EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) - In a wet, sloppy game, New York beat Washington 20-6.

Giants quarterback Eli Manning was knocked out of the game after spraining his left ankle late in the first half.

Manning started his 150th consecutive game, but was injured throwing an incomplete pass under pressure from defensive end Chris Baker. He was intercepted by Josh Wilson on the next play and limped off the field, heading directly to the locker room. It was his career-high 27th interceptioln this season, tops in the NFL.

Curtis Painter replaced Manning at the start of the second half and the Giants announced after the second series that Manning would not return.

New York also lost wide receivers Rueben Randle to a knee injury and Hakeem Nicks to an ankle. Guard James Brewer left the game in the second quarter with an ankle injury and his return was questionable.

Wilson, who intercepted Manning's last pass, sustained a head and calf injury on the play, which set up a Washington field goal. He was cleared of a concussion, but knocked out by the calf.

Washington defensive end Jarvis Jenkins also suffered a head injury in the first half.
