Redskins Vs. Buccaneers: Billy Cundiff late field goal lifts Washington to 24-22 win

Kim Klement-US PRESSWIRE - Presswire

The Washington Redskins escaped Tampa with a 24-22 win over the Buccaneers on a very late 41-yard field goal by Billy Cundiff.

The Washington Redskins defeated the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, 24-22, on Sunday at Raymond James Stadium.

The Redskins jumped out to a 21-3 lead through most of the first two quarters before the Buccaneers added a 57-yard field goal late in the first half. The Buccaneers shut down the Redskins' offense in the second half and completed the comeback with a 47-yard field to take the lead with 1:42 to play. Robert Griffin III was efficient in the first half leading the Redskins to the lead but was held without a touchdown pass. His counterpart, Josh Freeman, had one interception in the first half before leading the Buccaneers on four unanswered scoring drives. Griffin would have the last laugh as he scrambled for 15 yards deep into Tampa Bay territory to set up Billy Cundiff's game-winning field goal. Cundiff had missed his first three field goals of the contest.
