What We Learned In The Washington Redskins Loss To The Tampa Bay Buccaneers

Ick.

That's all I can say. Ick. On an ugly, cold day in December, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers came to a nearly empty FedEx Field to play the rapidly tail spinning Washington Redskins.

To be honest, this was probably the Redskins' last chance to get a win before the season eventually ends.

As has become customary in Redskins Nation, a series of miscues iced the game for the upstart Bucs, as with the loss by Green Bay Packers, the Bucs are still in the race for a wildcard slot in the playoffs.

The Redskins ever slim playoff hopes (or playoff wishful thinking) disappear with this loss. Once more, I am not upset as I have been at other times. My reaction was simple—"Typical".

It was not as though the Redskins embarrassed themselves. They played fairly good football, and Ryan Torain set an NFL record.

There's still positives to go along with the negatives.

But losses like this are even worse. There are a few reasons why the Redskins could've won this game. There's also a few reasons they should've won.

With that in mind, let's take a look at what we learned in the Redskins' loss the Buccaneers.
