Redskins vs. Bucs


Byline: THE WASHINGTON TIMES

OFFENSE

REDSKINS: For three-plus quarters last week, the Redskins' offense looked lost. QB Patrick Ramsey made poor decisions and poor passes and was picked off twice. The backfield duo was held to 28 combined yards. And the wide receivers were held in check by the Eagles' depleted secondary. The Redskins turned things around the final three minutes, but they can't wait that long against the Bucs.

BUCS: Things have sure worked out fine for former Redskins QB Brad Johnson. Instead of battling with Jeff George for playing time, he won a Super Bowl with Tampa Bay and is the NFC's leading passer. Johnson may have to defer to his running game today, though, if WR Keyshawn Johnson joins Joe Jurevicius in street clothes on the sideline. Look for RB Michael Pittman to get plenty of carries.

No Edge

DEFENSE

REDSKINS: The much-maligned front four has done an admirable job so far. DT Bernard Holsey had 11/2 sacks last week. DE Bruce Smith got credit for the other half of Holsey's sack, leaving him two shy of Reggie White's career record. CB Champ Bailey continues to play with a banged-up shoulder and wrist. Most impressively, Bailey continues to play well.

BUCS: The NFL's latest greatest defense of all time sure didn't look so great when it blew a 21-point lead to Indianapolis Monday night. The consensus, though, was that the Bucs' stunning collapse was a fluke. Look for Jon Gruden's D to be back in form today. DT Warren Sapp, DE Simeon Rice and LB Derrick Brooks combine to form a defensive Bermuda Triangle for the Bucs.

Edge: Bucs

SPECIAL TEAMS

REDSKINS: What more can be said about John Hall? He leads the NFC in scoring, and he's been money from long range, converting six field goals from 40 yards and beyond. P Bryan Barker is doing a pretty good job dropping the ball inside the 20. One of these days Chad Morton is going to break free on a kickoff return. On punts, fans would settle for anything other than a fair catch.

BUCS: Flamboyant K Martin Gramatica hasn't had much reason to dance around the field this year - he's just 3-for-7 on field-goal attempts, and his one missed extra point (a block against Carolina) cost Tampa Bay a victory. Veteran P Tom Tupa, a potential target of the Redskins last offseason, is averaging a robust 46.
