Of course the Redskins’ defense set the tone as the fourth quarter of tonight’s game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers got underway.
Linebacker Bryan Kehl continued his strong preseason with an interception — the Redskins’ third pick of the game — at the Bucs’ 6-yard line, and returned it 43 yards.
That play was just the icing on the cake of a strong defensive effort by the Redskins that saw three interceptions and five sacks in the Redskins’ 30-3 win, as the team finishes the 2012 preseason with a 3-1 record for the second straight year.
Here’s some highlights for the Redskins:
- The Washington defense had five sacks — Delvin Johnson, Darrion Scott, Bryan Kehl, Marlon Favorite and Kedric Golston earned those.
- The Redskins’ secondary had three interceptions — rookies Richard Crawford and Jordan Bernstine and Kehl had those picks.
- Roy Helu Jr. rushed the ball 15 times for 90 yards and two touchdowns.
- Quarterback Kirk Cousins completed 15-of-27 passes for 222 yards. He was picked off once.
Again, the Redskins coaching staff has some tough decisions to whittle the roster down from 75 to 53 players by Friday.
