For the third consecutive season, the Washington Redskins will close their preseason slate with a tilt against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
The last two have been Redskins victory to include a 24-22 victory in 2011 where the burgundy and gold orchestrated their first game-winning drive of the season in the waning minutes and a 30-3 walloping last season where Kirk Cousins picked apart the Buccaneers defense and Roy Helu Jr. pounded his way to pay dirt twice.
In total, the Redskins and Buccaneers have played each other 20 different times in the regular season and postseason, the most recent being this 24-22 victory at Raymond James Stadium in Week 4.
You hear that booming in the background? No, no that isn’t the famed stadium pirate ship letting out one of his cushy footballs after a Buccaneers touchdown. That’s the sound of Redskins fans rejoicing after an always nail-biting, down to the wire victory over the Buccaneers.
In the last eight regular and postseason battles between the two NFC foes, the final score has seen a margin of victory no higher than seven.
Of course Throwback Thursday wouldn’t seem right without this unearthed gem from 2004:
