Redskins-Buccaneers: How to watch and what to watch for
With half the schedule done, the Washington Redskins sit at 5-3, the best eight-game start to a season in the Jay Gruden era. Will they capitalize on a visit to a floundering Buccaneers team?
Here’s everything you need to know to watch Sunday’s Week 10 matchup.
Opponent: Tampa Bay Buccaneers (3-5)
Where: Raymond James Stadium, Tampa, Fla.
When: Sunday, Nov. 11, 1 p.m.
Radio: The Team 980
What to watch for: Ryan Fitzpatrick will remain Tampa Bay’s starting quarterback this week over the benched Jameis Winston ... DeSean Jackson is set to face the Redskins for the first time since leaving Washington after the 2016 season. Jackson has 28 catches for 626 yards and four touchdowns this year, along with one rushing touchdown ... Decimated on the offensive line like they were last year, the Redskins are likely to start Ty Nsekhe at left tackle, newcomer Jonathan Cooper at left guard, Chase Roullier at center and Tony Bergstrom at right guard. Morgan Moses might still play today, but if he can’t go, third-round pick Geron Christian Jr. will play right tackle for his first NFL start.

With Paul Richardson done for the year because of a shoulder injury, the Redskins need someone to be their new vertical threat on the outside. That job could go to Maurice Harris, @Matthew_Paras writes. https://t.co/HXz5FB6rrY WashTimes Sports (@WashTimesSports) November 7, 2018
