Redskins Vs. Buccaneers, Week 4: Washington's offense is no longer offensive

Matt Stamey-US PRESSWIRE - Presswire

The Washington Redskins pulled out a victory against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on a last-second Billy Cundiff field goal.

The Washington Redskins were able to defeat the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in the final moments of Sunday's 24-22 thriller on a Billy Cundiff field goal.

Despite blowing a 21-6 lead, the Redskins rallied back to run their record to 2-2. Washington looked all but out of it late, but Robert Griffin III led his group on a late march. Cundiff had already missed three field goal attempts on the day, but nailed a 41-yard kick to send the Skins home happy.

As pointed out at Hogs Haven by Ken Meringolo, the offense has been a serious bright spot for this team after being dormant for years:

Let's pour credit all over where it is due: our offense can score points and move the ball. Kyle and Mike Shanahan's offense looks like it has arrived, enhanced and specialized by the transcendent athleticism of its trigger man. Griffin never looks rattled, and so far he has gotten up off the mat after every bone-rattling hit he has absorbed. Our offensive line is doing what it is being asked to do and it is being aided by the precision of the various styles being employed by the offense--defenses are having to play a bit more honestly against us than they have in the past.

With Griffin and Shanahan working well on offense, Washington has a chance in any game for the first time in years.
