Washington Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III told reporters after the team's 27-7 loss to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Sunday that the loss was a "travesty," and that right now the Redskins are "not a very good football team.”

Griffin completed 23-of-32 passes for 207 yards on Sunday. He threw one touchdown and two interceptions.

The Redskins managed 322 yards of offense, but also turned the ball over three times. Redskins kicker Kai Forbath missed two field goals -- one from 47 yards out in the second quarter, and a 50-yard attempt in the third quarter. It was the first time Forbath missed two field goals in a game all season.

Griffin was also sacked by Tampa Bay six times. The quarterback took the blame for all six sacks, saying he "can do better."

From The Washington Post:

“All of the sacks are on me. Period. We’re 3-7, and everybody in this room knows that, and everybody in that locker room knows that. We can’t do what 3-7 football teams do. We can’t throw knives and stab each other in the back. I think we have good people in our locker room, men of God that are going to stick together and stay strong. So when you ask me that question, and I say all of the sacks are on me, it’s because I’m looking myself in the mirror and saying, I can do better. I have to do better. I need every man in that locker room, players and coaches, to look themselves in the mirror and say, ‘What can I do better?’”

On defense, the Redskins gave up 209 yards and two touchdowns to receiver Mike Evans.

The Redskins play the San Francisco 49ers on the road next Sunday.
