10 Things We Think We Learned - Buccaneers-Skins

The Bucs found a way to lose another heart breaker to an NFC East foe. What did we learn from the disappointing outcome?


Redskins Late Comeback One-Ups Buccaneers

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers and Washington Redskins fought a close game, but the Bucs couldn't come up with the win. In an up-and-down game, many things went right, but a few more things went wrong to give Washington the game.

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers managed a heroic comeback - and then gave it all away again. Digging a 21-3 hole, they turned that around and took the lead with under two minutes remaining. But some 55 yards later, Billy Cundiff lined up for his fourth field goal try of the game. He had missed his previous three attempts, so Bucs fans were hopeful that he'd miss this one.

In the end, though, the Bucs lost. This is what that loss looked like:

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers are attempting a comeback, and they've managed to cut the Redskins' lead to one score. It's now 21-13, and here's how it happened. First, Josh Freeman found one of his receivers deep down the field as Mike Williams ran away from the defense.

That's the Josh Freeman we're all waiting to see, but don't see nearly enough - too often it's indecisive, inaccurate, bad Freeman. He knows where he's going, drops back, and immediately throws it. Easy delivery, easy catch, easy run.

He followed that up with a quick strike to Vincent Jackson for the touchdown, putting the Bucs back in one-score territory. This is the other aspect of good Freeman: powerful arm, squeezing it in between defenders, and Vincent Jackson does what he does: catch balls for touchdown.

One Billy Cundiff missed field goal later, and the Bucs have the ball and are fixing to score again. Go Bucs!


Lavonte David and Eric Wright Leave With Injuries

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers are getting crushed, and to make matters worse, they're now losing key players to injuries. Rookie linebacker has been very important to this team's defense, yet is now on the sideline getting his hand looked at. He was hit by some friendly fire from Mark Barron.

Meanwhile, cornerback Eric Wright got a knee to the helmet from a teammate on the very next play, and walked off the field under his own power, and then headed to the locker room. . It's not clear whether either player will return to the game.
