The Buccaneers and Redskins have split 16 all-time regular-season meetings, with Washington knotting the series by virtue of a 16-13 home win during Week 4 of last season. The Redskins had lost three straight to Tampa Bay, all on the road, prior to that victory, but have prevailed in the last two bouts between the clubs held at FedEx Field. The Bucs last won in Washington via a 35-13 verdict in 2003.
The teams have also split a pair of postseason matchups, with the Redskins winning a 2005 NFC First-Round Playoff by a 17-10 count in Tampa and the Bucs posting a 14-13 home decision over Washington in a 1999 NFC Divisional Playoff.
Shanahan owns a 3-1 career record against Tampa Bay, with each of those encounters coming during his tenure with the Denver Broncos from 1995-98. The Buccaneers’ Morris is 0-1 all-time versus Washington and will be opposing Shanahan for the first time as a head man.
