's a great leader and everything you want in a quarterback. Manning left no doubt that is his wish.

"Yeah, 100 percent", he said.

"I don't want to go play football anywhere else". "This is like my family, the New York Giants has been". "I was coming off the field and then you see the coaches yelling 'The play's not over!' Fortunately they slowed him up and I was able to make the tackle".

Gettleman and Manning spoke briefly after the game.

"This is where I want to play", he said.

"I apologize for being late", he said at the start of his delayed postgame news conference, "but it takes a long time to hug 80-someodd people". But it has been months since he had a chance to throw to Odell Beckham, Jr. and Brandon Marshall.

This season, the Redskins went 7-9 in a season filled with injuries.

What was it like playing in front of a mostly empty stadium?

With the 2017 regular season reaching its conclusion on Sunday, the 2018 opponents for most National Football League have been set. Without them, it's really just us. So it's hard to be in rhythm and on time with a lot of things. We'll have to make that decision here pretty soon.

Sharp made one of the biggest, catching a 16-yard touchdown pass in the first quarter.

Interim head coach Steve Spagnuolo backed Flowers up on that.

Cousins has completed 11-of-17 passes for 84 yards, which puts him over 4,000 passing yards for the season. Rookie Wayne Gallman added 89 yards on 15 carries.

Difficult. And cold. The temperature at kickoff was 16 degrees with 16-mph winds.

Darkwa said the feeling of winning was fantastic. "It's been overwhelming and for them to support me, support the team the way they have, it's been special".

Cousins' 13 interceptions, however, were a career-high.

Cousins' teammates will also be keeping a close eye on what unfolds. Cousins scored on a 12-run two plays later. "Stopped them on third down". "They didn't have to but those are the true Giants fans".

"I congratulated all the people involved", Spagnuolo said. "He's had the highest of highs and this was certainly very, very low, but he's a tremendous competitor and I appreciate him greatly". I tried to convey that to everybody in there, and it just feels really good. "We think he's one of the best guys in the locker room". Obviously there's a lot of changes this way, but I couldn't be more happy for the players and the coaches. Prior to that, hadn't been great, but this feels good.

On if he wants to come back next season: "The Giants organization means a lot to me".

Spagnuolo lingered on the frozen field so he could hug Manning. If you've got one, you'd like to keep one. "Because, you know, it's a memory".
