Despite not bringing any of their starters, the Washington Redskins beat the Tampa Bay Buccaneers 20-13 on a rainy night in Tampa thanks to Tropical Storm Hermine. Washington left 26 players, including all 22 starters, behind but controlled the entire game. The Redskins running backs had a terrific night. Mack Brown had 149 yards on 19 carries, while Robert Kelley had 99 yards on 16 carries.
Defensively, Dashazor Everett made his case for one of Washington's final roster spots with a team-leading 9 tackles (7 solo) and a sensational pass breakup, knocking the ball in the air for a Duke Ihenacho interception. The Bucs offense struggled all night, unable to get a good grip on the ball and averaging just 2.2 yards per carry on the ground.
Both teams now prepare for final roster cuts and their respective season openers next week.
