(BUCCANEERS.COM) – The Buccaneers won the toss and elected to receive, putting quarterback Tom Brady and the Bucs offense on the field to start.
The first play of the game would end up going for negative yards as tight end O.J. Howard was called for a false start. It put the Bucs behind the chains enough that they wouldn’t recover, going three and out on their first drive.
The Bucs, unexpectedly without starting cornerback Richard Sherman, who was hurt in pregame warmups, allowed Washington to get down the field and into Buccaneer territory.
A big third-down pass breakup by safety Jordan Whitehead meant Washington had to end up settling for a 46-yard field goal but it gave them a 3-0 lead with 9:57 left in the first.
On the Bucs’ next possession, Brady was an interception on second down and Washington would take back over on the Tampa Bay 28. Despite the sudden change, the defense was able to stand up behind an eight-yard tackle for loss by safety Antoine Winfield Jr. that ended up forcing the Football Team to settle for another field goal. Washington took a 6-0 lead with 5:56 left in the first quarter.
After recording their first, first-down of the game, Brady was intercepted again on the next drive, relinquishing the ball at midfield and though the ball was returned 19 yards, a taunting penalty backed the Washington Football Team up to the Bucs’ 46.
