The Washington Redskins made it back to .500 Sunday afternoon after they defeated the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, 24-22.
The difference was a 41-yard field goal with three seconds left by Washington kicker Billy Cundiff. It had been a rough day for Cundiff up until that point. He missed three field goals leading up to the game-winner.
Cundiff secured the win for Washington after Tampa Bay took the lead for the second time of the day with 1:42 left. Connor Barth hit his third field goal for the game, a 47-yarder, to give the Bucs a 22-21 lead.
On the last drive, Robert Griffin III was able to drive Washington down the field, which included a couple of completions to Santana Moss and Fred Davis.
It was another strong day for RGIII as he completed 26-of-35 passes for 323 yards. The rookie had seven carries for 43 yards and one touchdown. Griffin could have had a two rushing touchdowns, but a fumble at the end of the quarter went into the end zone and was recovered by Pierre Garcon.
Alfred Morris also stepped up for Washington Sunday, rushing for 113 yards and one touchdown.
Besides the kicking game, Washington had issues with third downs. They converted one third down out of 10 attempts Sunday.
The Redskins will need to take care of their problems by next week. They will be home to face the undefeated Atlanta Falcons.
