“The whole drive was a little complicated,” said Griffin, who completed 26 of 35 passes for 323 yards without an interception.
“In practice every week, we always practice me calling the plays in two-minute, acting as if the headset goes out. The funny thing was the headset did go out on that drive. That’s why I was having to run back and forth to the sideline,” Griffin added. “I had to call a couple of my own plays, and we moved the chains and got in field-goal range. It was very neat how that practice situation, that practice scenario, actually played out in the game.”

An odd story coming out of Tampa Bay, where Washington Redskins wide receiver Aldrick Robinson and strong safety Brandon Meriweather are both inactive Sunday following a collision during pregame warmups.
According to The Washington Post, Robinson was struck in the head by Meriweather’s left knee as Robinson bent down to pick up a football in the end zone.
It’s very rare that you get to watch a man’s career hanging in the balance before your very eyes.
But that’s what unfolded Sunday night, as Washington Redskins kicker Billy Cundiff lined up for his final field-goal attempt against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
Cundiff missed his first three kicks, including a 31-yard gimme that would have provided helpful breathing room for Washington early in the fourth quarter.
Cornerback DeAngelo Hall, who had a first-half interception to set up a Redskins’ touchdown, called the overall play of the defense “average.”
Said Hall: “We can’t win letting leads like that go. We’ve got to buckle down and finish games off. That has to be our identity. We have to go out there and play for 60 minutes and keep hitting, keep hitting offenses in the mouth. We kind of let up a little bit. We’ll keep working on that, trying to get better.”
