Panthers down 17-9 midway thru third

Washington and Carolina have traded TDs early in the third quarter, leaving the Redskins up, 17-9, over Carolina.

The first TD came after a Delhomme throw was picked off by Washington's DeAngelo Hall and run back 44 yards to the Carolina 1. The pass was behind Muhsin Muhammad, but Moose did get both hands on it before deflecting it to Hall.

Washington quickly scored on a 1-yard dive by Clinton Portis to go ahead 17-2.

Carolina finally showed some life after that. Kenny Moore ran the ensuing kickoff back to Washington's 40, and Carolina took only 4 plays to score. The TD came on a 17-yard Delhomme pass to TE Jeff King, who celebrated with a spike through his legs.

That made it 17-9, Washington, with 8:31 left in the third quarter.
