The missed opportunities the Washington Redskins had early in this game have come back to haunt them. The Redskins have potentially cost themselves 10 points by missing two field goals and not getting a touchdown at the end of the first half. Now, they are trailing.
Josh Freeman found Kellen Winslow over the top down the middle of the field for a 41-yard touchdown pass to give Tampa Bay the lead. Freeman snuck in on a quarterback sneak for the two-point conversion, and Tampa Bay now leads 17-10 with just over four minutes to go in the fourth quarter.
The Buccaneers got the ball at their own 20-yard line and methodically moved the ball up the field. They got a key catch from Cadillac Williams on third and seven to preserve the drive just before the touchdown pass. On the touchdown, it looked like the Buccaneers got away with holding Brian Orakpo, as one offensive lineman had him by the neck. No matter what, though, the Redskins now have to rally in a game they've led the entire time.
