The Washington Redskins have managed to stay close with the San Francisco 49ers on Monday Night Football, despite plenty of self-inflicted mistakes. The latest near disaster came when Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III was scrambling out of the pocket and once again showed off his lack of ball security.

The ball was knocked loose and a miracle bounce let the ball bounce right back to the Redskins.

Washington then converted a field goal and cut the lead to 10-6, with plenty of football left to play.
