LANDOVER, Md. - On the first play of a 27-7 loss to the Buccaneer!s, Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III threw a low pass that tight end Niles Paul bobbled twice before the ball floated away and was intercepted, leading to a field goal for Tampa Bay. On Washingtons second possession — which began, inauspiciously enough, with a false-start penalty on receiver Pierre Garcon — left tackle Trent Williams went down with right knee ligament and ankle injuries and didnt return. And on Washingtons third possession — which opened with a false-start penalty on tight end Logan Paulsen — Griffin was picked off again, this time when linebacker Marion Foster reached up to deflect the pass and cornerback Johnthan Banks grabbed the ball to return it 19 yards for a touchdown. That elicited boos from the home crowd, a soundtrack heard repeatedly Sunday after mistakes by the Redskins — including another turnover, two missed field-goal attempts by Kai Forbath, and a complete inability to cover rookie receiver Mike Evans. It was a travesty out there, Griffin said. Rookie coach Jay Grudens take after his team fell to 3-7? It really looked like the first preseason game, Gruden said. The Redskins are now 1-8 in Griffins past nine starts, dating to last season — and the only victory in that span came in Week 2 against Jacksonville, when the 2012 NFL Offensive Rookie of the Year left in the first quarter with a dislocated left ankle. He returned in Week 9, when Washington lost at Minnesota; the Redskins then had their bye last week, but that extra time to rest and prepare showed zero benefits against Tampa Bay (2-8). Gruden was asked what has happened to Griffin since his breakout first season after winning the Heisman Trophy and being the second pick in the NFL draft. Thats something that we have to find the answer to, Gruden said, and he has to find the answer to. Asked whether Griffin has shown he should be the teams starting quarterback, Gruden replied: After todays performance, nobody proved they deserved to start anywhere. Offensive line, weve got to look at, he added. Running backs. Everybody. You hate to pin a struggling performance on one person until you see the film. ... This was a total team effort, this horrific game. But he has got a lot of improving to do, obviously. The defence allowed Evans to catch seven passes from Josh McCown for 207 yards and two TDs — the best receiving day for an NFL rookie since Anquan Boldin of the Cardinals in 2003 also topped 200 yards and had two scores. Griffin was 23 for 32 for 207 yards, the pair of interceptions, and a 30-yard touchdown off a screen pass to Roy Helu in the last minute of the second quarter. He was sacked six times. All of this came against an opponent that had one win all season before Sunday and entered with a five-game losing streak, scoring no more than 17 points in any of its four most recent games. It was just bad ball out there today. It was not looking past Tampa Bay, because we cant afford to look past anyone, Griffin said. We are not a very good football team right now and (we) have a long way to go. Every guy has to look himself in the mirror and say that. Notes: Williams has an MCL injury and will have an MRI on Monday. Other Redskins injuries: DT Chris Baker (chest), LG Shawn Lauvao (concussion), TE Jordan Reed (hamstring), LB Trent Murphy (knee). ... Forbath had made 15 of 16 field-goal attempts this season, including 11 in a row. He went 0 for 2 on Sunday, missing tries from 47 and 50 yards, both wide right. ___ Follow Howard Fendrich on Twitter at http://twitter.com/HowardFendrich ___ Online: AP NFL website: www.pro32.ap.org and AP NFL Twitter feed: www.twitter.com/AP_NFL Andrew Adams Jersey .Mack, a reserve guard who came in averaging 3.8 points, made all six of his 3-pointers as the Hawks went 16 for 28 from behind the arc.Trailing 50-38 midway through the second quarter, Atlanta outscored Cleveland 89-48 the rest of the way and sent the Cavaliers to their largest loss of the season.

Packers coach Mike McCarthy said Rodgers was limited in practice Friday and has not yet been medically cleared to play as the former MVP continues his recovery from a fractured collarbone. Matt Flynn will again get the start Sunday with Rodgers set to miss a seventh straight game. "I thought Aaron Rodgers did everything he possibly could, but this is an organizational decision," said McCarthy on Friday. "As an organization we are not ready for him to play. Im not going to get into ifs and buts and who made what decision. Matt Flynn is the starter and were excited to play the Pittsburgh Steelers." Rodgers has been practicing in earnest each of the last two weeks. He had hoped to play last Sunday against Dallas, but remained sidelined and watched as Flynn rallied the Packers to a 37-36 victory that kept Green Bayss playoff hopes very much alive.dddddddddddd The Packers now control their own postseason destiny, as wins over the Steelers and Chicago Bears over the final two weeks would give Green Bay the NFC North title. Flynn has led Green Bay to back-to-back victories, both one-point decisions. The Packers held on for a 22-21 win over Atlanta in Week 14 before last weeks 23-point rally against the Cowboys. Over those two starts, he has completed 50-of-71 passes for 557 yards and five touchdowns with two interceptions. Rodgers has not played since sustaining his injury on the opening drive of Green Bays eventual 27-20 loss to rival Chicago on Nov. 4. The Packers proceeded to go 0-3-1 over the next four weeks with their star signal-caller on the shelf, before to turning things around the past two games. Packers running back Eddie Lacy was also limited in practice and listed as probable as he battles an ankle issue. Defensive tackle Johnny Jolly wont play because of a shoulder/neck injury.
