Buccaneers At Redskins: NFL Week 14 Game Capsules

After two straight defeats, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers desperately need a win this coming Sunday in order to keep their playoff chances alive. With the Saints and Falcons continuing to win, it doesn't seem likely that the Buccaneers will win the NFC South. But a wild card berth is still very much a possibility if the Buccaneers can finish strong in their final four games. That quest begins in the nation's capital this weekend when Raheem Morris' squad takes on the slumping Washington Redskins.

Here's a few facts, figures and trends about the two teams' series history, as well as up-to-date season stats for both squads.
