Manning's touchdown pass to Manningham was all Manningham. The second-year receiver took the quick out, deked Fred Smoot at the line of scrimmage, avoided a pushout attempt near the sideline by Andre Carter at the 20 and stopped short to avoid a tackle by DeAngelo Hall for his first NFL score.
Umenyiora made his first real game since the Super Bowl in February 2008 memorable. He beat Washington tackle Chris Samuels, slapped the ball out of Campbell's hand and then picked up the rolling ball and pranced to the end zone, where Justin Tuck bowed in homage.
Washington, which ran itself out of a scoring opportunity on its opening series with an ill-advised gadget play, used one to get on the board with 21 seconds left in the half. Faced with a fourth-and-goal at the Giants 8, coach Jim Zorn went with a fake and it caught New York by surprise, allowing Smith to jog in for a touchdown.
Suisham's short field goal was set up Hall's interception of Manning deep in New York territory.
