Buccaneers Vs. Redskins: Long Reception By Arrelious Benn Sets Up Connor Barth Field Goal

Leave it to the Redskins passing defense to allow Josh Freeman to throw his longest competion of the 2010 season.

DeAngelo Hall, who likes to cover the opposing team's best wide receiver, gave up a 64-yard gain to rookie receiving threat Arrelious Benn to set up Tampa Bay's first score of the game. Benn got past Hall to catch the ball, and then Hall hung on to the rookie for several yards before Kareem Moore came over to help bring him down.

Fortunately for the Redskins, the drive fizzled out there. Two runs and an incomplete pass inside Washington's 10-yard line led the Buccaneers to bring on kicker Connor Barth. Unlike Graham Gano, Barth kicked the ball through from short range to pull the visitors back to a score of 7-3.
