Billy May Have Saved Job With Last Second FG Win

I hate last second field goal wins/losses more than anyone, but Cundiff missed 3 prior FGs so the Skins would have been up by 30-22 (or at least 27-22 as 2 were easily makeable which would have made my prediction of 28-21 so close!). The Redskins pulled off a 24-22 win over the Bucs in the last few seconds with a FG. If he didn’t make that 4th FG, I doubt he’d still be a Redskin this morning.
With the Redskins facing the #1 rushing defense, they managed 160 yards rushing, even giving Rookie RB Alfred Morris his first 100+ yard game. RG3 was on fire again rushing for almost 2 TDs (one was fumbled in the end zone and recovered by Garcon) and threw for 323 yards.
The Skins had an 18 point lead at the half, but the D allowed a few huge plays by the Bucs and they managed a TD late in the 4th and because they were down by 2, tried for a 2 point conversion, got a false start penalty, but went for it again and failed. That I will give to the D. 21-19 Redskins. With 1:42 remaining, the very consistent kicker of the Bucs got the lead 22-21 over the Redskins, but RG3 now had the ball. He threw 3 consecutive passes and moved the Skins from their own 20 to the Bucs’ 41, then ran for 15 yards himself to lead up to the game winning FG.
It was a very exciting yet nail biting and frustrating all at the same time. HTTR!
One injury that didn’t happen during the game, but made an impact was S Brandon Meriweather collided with receiver Aldrick Robinson in the warm-up. Meriweather hurt his knee and Robinson was actually knocked out cold.
Here are all the offensive numbers.
