Play of the Game

On second and two from the Vikings 46-yard line nearly four minutes into the fourth quarter, Patrick Ramsey (11) faked a handoff to Ladell Betts (46). Taylor Jacobs (84), who started running toward the opposite sideline before the snap, reversed direction, then turned and ran up the field. Jacobs caught Ramsey's pass between Corey Chavous (21) and Willie Offord (24) at the 16-yard line. Just as free safety Brian Russell (27) was closing in, Jacobs paused, allowing Russell to run by him. Jacobs was eventually caught from behind by Offord at the 1-yard line, setting up Betts' touchdown run on the next play. The score gave the Redskins a 21-10 lead. - Kathy Orton
