The Game Winner Came On a Jerry Goldsteyn 22 Yard TD Pass To Jim Robinson Late In The Fourth Quarter. Other Than The TD Pass Goldsteyn Did Not Have a Good Game Otherwise. He Threw 3 Interceptions & Was Sacked Twice By The Redskins Defense But Did Just Enough To Get The Giants The Win. Washington QB Billy Kilmer Did Not Fare Well Either.
