Washington Redskins: Keys to the Game vs. Tampa Bay Buccaneers

The Redskins defense missed too many tackles last week; that can't be allowed to happen again.

On paper, this doesn't make for an entertaining matchup. However, if there's one thing the Washington Redskins have been this season, it's entertaining.

The Redskins are hemorrhaging points right now, but Robert Griffin III has been able to keep them in every game. In fact, Washington has the top-ranked offense in the league going into Week 4, racking up 33 points per game.

Tampa Bay on the other hand, is having trouble just getting to the red zone and is relying on its stout defense to carry the load.

It's going to be a different sort of game this week, but in order to keep pace with the NFC East, Washington needs to leave with a win.

All the questions from the preseason remain (can the offensive line protect Griffin? Can the defense cover? How often will the Redskins run the option?) so I’m not going to go over all of that again.

They’re still key to the game, yes, but there are certain factors within those overarching concerns that will decide this week’s clash.
