Halftime Report: Buccaneers vs. Redskins

The Bucs lead the Redskins at halftime of their Week 7 matchup in Washington.


After a dominant first half, the Buccaneers lead the Redskins, 24-7, in Washington. The Bucs have impressed on both sides of the ball, scoring once on defense and earning points on all but two of their offensive possessions.

Jameis Winston enters halftime having completed 10 of 14 passes for 156 yards and 2 touchdowns. Winston tossed a 40-yard bomb to Mike Evans on the Bucs' opening drive before finding Donteea Dye for his second score in the second quarter.

Dye, an undrafted rookie out of Division 3 Heidleberg University in Ohio, is one of two under-the-radar Bucs to have found the end zone in the first half. Defensive end Howard Jones recovered a fumble and brought it 43 yards for a score. The fumble was forced by Jacquies Smith, who stripped Kirk Cousins while recording the Bucs' only sack of the first half.

Doug Martin and Charles Sims have rushed for a combined 108 yards, with both runners on pace for 100-yard games. Martin has reached the century mark in each of his previous two outings. 

Lavonte David leads the team in tackles with five while Clinton McDonald and Chris Conte both have four.

Connor Barth has yet to miss a field goal since re-joining the Buccaneers earlier this season. He connected on his only field goal attempt and is a perfect, three-for-three on extra points.

The Buccaneers are set to receive at the start of the second half.
