    LANDOVER, Md. Eric Lichaj Jersey . -- Ball in hand, Danny Woodhead reached for the pylon. The officials hands went up. Touchdown -- and certain victory -- for the San Diego Chargers. Defeat for the Washington Redskins, and a place in the basement of the NFC East. Not quite. Referee Jerome Boger looked at the replay and decided the ball didnt touch the bright orange marker. The ball was placed inside the 1-yard line. First-and-goal. Twenty-one seconds remaining. The Redskins held. One run and two passes failed to move the ball. The Chargers opted to kick a short field goal to send the game into overtime, and Washington won it, 30-24, on fullback Darrel Youngs 4-yard run on the opening drive of the extra period. "First-and-1 on the goal line? Most cases thats a touchdown," Washington linebacker Brian Orakpo said. "Our defence, everybody looked in each others eyes. I could remember: Do not cross this line, this goal line. On the field, London Fletcher and everybody reiterating it to each other, like: They do not cross this line right here." The replay reversal and the goal-line stand made the difference, at least for a few more days, between relevance and season-out-to-pasture for the Redskins (3-5), who, despite their record, remain only 1 1/2 games off the pace in the weak NFC East ahead of a trip to Minnesota (1-7) on Thursday. Young was the unlikely man of the hour. He had carried the ball only twice all season and had scored only three touchdowns in his three-plus years in the NFL. On Sunday, he was the goal-line bruiser, scoring on a pair of 1-yard runs in regulation before storming his way into the end zone 6:01 into the extra period. "Theyll definitely be more aware of DY -- the three-touchdown fullback," quarterback Robert Griffin III said with a smile. Griffin completed 23 of 32 passes for 291 yards with one interception and ran six times for 17 yards. He has been far from consistent in his second NFL season, but he looked more like an RG3-style showcase player Sunday. He overcame an early interception in his own end zone and lived dangerously throughout the game, pitching the ball at the last minute on option plays and scrambling for open space, including a 10-yard ramble that ended when he was flung to the turf by Thomas Keiser. "A lot of people criticize me for some of that stuff all of the time," Griffin said. "And, you know, I couldve went out of bounds and wed have been short of the first down. I saw an opportunity to fly, so I popped out my wings and tried to fly." Griffin also found receivers when they were open -- something else thats been missing this season. Pierre Garcon had seven receptions for 172 yards, and Alfred Morris rushed 25 times for 121 yards and a score. The Chargers (4-4), trying to keep pace in the top-heavy AFC West, overcame a 10-point deficit late in regulation. There was some thought in the San Diego locker room that Woodheads touchdown should have counted. "I thought he got in," said Philip Rivers, who completed 29 of 46 passes for 341 yards with two touchdowns. "Especially when it was called on the field, I thought it was going to be a hard one to overturn." Still, the Chargers needed only 1 more yard to win, and they couldnt get it. Woodhead went nowhere on first-and-goal. A fade route for Antonio Gates on second down didnt come close, and neither did a third-down rollout throw to Keenan Allen. They then settled for overtime, tying the game on 19-yard field goal by Nick Novak with 3 seconds on the clock. "Im not questioning any of the calls," San Diego coach Mike McCoy said. "We did what we thought was best to win the football game and were moving on. ... Hey, in this business, wouldve, shouldve, couldve. If one of those three plays worked, theres no questions asked." The Chargers built a 14-7 first-half lead on special teams. They blocked two field goals -- 11 years to the day since they last blocked one -- and put two punts down at the 1-yard line. Lawrence Guy, picked up off waivers less than a month ago, blocked a field goal in the first quarter and batted a pass that caromed off Cam Thomas and into the arms of Sean Lissemore for a touchdown in the second quarter. Corey Liuget batted down back-to-back passes, then blocked a field goal on the last play of the first half. Notes: The Chargers set a franchise record by not allowing an offensive touchdown for a 12th consecutive quarter. The streak ended when Morris scored in the second quarter. ... Washingtons Santana Moss had his 700th career reception. ... The Redskins other two victories this season came against backup quarterbacks (Matt Flynn and Josh McCown). Tim Howard Jersey . -- Ricky Romeros comeback bid hit another road bump Tuesday in an ugly 18-4 Jays loss to a Detroit Tigers split squad. Joe Corona Jersey . -- Each time the Utah Jazz threatened Memphis lead, the Grizzlies responded with defensive stops.PHOENIX - The Phoenix Suns and point guard Eric Bledsoe have reached agreement on a five-year, $70 million contract, capping a long, sometimes-tense negotiation to keep him in the desert.The deal Wednesday is considerably more than the four-year, $48 million the Suns initially offered but well below the five-year, $80 million-plus maximum contract Bledsoes agent, Rich Paul, sought for the restricted free agent.The sides didnt budge in the negotiations until talks finally progressed in the last few days.All summer, I knew that I really would be most comfortable coming back to Phoenix because of the great fans, my Suns teammates and our coaches, Bledsoe said in a statement released by the team. I am very happy it was able to work out this way.Bledsoe faced an Oct. 1 deadline to sign a $3.7 million qualifying offer to play for the Suns this season, then become an unrestricted free agent.I learned long ago that it doesnt matter how stormy the sea is as long as the ship comes in, and today we are thrilled that the ship has come in and Eric will remain a Sun for a long time, Suns president of basketball operations Lon Babby said in a statement. He will be an integral part not only of our basketball team, but our Phoenix community.The Suns see Bledsoe as a critical part of their double point-guard system. He missed much of last season after undergoing his second surgery to repair a meniscus in his right knee.When Bledsoe teamed with fellow point guard Goran Dragic last year, the Suns won two-thirds of their games. But injuries kept the duo apart, most significantly the knee surgery.While the Suns coveted Bledssoes skills a€” particularly his drives to the basket and defence a€” as well as his obvious upside, they balked at giving the 24-year-old guard a max contract but felt highly enough of him to give a rich deal. Erik Palmer-Brown Jersey. We are thrilled Eric Bledsoe will be in a Phoenix Suns uniform for years to come, general manager Ryan McDonough said. Eric is one the most exciting and dynamic two-way players in the league. He played very well for us on both ends of the floor last season and we feel he is well on his way to establishing himself as one of the elite players in the NBA.Despite Bledsoes knee injury, the Suns won a surprising 48 games and just missed the playoffs.Bledsoe was the backup to Chris Paul with the Los Angeles Clippers before the Suns acquired him and Caron Butler in a three-team trade that sent journeyman forward Jared Dudley to the Clippers and a second-round draft pick to Milwaukee.Bledsoe had knee surgery in October of 2011, then again last January.Injuries limited him to 43 games last season, 40 as a starter. He averaged 17.7 points and 5.5 assists.Lon, Ryan and the Suns have shown confidence in me, and I am looking to take that responsibility and help our team get better from last year and position ourselves to win an NBA championship, Bledsoe said. Its why I came back to Phoenix.Dragic, carrying a bigger load when Bledsoe was out, had a breakout season, averaging 20.3 points and 5.9 assists, shooting 50.5 per cent from the field, 41 per cent from 3-point range. The Suns added a third point guard to the mix in the off-season, signing high-scoring free-agent Isaiah Thomas.
