LANDOVER, Md., Dec. 22 (UPI) -- Eli Manning threw three touchdown strikes and racked up 268 passing yards Monday, leading the New York Giants to a 45-12 win over Washington.

Ahmad Bradshaw rushed for two touchdowns as New York (8-6) remained a game behind Dallas for the final NFC playoff spot.

The Redskins (4-10) were embarrassed by New York's defense, which recorded five sacks and picked off three Washington passes.

Manning completed 19-of-26 passes, connecting with Mario Manningham, Steve Smith and Derek Hagan for touchdowns, while Bradshaw carried the ball nine time for 61 yards.

The Redskins' Jason Campbell passed for 192 yards with a touchdown and two interceptions.

The Giants need wins in their final two games against Carolina and Minnesota and at least one Dallas loss to make the playoffs.
