Impact player

Robert Griffin III came through with yet another solid late-game drive. He completed all four of his passes for 46 yards and ran once for 15 more, helping set up the game-winning field goal. Griffin doesn't shrink from key moments.

Under the radar

It's tough to say that a running back who gained more than 100 yards is under the radar. But Alfred Morris can't get lost in the hoopla over the game-winning drive and other mishaps. He made defenders miss and showed good vision.

Did you notice ...

All the yards after the catch for the Redskins? Tight end Fred Davis picked up a bunch on his own, and on that last drive it was critical on his 20-yard grab. But it wasn't just Davis as the receivers all had good runs after the catch.

From the sidelines

Tampa Bay looks like a bad and sometimes undisciplined team that takes sloppy penalties. But they are aggressive and tough-minded thanks to coach Greg Schiano. Give them credit for sticking with their offensive game plan.

The Redskins made a bad quarterback look like a good one in the second half. It's tough to ask these cornerbacks to cover long, especially against taller talented receivers. Offensive coordinator Kyle Shan?ahan's game plan should have produced at least 30 points.
