Buccaneers Vs. Redskins Halftime Score: Tampa Bay Trails Washington 16-0

In the final preseason game of the season the Tampa Bay Buccaneers have laid a goose egg in the first half against the Washington Redskins, and trail 16-0. Both teams are playing their back up and third string players while the starters get the night off.

The Buccaneers offense has been terrible Wednesday night with only three yards rushing on seven carries between Michael Smith and Mossis Madu. Starting quarterback Brett Ratliff is not doing much better as he is 7-for-11 with 70 yards, but he also has an interception. The Buccaneers offense has not even made it past midfield through two quarters of play.

Their defense has done a fairly good job by holding the Redskins to three field goals and one touchdown. The one touchdown came in the second quarter and was set up by a 46 yard pass from Kirk Cousins to Anthony Armstrong which put the Redskins at the Buccaneers 12-yard line. Then a few plays later Eric Royster punched it passed the defense for a 1-yard touchdown run.
