Redskins' Moss says Bucs played radio games

TAMPA (FOX 13) -

Washington Redskins rookie quarterback Robert Griffin III beat the Bucs calling his own plays. The Redskins' headsets went out on Washington's last drive and  one player is pointing at the Bucs for pulling the plug.

"Happens every time," Moss told Yahoo Sports after the game. "No lie. I've been in the league 12 years, I've been in plenty of games, and the home team goes, 'Oh well.'" Moss then mimicked yanking an imaginary plug out of a wall.

Griffin was pointing to his helmet during the final drive, indicating he couldn't hear anything.  He confirmed after the game that his radio had gone out.

A similar thing happened to the Bucs a week ago in Dallas on a critical third-and-long play on the Bucs' final drive. Moss isn't the first player or coach to accuse their opponent of sabotage.

Asked about Santana's conspiracy theory,  Bucs players made light of it.

"Yeah, that's crazy man," said Donald Penn. "You never know. You remember that 'Forrest Gump' movie when he got there up on the stage and they ripped out all the [speaker wire]. You never know what's going on back there. It's a coincidence that it's happened on the road to the road teams. Hopefully it doesn't happen to us again."

"I didn't know that," added Mike Williams. "I guess it's a home field advantage. I guess the crowd knocks it out, I guess."

Despite the issues, Griffin engineered a game-winning drive, taking the Redskins 56 yards in the final 1:48 to set up Billy Cundiff for a game-winning field goal. The Redskins beat the Bucs 24-22.

Griffin threw for 323 yards and ran for 43 yards.
