WAS-TB: Third Quarter Thoughts

Posted by Andrew Walker on August 29, 2012 – 9:36 pm

The third quarter didn’t start off so well for quarterback Kirk Cousins and the Washington Redskins’ offense.

Cousins was picked off on the Redskins’ first drive of the second half, giving the ball to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers at their own 29-yard line.

But the Redskins’ defense continued its dominance from that point.

On that next drive for the Buccaneers, rookie cornerback Richard Crawford nabbed his second interception of the preseason, giving the ball right back to Cousins and the offense.

A 10-yard run by Roy Helu Jr., a 47-yard bomb to Brandon Banks and a 15-yard touchdown run by Helu Jr. later, and the Redskins offense was cookin’ again.

At the end of the third quarter, the Redskins remain in front of the Buccaneers by a score of 30-3.
A few minutes after that interception, Crawford was injured after being smacked into by a Tampa Bay offensive lineman attempting to push the pile forward. Crawford was able to walk off the field, however.

On that same drive for the Buccaneers, Tampa Bay kicker Kai Forbath got the away team on the scoreboard for the first time all game with a 43-yard field goal.

Cousins’ night was done from that point. He ended up completing 15-of-27 for 222 yards.

In came quarterback Jonathan Crompton for the Redskins, who led a nice first drive that saw several big runs. Roy Helu Jr. had a couple nice runs — including a six-yard touchdown run — while Brandon Banks ran for 43 yards on an end-around play.

The touchdown was Helu Jr.’s second of the quarter and, after the extra point, extended the Redskins’ lead to 30-3.

You can’t help but come away from the third quarter impressed by the all-around effort by the Redskins tonight. Throw out the opponent and which preseason game it is or who’s playing for either team — this game has been very one-sided.

There’s several men out there fighting for a spot on the 53-man roster, which must be determined by Friday. Tonight’s game has proven that there are some very, very tough choices for Redskins head coach Mike Shanahan and the rest of his staff.

CHIME IN: Who has stood out to you for the Redskins in tonight’s game? Feel free to comment below.
