At the end of overtime, both teams punted twice before Graham Gano missed a 58-yard field goal on the final play of the game.

After three straight losses, the Giants fall to 7-4-1. They host the 11-1 Philadelphia Eagles next week. Washington is 7-5-1 after winning three of its last four games on the road.

Daboll said, "We'll have to figure it out. There's a long way to go. It's better than losing; not as good as winning."

There was an air of uncertainty among the players about what exactly a tie would mean for them, but all seemed regretful that they were not able to celebrate a win.

As for the result, Jones was pretty disappointed with it. "Certainly not the one we were hoping for. ... It's neither a win nor a loss, but it's certainly not what we had in mind."

Actually, the tie got us into the playoffs, so it wasn't ideal." Gano commented.
