This game was a tale of two halves, with the Redskins dominating the first half to a 21-6 lead, and the Buccaneers imposing their will in the second. Tampa Bay scored 16 unanswered points in the second half before Washington quickly made it down the field to set up the game-winning field goal.

Robert Griffin III had a typically impressive day throwing the ball, but it was Josh Freeman's second half that stole the show. If not for Washington's success on the ground, this game may have had an entirely different outcome.

The Redskins move to 2-2 and will head home to face the Atlanta Falcons, while the Buccaneers have a week to reassess their strategy, and reflect on their 1-3 record on their bye week

Final Score: Buccaneers 22, Redskins 24
