Robert Griffin III
Tampa Bay Buccaneers
TAMPA, Fla. -- Billy Cundiff turned from goat to hero with one swift kick. Cundiff atoned for three earlier misses by booting a 41-yard field goal with three seconds
left Sunday to lift the Washington Redskins to a 24-22 victory over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Rookie quarterback Robert Griffin III drove the Redskins to the winning score after the
Buccaneers had overcome an 18-point deficit to go ahead 22-21 with 1:42 left on Connor Barth's
47-yard field goal. Griffin completed three straight passes on the final drive and had a 15-
yard run to shatter Tampa Bay's hopes for a come-from-behind win. Cundiff had missed from 31 yards earlier in the fourth quarter and from 41 and 57 yards in
