Consider this: the last time the Redskins scored to come from behind and win a game in the last 10 seconds of a game was on Oct. 3, 1999. It’s also worth noting that the fourth-quarter comeback was the Redskins’ first by a rookie quarterback since Jason Campbell against the Carolina Panthers back on Nov. 26, 2006.

"That kid is special," cornerback Josh Wilson said according to the Post. "He is the real deal. He’s stepped up, and I’ve never had so much confidence in a two-minute drive. Let’s just leave some time on the clock. It doesn’t matter if they get this field goal or not, we know he’s going to get this ball down there and put us in position to win."

It was later revealed that his headset was not working on that drive, so he was actually calling the plays. There’s a lot that is happening on drives of that nature. Some coaches struggle with managing the clock in those scenarios, but to have a 22-year old rookie managing the clock and making the play calls in his 4th game as a pro is extremely impressive. I’m going to take a deeper look at that drive later, as it probably deserves its own post. If the season ended today, RG3 would be the unanimous choice for Rookie of the Year. He might even get some consideration for MVP:

"If you watched the [Buccaneers] game, we had a lot of guys running down there and working hard, but he just made play after play on special teams, and he does it week in and week out and he does it whether he’s double-teamed or not," Doughty said. "I guarantee you every single team game plans for [Alexander] and he still makes plays."

"The only thing that might be surprising to you all is that he's young and it happened to him," Moss said, via The Washington Post. "I mean, I've been in plenty of games that when we're away, we can't hear the call, especially on the last part of the game. So I'm almost thinking that that's something that they do in stadiums to say, 'Hey, you know, let's make it little harder for them.' "

Washington Redskins kicker Billy Cundiff might have saved his career with a game-winning field goal in the final moments Sunday against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, because the veteran kicker was 0-for-3 earlier in that game and had made just five of his first nine attempts this year after a famous miss to end the 2011 season.

Redskins' defense improves to passing grade

Indeed, the Madieu Williams-led defense limited the Buccaneers to a meager 132 yards in the first half, six first downs and a total of six points. Ryan Kerrigan and the rest of the Redskins’ front seven applied consistent pressure to Josh Freeman and, as a result, the quarterback never looked comfortable as he completed only 13 of 22 pass attempts for 88 yards. Freeman was also sacked once and picked off by DeAngelo Hall.

"There’s a big timing aspect," Cundiff said after the game. "Justin is snapping the ball and Sav [Rocca] is holding the ball well. It’s up to me to get into rhythm with those two guys. Those guys have been around a long time, and they are doing their job great. It’s matter of me getting on their page – and that’s a tough thing to do."

Redskins see modest signs of improvement from their defense - The Washington Post

"I felt like we got better," linebacker Rob Jackson said Monday in the locker room at Redskins Park. "We still gave up a few big plays in the second half.
