Bucs Vs. Redskins Reaction: Few Tampa Bay Reserves Stand Out In Defeat

There wasn't much to like about Tampa Bay's 30-3 loss to the Washington Redskins on Wednesday, but a few Buccaneers players managed to turn in solid performances:

The offensive line was absolutely horrible, but Derek Hardman appeared to be the least awful of them all. Ratlliff didn't make it easy on his receivers, but somehow Tiquan Underwood managed 6 receptions for 82 yards, and looked good one kickoff return, which he ran out for 39 yards. He even managed a tackle to save a touchdown on an interception. Meanwhile, Sammie Stroughter had two catches for 15 yards, and that about ends the list of positives on offense. None of the running backs managed any yards, while receptions were sparse, and blocking was awful.

With their preseason schedule now complete, the Bucs turn their attention to the Carolina Panthers, who are their Week 1 opponent on Sept. 9.
