Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie snatches Redskins’ hopes and dreams with pair of picks

The Washington Redskins’ summer vacation got off to an early start on Sunday thanks in big part to two big picks by a former HBCU star. Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie picked off two passes by Kirk Cousins as the New York Giants beat the Washington Redskins 13-10 on Sunday.

Both of Rodgers-Cromartie’s picks were costly for the Redskins. The first was a doozy as he stepped in front of a pass sailing out of bounds and managed to get both feet down while securing the ball.


The second pick, the 30th of his career, would be the proverbial nail in the coffin for the Redskins. The veteran defensive back trailed Pierre Garcon for much of the play before breaking on the ball at just the right moment and snagging the ball.


The loss eliminated Washington from playoff contention while Rodgers-Cromartie and his New York teammates will continue dancing in the playoffs.
