Robert Griffin III led the Redskins to a 24-22 victory at Tampa Bay on Sunday and, making matters more impressive, he did it all despite not having proper communication with his coaches because of a headset malfunction on the final drive.


Griffin could be seen pointing to his helmet with both index fingers during the final drive as it to say, “I can’t hear anything.” He confirmed after the game that his radio had gone out.


“The whole drive was a little complicated,” Griffin said, according to the Washington Times. “In practice, every week we always practice me calling the plays in 2-minute acting as if the headset goes out. And the funny this was the headset did go out on that drive.”


Redskins receiver Santana Moss, who had three catches for 33 yards, suspected the Bucs sabotaged them.


“Happens every time,” Moss said after the game, per Yahoo! Sports’ Eric Adelson. “No lie. I’ve been in the league 12 years, I’ve been in plenty of games, and the home team goes, ‘Oh well.’”


According to Adelson, Moss mimicked yanking an imaginary plug out of a wall.


The act of a home team sabotaging a visiting team’s headset communication on a last drive is hardly unusual; we’ve posted several examples of teams saying their headsets went out on the final drive. We don’t doubt that it happened, and that the Bucs did it on purpose.


Giffin still had no trouble leading Washington to victory. He went 26/35 for 323 yards, and ran for 43 yards and a score. The Skins went 56 yards in 1:39 to set up Billy Cundiff’s winning field goal. And for Cundiff’s sake, thank goodness that he made it after missing his first three attempts.
