East Rutherford, NJ (SportsNetwork.com) - Odell Beckham Jr. caught three touchdown passes from Eli Manning as the New York Giants rallied for a 24-13 victory over the Washington Redskins, who saw another change at quarterback come to no avail. Robert Griffin III replaced an injured Colt McCoy after one possession and gave the Redskins a brief spark, putting together a pair of scoring drives that gave Washington a 13-10 edge late in the third quarter. Beckham then hauled in two touchdowns from Manning in yet another dazzling display for the rookie receiver, who finished with 12 receptions totaling 143 yards. Nine of those grabs came in the second half, enabling New York (5-9) to deal the reeling Redskins (3-11) a sixth straight loss. Nothing this guy does amazes me at this point, Giants safety Antrel Rolle said of Beckham. Hes a phenomenal talent and more importantly, I think he has the attitude and passion that this game deserves and that this team needs. He tries to go out there and be the best of the best each and every time on the field. Griffin completed 18-of-27 attempts for 236 yards and a touchdown in place of McCoy, who aggravated a previous neck strain on Washingtons opening series. The embattled quarterback also had a rushing touchdown overturned late in the first half, with a replay review determining that he fumbled prior to crossing the goal line. Weve had a lot of turmoil, lot of things going on, but at the end of the day, youve gotta get out there, suit up, and when your number is called be ready to play, Griffin said. Manning ended with 250 yards on 23-of-34 passing in the Giants second consecutive win following a seven-game losing skid. Mostly quiet with the Giants offense stagnant for the majority of the first three quarters, Beckham broke out with his team down by three late in third. He drew a pass interference call on Bashaud Breeland to put New York into enemy territory, then snared a Manning pass on a crossing route two plays later before outsprinting the defense for a 35-yard touchdown to give the Giants a 17-13 lead. Eli made a check to the tight end and gave me the post route to try and occupy the safety, said Beckham of the play. The slant came open late and it just looked like a lot of open field, so I tried to run as fast as I could. Griffin wasnt able to bring the Redskins back, as Washingtons next three drives resulted in three-and-outs while Beckham continued to rack up catches and yards. The first-round pick had five receptions totaling 56 yards on a back-breaking 12-play trek that began early in the fourth quarter. Beckham finished the sequence off with a diving 6-yard grab that put New York up 24-13 with under five minutes to go. Beckham had another touchdown catch called back by a holding penalty on the Giants previous possession, which ended when the rookie was stopped for no gain on 4th-and-1 from the Washington 28. Griffin took over with the Redskins trailing 7-3 late in the first quarter and was razor-sharp on his second drive of the day. The 2012 NFL Offensive Rookie of Year completed all five of his throws on a 7-play, 77-yard march he capped by finding a wide-open Chris Thompson in the flat for a 9-yard touchdown midway through the second quarter. After leading Washington down the field again near the end of the first half, Griffin appeared to have sent the Redskins further in front by tumbling into the end zone on an 8-yard scramble as time expired. The score was overturned, however, when replay determined that Griffin didnt reestablish possession after being temporarily dislodged of the ball by Jason Pierre-Paul just before he crossed the goal line. Its a touchdown in every game Ive ever seen, Griffin quipped afterward. The controversial ruling prompted an ejection for the Redskins Santana Moss after the veteran receiver made contact with an official as he argued the call. Moss was also given an unsportsmanlike conduct penalty, allowing the Giants to place the second-half kickoff at the Washington 35. New York took advantage of the short field, as Chandler Fenner recovered Josh Browns onside kick at the Redskins 17 to set up Browns 32-yard field goal that tied the game at 10-10. Griffin helped sent Washington back in front later in the third quarter with a third-down strike that Andre Roberts took for a 61-yard gain deep into New York territory. However, Pierre-Pauls sack of Griffin in the red zone forced the Redskins to settle for Kai Forbaths 38-yard field goal. McCoy was effective on his lone series of the day, moving the Redskins from their own 4-yard line to the Giants 17 to position Forbath for a 35-yard field goal with 6:47 left in the opening quarter. He went 4-for-7 for 39 yards on the drive while adding 24 yards on a pair of rushes. The Giants answered with a 12-play, 56-yard jaunt after getting excellent field position when Preston Parker took the ensuing kickoff 45 yards to near midfield. On 3rd-and-8 from the Washington 10, Manning lofted a pass into the end zone that Beckham came down with in tight coverage to give New York a 7-3 edge.

The low-budget club with baseballs best record has won 11 of its past 12 games at the Coliseum. Gray (9-3) reached eight or more strikeouts for the fourth time in seven impressive innings, having struck out nine twice. He is on a nice roll after losing back-to-back starts to the Orioles and Yankees on June 7 and 13.

Giants manager Bruce Bochy requested a review of a close play at first in which Sandoval was called out trying to beat out a fourth-inning grounder. The call was upheld after a replay review of 1 minute, 28 seconds. Bochy came out again in the eighth to argue after reliever Jean Machi was called for a balk. Machi was then ejected by plate umpire Angel Hernandez as the reliever walked off the field at the end of the inning. As starters have thrown six or more innings while allowing one or fewer runs in six straight games, their longest streak since at least 1914.
