Redskins Vs. Buccaneers 2012 Preview: Tampa Bay Seeks To Break Slide

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers are seeking their second win of 2012 when the Washington Redskins come to town.


The Tampa Bay Buccaneers host the Washington Redskins on Sunday afternoon at Raymond James Stadium in a battle of 1-2 teams.

The Bucs have been competitive in both of losses this year, falling to the New York Giants and Dallas Cowboys by a combined 13 points. Tampa Bay has been hanging tough under first-year head coach Greg Schiano, but so far has been unable to put together a complete effort since beating the Carolina Panthers.

The biggest issue has been pass defense, which the Bucs rank dead last in by giving up 353 yards per game through the air.

The Redskins have been somewhat of an afterthought for years, but look like an emerging young group with Robert Griffin III at the helm. Despite losing each of their past two contests, Washington has been entertaining to watch with an array of offensive packages.

The Redskins' strength has been their rushing attack, totaling 180.7 yards per game to place themselves second in the NFL behind the Kansas City Chiefs.
