Pierre Garçon Makes The Top 5 Midseason Catches

You remember the play, the final one of the Redskins' 90-yard march down the field to beat the Eagles with just more than 20 seconds left.

The 4-yard strike to Pierre Garçon put the Redskins ahead 23-20, giving Philadelphia their second straight loss at FedExField.

"Coach Gruden challenged us last night to be resilient, and as we all know all these games come down, it's seems to be the last couple of minutes," Cousins said. "And you're going to have setbacks along the way – and we certainly had our fair share – but we kept challenging each other to respond and be resilient."

The touchdown catch was one of three that Garçon corralled in the waning minutes, each of them a testament to his fearlessness in the midst of coverage.

"It's definitely a big motivation to keep going," said Garçon, who finished his day with seven catches for 55 yards. "We're happy. We came through at the end and come from behind."

Garçon finishes behind Keenan Allen, DeAndre Hopkins, Stefon Diggs and Gary Barnidge.
