The Washington Redskins will look to improve to 4-6 against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, who are continuing to struggle with a 1-8 record.
The Washington Redskins are returning from their bye week, and they are hoping to dig themselves out of a hole as they possess a 3-6 record. They have a prime opportunity to stay in contention in the NFC East as they face the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
The Redskins entered the bye week with a 29-26 loss to the Minnesota Vikings, and quarterback Robert Griffin III had an underwhelming performance. Running back Alfred Morris looked great though as he ran for 92 yards and two touchdowns.
Wide receiver DeSean Jackson also continued to burn opposing defenses with four receptions for 120 yards and a touchdown.
Meanwhile, the Buccaneers fell to 1-8 with their loss to the Atlanta Falcons. Josh McCown went back to being the starting quarterback and threw for 301 yards with two touchdowns and two interceptions on 27-of-43 passing.
Wide receiver Mike Evans caught seven passes for 125 yards and a touchdown, but the running game looked terrible as McCown led the Buccaneers in rushing with 39 yards.
Rookie Charles Sims will look to overtake Bobby Rainey for carries before Doug Martin returns from an ankle injury.
The Redskins offense will be overwhelming for a Buccaneers defense that has underachieved greatly this season.
Prediction: Redskins 30, Buccaneers 20
