Another penalty for roughing the passer came in the third quarter when Mason Foster drilled Griffin well outside of the end zone after he released the football. The call delighted Griffin.

Two more hits came on sacks, one on a botched screen pass.

In the game-winning drive that started with 1:42 remaining, the Buccaneers knocked down Griffin twice. But, as usual, he bounced back up as he led the Redskins into field goal range.

All of this created a 60 minutes of football that didn’t exact a similar toll on Griffin’s body to weeks past. The creative formations — pistol, no-back shotgun — remained. And Griffin survived.
