The Washington Redskins have nobody to blame but themselves for losing to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers today. That's what happens when you botch a game-tying extra point, miss two easy field goals and exhibit poor clock management all game. So if you're going to suggest this is all sour grapes, it's not.â†µ
But it's worth noting that the referees missed a crucial call that could have prevented this outcome. Tampa Bay took a 17-10 lead on a 41-yard touchdown by Kellen Winslow, but Brian Orakpo was very clearly held on the play. For some reason, the referees swallowed their whistle, as they have all season.
It's kind of hard to more blatantly hold someone than that. If that play gets called back, Tampa Bay has a third and 20 from their own 49-yard line and surely don't score like that. Chalk that up to another missed opportunity.â†µ
