Grossman leads Redskins to 28-14 win over Giants
Grossman does Shanahan proud, throws for 305 yards as Redskins top Giants 28-14 in opener
By The Associated Press

LANDOVER, Md. (AP) ' Rex Grossman completed 21 of 34 passes for 305 yards and two touchdowns Sunday as the Washington Redskins opened the season with a 28-14 win over the New York Giants.

Making his first Week 1 start since 2007, Grossman justified ' at least for a week ' coach Mike Shanahan's decision to go with the veteran over John Beck after a quarterback competition that lasted the entire preseason.

Grossman started 0 for 4, but found Anthony Armstrong for an 18-yard completion that set up a 1-yard touchdown run by Tim Hightower. Grossman later hit Armstrong for a 6-yard score, and first-round draft pick Ryan Kerrigan swung the momentum in the second half by returning an interception for a touchdown.

Eli Manning went 18 for 32 for 268 yards for the Giants.
