Buccaneers Fall to 0-4 After 16-13 Setback in Washington

bucs
The Bucs played a much more competitive game vs the Redskins Sunday in DC, but were unable to take advantage of an early 10-0 lead, falling 16-13 to a Skins team that rallied for a win to put them at 2-2 on the season. The Buccaneers fall to 0-4 on the year, and once again were not much to talk about on offense.

The team, starting QB Josh Johnson, put up just 229 yards, were just 2-for-13 on third downs, and had 12 first downs. They went up 10-0 after Johnson hit Antonio Bryant for an 8-yard score in the first quarter, and then Mike Nugent kicked a 37-yard field goal after a 12-play drive to make it 10-0 Bucs.

The Bucs had a 10-0 lead at halftime, but the Skins came back with a Shaun Suisham 42-yard field goal to make it 10-3 in the third quarter, and then Chris Cooley pulled in a 17-yard score from Jason Campbell after a Bucs three-and-out to make it 10-9, and the game stayed that way when Suisham’s extra point was blocked.

After the Skins D held again for another three-and-out for Tampa Bay, Campbell went deep to Santana Moss for a 59-yard score to make it 16-10 after this time the extra point was good. Tampa Bay got to Redskins 8-yard line with 5:13 left, but coach Raheem Morris played it safe on fourth down, going for a field goal to make it 16-13.

The Bucs got the ball back with 1:52 left, but Clifton Smith fumbled the ball and the Skins recovered to seal the win. Campbell was 12-for-22 for 170 yards with two scores, and Clinton Portis put up 98 yards on 25 carries. Bucs starter Johnson was 13-for-22 for 106 yards with a TD.

The Buccaneers will be in Philly next week to play the Eagles.

    I absolutely can not stand watching the Buc’s this year… I live in Ohio so I spend 250 a year on the NFL ticket to watch this awful coaching staff try and win games… Come on a draw play with 50 seconds left in the game… good call Raheem (he may not of called the play but he hired the guy that did)… I was disgusted when they announced him as coach and even more so now after watching him…. We get rid of Jon Gruden and bring in a guy who has never even been even a coordinator in this league… He cuts a first ballad hall of famer who has one year left on his contract and was the face of this franchise for years… Ronde will be next… He fires the OC the third preseason game in… We had 30 million in salary cap room which he did absolutely NOTHING with… Sorry fellow fans but we are NEVER going to win anything with him as coach…. This guy is a joke… Every week I pray that he is fired… I hope he gets hit by a bus…
