Washington Redskins (1-2) at Tampa Bay Buccaneers (1-2)
The Buccaneers are one of the few teams I’ve had as underrated before the season that’s actually become overrated 3 weeks into it. The Buccaneers have hung tough, on the scoreboard, with the Giants and Cowboys and beat the Panthers, but they’re not playing that well. They rank dead last in the league in yards per play differential, with a -2.0. No other team has one worse than -1.0. They’ve had a tough schedule, but they’ve looked completely inept on both sides of the ball. They’re winning the turnover battle (+4), but you can’t rely on that going forward. They’ve also lost starting defensive end Adrian Clayborn for the season.
Speaking of yards per play differential, the Redskins are that team with the -1.0, ranking 31st only ahead of Tampa Bay. Robert Griffin is the real deal, but whatever little help he had to begin with is getting hurt. Brian Orakpo’s and Adam Carriker’s absence on defense has led to them getting torched de...
BEST OF MAXIM
Washington, DC. One of the bigger surprises two weeks into the NFL season has to be the transformation that the Washington Redskins have seemed to go through. Gone are the second string QB’s who masqueraded as starters in Washington for so many years, as the second overall pick from Baylor is now putting on quite a show. Robert Griffin III has been sensational so far, as...
There is no doubt that Warren Sapp and John Lynch played huge roles in the success of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Today, their careers have been acknowledged by being nominated for 2013′s Pro Football Hall of Fame.
The list, which contains 127 nominees, also includes three other members from that memorable Super Bowl run for the Bucs: Lomas Brown, Keyshawn Johnson and Keenan McCardell...
Captain Fear from the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and, more importantly, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers cheerleaders have produced their own Gangnam Style video. Somewhere the Oregon Duck is rolling his eyes and quacking about how he did this a month ago, when Gangnam Style didn’t get on everybody’s nerves.

The original Gangnam Style video by Korean rapper Psy is not new, having come out in July, but in the last three weeks it has gone absolutely viral, reaching over 292 Million views. It is easily one of the most watched YouTube videos of all-time, and with 2.8+ Million likes, it is the most liked video ever.Just like the song “Call Me Maybe,” parody videos have already started...

The Washington Redskins have been without WR Pierre Garcon since halftime of Week one. Against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Sunday, the club will make a decision regarding whether or not Garcon can play at game time. Garcon has been dealing with a foot injury and has missed the last two contests for the Redskins. Multiple reports this week have suggested that Garcon is close to returning...
According to Grant Paulsen of 106.7 The Fan in D.C., Washington Redskins wide receiver Pierre Garcon (foot) was limited in today’s practice along with safety Brandon Meriweather (knee), Evan Royster (knee) and Brandon Banks (hip).
The Redskins could use Garcon back this week as they get ready to face off against a pretty good Buccaneers team.

Redskins receiver Pierre Garcon (foot) was limited in Thursday's practice.Fantasy Spin:Garcon missed the last two games with a foot injury and his status is uncertain for Week 4. Leonard Hankerson will start again if Garcon is out.
Robert Griffin III (top 3 fantasy QB right now) has been quite the surprise through the first three weeks of the NFL season, but it wasn’t as if we thought he would become a complete bust.
The talent is there after giving Baylor their first ever Heisman winner in program history, but the Redskins would have a tough time competing in the Big 12 these days with all of their unknowns...
