The Tampa Bay Buccaneers will try to snap a two-game losing streak when they face the Washington Redskins on Sunday afternoon. It's a pivotal game for both teams, as they're each 1-2 after the first three weeks of the season.

Offense hasn't been a problem for the Redskins in 2012. Led by rookie quarterback Robert Griffin III, Washington is sixth in the league in total yards per game and first in scoring at 33 points per game. The defense has been a different story; it's 30th in yards allowed per game and have given up 33.7 points per game. A vulnerable defense comes at a good time for the Bucs' offense, which is last in total yardage and 24th in scoring.

On the injury front, Bucs cornerback Anthony Gaitor will not play, but the team is expected to have DB E.J. Biggers for the first time this year. Washington cornerback Cedric Griffin is out, and wide receiver Pierre Garcon, tackle Trent Williams and wide receiver Brandon Banks are listed as questionable.

Game Time: 4:25 p.m. ET

TV: FOX (blacked out locally)

Radio: WFUS 103.5 / WDAE 620 AM
