Oh, goddammit.

This was supposed to be the game that started Washington's playoff push. The guy who says he shot Osama showed up to give them a pep talk and everything, and they were allegedly turnt, and RG3's ankle held up well enough to start again, and anyway, the Buccaneers are 1-8.

So of course, in the very first play out of the game, Griffin took the snap out of the shotgun, looked left, and passed a ball to Niles Paul. Paul bobbled it into the air and directly into the hands of Bucs linebacker Danny Lansanah. Because Tampa Bay sucks, they couldn't take advantage of the short field, and ended up settling for a field goal.

After trading punts, Washington got the ball back on their four-yard line. On third down, Griffin dropped back, and threw a pass that was tipped by Buccaneers linebacker Mason Foster directly into the hands of corner Johnthan Banks, who rumbled into the endzone to give Tampa Bay the 10-0 lead.

No one is surprised.
