Sloppy First Quarter For Buccaneers But Still Scoreless In DC

If I were the Washington Redskins offensive coordinator I would hand it off to Ryan Torain on every play until the Buccaneers prove they can stop him, which so far they have not. In just the first quarter, Torain has 126 rushing yards on 12 carries and is gashing the Buccaneer defense on every attempt. Fortunately for the Buccaneers, Washington has missed a field goal to end their first drive and in two subsequent drives attempted a pass on third down which resulted in an incompletion and a sack and the game remains scoreless.

Why anyone would attempt to pass on the Buccaneers right now is beyond me, as Torain is currently averaging over 10 yards per carry.

Josh Freeman and the Buccaneer offense has yet to get in sync, failing to complete a pass on 3rd and 1 twice and also throwing a near interception that DeAngelo Hall bobbled on a third possession. To make matters worse, rookie DT Gerald McCoy has gone to the locker room with an apparent arm injury.
