WATCH: Washington safety Bobby McCain with a pick-six vs. Giants

By Bryan Manning

The Washington Football Team was clinging to a 6-0 lead during the third quarter of the Week 18 regular-season finale against the New York Giants. While New York’s offense was going nowhere, Washington still couldn’t pull away from its NFC East rival.

Washington safety Bobby McCain decided to do something about the WFT’s one-score lead, picking off New York quarterback Jake Fromm and returning the ball 30 yards for a touchdown to give Washington a 12-0 lead.

Washington went for the two-point conversion in an attempt to make it a 14-0 lead, but Taylor Heinicke’s pass to Antonio Gibson fell incomplete, and Washington maintained its 12-0 lead.

It was McCain’s third interception of the season, which leads Washington, and the first touchdown of his career.

Washington now leads the Giants 19-7 in the fourth quarter.
