Through the first three games of the 2012 NFL season, your Washington Redskins have the No. 1-scoring offense in the entire league.
Credit certainly goes to the coaching staff for finding ways to utilize the offensive players’ talents — starting with rookie quarterback Robert Griffin III — and for putting points on the scoreboard.
Though the defense hasn’t yet reached the level of consistency it would like and become a top-10 NFL unit, there’s definitely people taking notice of the improved Redskins’ offense attack.

The Redskins have played the Buccaneers on 19 occasions in the regular season and the postseason combined, beginning in 1977. The 2012 matchup is the ninth game between Washington and Tampa Bay since the 2003 season.
The Buccaneers have played in Tampa since their inaugural season as an expansion franchise in 1976. The Buccaneers’ Raymond James Stadium opened in 1998 and has hosted two Super Bowls (XXXV and XLIII). Tampa Bay trains at its headquarters at “One Buccaneer Palace,” which is located about a mile from Raymond James Stadium.
The Redskins won the first-ever matchup between the two teams, 10-0, on Oct. 9, 1977, at Tampa Stadium in Tampa, Fla. In that game, the Redskins scored all 10 of their points in the first quarter – a Mark Moseley 44-yard field goal and a Mike Thomas six-yard touchdown run – before holding on the rest of the way for the victory. The Redskins’ defense held the Buccaneers to just 136 total yards, and had interceptions by Ken Houston and Joe Lavender.
