LANDOVER, Md. -- If ever an extra point was going to go awry, this was the time.The Tampa Bay Buccaneers had already watched the Washington Redskins miss two short field goals and barely make another, with the kicker getting booed during his walk of shame back to the sideline.Now the Redskins were lining up to try to tie the game, having pulled within one point on a 6-yard, fourth-down touchdown catch by Santana Moss with 9 seconds to play. In steady rain, no less.
