At Tampa Bay
1:00 p.m. ET
Key Coaching Decision #1: (WAS ball, leading 16-3 / second-and-7, WAS 29 / 2:29 Q4)
• After a two-yard run, Adrian Peterson is tackled and fumbles as he hits the ground. Peterson is ruled down, but Tampa Bay head coach Dirk Koetter challenges the play, thinking the Bucs recovered the fumble. But without having any timeouts left, this is an unsportsmanlike conduct penalty. This penalty did not have any affect on the game, but as a head coach this is a mistake that should not happen.
• The Bucs had over 500 yards of offense but could only muster a field goal. They had the advantage in time of possession and were able to run 12 plays more than Washington. The difference was that the Redskins were able to force four turnovers, including three in the red zone.
• The Redskins only had 286 total yards of offense and Alex Smith only threw for 170 yards, but the offense played a clean game and did just enough to get a key road win. Washington has a two-game lead in the NFC East, which is a big deal considering the rest of the division seems to be falling apart.
