Gano's OT FG Gives Redskins 16-13 Win Over Packers

LANDOVER, Md. - The Green Bay Packers kept piling up the yards but couldn't score. The Washington Redskins were left with a surmountable deficit, which they overcame to win yet another game that came down to the last play. LaRon Landry's diving interception set up Graham Gano's 33-yard field goal 6:54 into overtime Sunday, and the Redskins battled back from a 10-point fourth-quarter hole for a 16-13 win over the Packers. The result left both teams with 3-2 records, but rebuilding Washington feels a whole lot giddier about its mark than a Green Bay team that's supposed to have Super Bowl aspirations.

Four of Washington's five games this season weren't decided until the final snap, including two that went to overtime and two that ended on passes thrown into the end zone at the end of regulation. This one came after the Redskins were thoroughly dominated for much of the game, the defense allowing 427 yards and the offense allowing Donovan McNabb to get sacked five times. SOURCE: FOX
