A 28-yard Ryan Kerrigan interception return for a touchdown were the only points scored by the Washington Redskins who are tied with with the Atlanta Falcons at halftime.
Kerrigan, a second-year linebacker from Purdue, jumped in front of a Matt Ryan pass and ran unopposed into the end zone, which preceded a Lambeau Leap.
Atlanta would get on the board with under a minute remaining half when Ryan connected with Tony Gonzalez in the back of the end zone.
Washington struggled to contain the veteran tight end who caught nine passes for 86 yards and the score.
Kicking woes continue to plague the Redskins as Billy Cundiff pushed a 31-yard attempt wide right in the second quarter. He missed his first three attempts in Tampa last weekend before successfully connecting on the game winner.
Cundiff is now 6-of-11 on attempts this season.
On a more positive note for the Redskins, Alfred Morris continued exceeding his late-round value. Morris rushed nine times for 86 yards in the half.
Robert Griffin III was 6 of 10 for 52 yards.
