EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. — The New York Giants do know how to hold onto a lead.

New York didn’t let Washington steal a victory late, finishing off a 32-21 decision Thursday night on Odell Beckham Jr.’s 30-yard touchdown catch and Rueben Randle’s 41-yarder.

The Giants fell apart in the fourth quarter of losses to Dallas and Atlanta. This time, the Giants (1-2) dominated most of the action against injury-plagued Washington (1-2), which lost veteran cornerback DeAngelo Hall to a right leg injury that looked serious.

The Giants scored in nearly every way possible, beginning with Rashad Jennings blocking Tress Way’s punt for a safety on Washington’s opening series. Andre Williams scored on a 1-yard run, Josh Brown kicked three field goals, and Beckham toasted Bashaud Breeland to settle matters.

Randle had a 41-yard TD catch in the closing minutes, after which Washington’s Rashad Ross returned the kickoff 101 yards for the final score.

New York also led at halftime and through three quarters of its losses to the Cowboys and Falcons.

Prince Amukamara and Uani Unga had interceptions of Kirk Cousins, who struggled once more against New York. Last season, he threw four picks in a loss to New York.

Washington, which has lost five straight to the Giants, got field goals of 44 and 37 yards from Dustin Hopkins, but any thoughts of a comeback ended when Matt Jones fumbled on his way into the end zone with 91/2 minutes remaining. A late 4-yard TD pass to Chris Thompson and 2-point conversion brought the deficit to 11, then Randle made his scoring catch.

The victory provides some optimism for the Giants in the muddled NFC East, where Dallas is 2-0 but missing several stars, and Philadelphia is 0-2.

Eli Manning, who struggled in key situations in the previous two defeats, was coolly efficient, finishing 23 of 31 for 279 yards.

JAGUARS: Jacksonville could be without two starting offensive linemen at New England on Sunday. Right guard Brandon Linder was held out of practice Thursday, a day after he “kind of separated” his left shoulder during a passing drill. Linder says he’s “50-50” to play against the Patriots.

Left tackle Luke Joeckel was limited for the second consecutive day while recovering from a sprained left ankle. Joeckel twisted his ankle in the season opener and sat out last week’s game against Miami.

JETS: Cornerback Darrelle Revis, wide receiver Eric Decker and running back Chris Ivory are all uncertain to play Sunday against the Philadelphia Eagles because of injuries.

PACKERS: Running back Eddie Lacy and receiver Davante Adams missed practice because of ankle injuries.

PANTHERS: Linebacker Luke Kuechly remained out of practice because of a concussion, raising questions about whether he’ll miss a second straight game Sunday against New Orleans.

BEARS: Jimmy Clausen is taking all the snaps at practice so far this week as Chicago prepares for Sunday’s game at Seattle.

The Bears are not expected to officially announce Clausen as the starting quarterback until Friday. But he is doing all the first-team work while Jay Cutler nurses a strained hamstring.

THE NFL would only put a full-time franchise in London if all operational issues are worked out and the league is sure the team would be competitive, a league executive said.

Mark Waller, executive vice president of the NFL’s international division, said there is no time frame for possibly placing a team in London, adding that a decision will come “when we’re ready.”
