Redskins vs. Buccaneers Social Rewind

Posted Aug 28, 2014

The fourth preseason game is in the books. See how Twitter called the game as Buccaneers second- and third-stringers make the most of their final game to impress and make the 53-man roster.

The fourth preseason game is always a little different, with few, if any, starters and backups in the spotlight as they vie for their place on the 53-man roster. So, we’ll change up Social Rewind a bit this week, giving you the scoring plays, but also highlighting the biggest plays and individual player callouts as called by the Twitter analysts for the players fighting to make the team. As the clock ticked down to kickoff, each team posted their starting lineups for the day. Backups would fil most every spot for each team as they fought for their place on the depth chart. The Bucs offense took the field first, putting together two nice first downs, led by quarterback Mike Glennon, however, they were forced to punt. Tandy made a case as a special teamer in coverage. Greg Auman and Scott Smith give their takes: With the defense on the field, Danny Lansanah put up his first big play and would give plenty more as the night went on. The Bucs defense would force a quick punt as well. Many of the second-string starters would only see that initial drive. Matt Baker calls four replacement players as the Bucs offense takes the field again. As would be the case for much of the game, the teams went back and forth, trading punts and fighting for field position. With the D back on the field, Lansanah again made the stat sheet along with Anthony Gaitor on a big stop. Two possessions later and we have our first points of the game on a Washington field goal. :40 left in first quarter. On the next play from scrimmage, Mike Kafka lost hold of the ball, resulting in a turnover and great field position for Washington. On the second play of the second quarter, the Redskins would find the end zone. Tom Krasniqi gives the scoring play: On the next possession, the Bucs would be forced to punt, but saw nice play from rookie guard Kadeem Edwards. With Washington threatening to score, a young Buccaneer made a name for himself, creating the first Bucs turnover of the game. Scott Smith and WDAE give their takes. After more traded possessions, the clock was down to :18 seconds in the half, with the Redskins on the six. Once again, Danny Lansanah makes a crucial play along with Nate Askew. The teams would go into halftime with Washington up 10-0. Scott Smith chimes in again with the call of the game’s first sack by Scott Solomon. In the third, the Bucs would get on the board with a solid drive featuring two Jeff Demps rushes for 10 yards, two passes from Kafka to Louis Murphy and three points. Here’s how Twitter highlighted the drive. The Redskins answered with a quick strike, just two plays into the next possession. 17-3 Washington. The Buccaneers offense was instantly back to work, starting a drive with two big plays by Demps, as called by Tampa Bay Times’ Matt Baker. The drive went on, this time moving with hookups between Kafka and Chris Owusu. Pewter Report, well, reports: And the drive would end with a nifty catch-and-run from Solomon Patton. The Tampa Bay Buccaneers Twitter account and senior writer spread the news: Into the fourth quarter, the Redskins would string together a solid drive, entering Bucs red zone. The Bucs held and the field goal attempt flew wide right. 17-10 Washington with 12:21 left. Dane Fletcher grabs the attention of Luke Easterling on the drive, as well. The Buccaneers would punt, and the Redskins would drive again, putting the game away on the backs of RBs Lache Seastrunk and Silas Redd. Throughout the night, a number of Buccaneers caught the attention of local writers and fans for their performance on the field, but that is how the game would end. We’ll see you all in nine days back inside Raymond James Stadium for the home opener against the Carolina Panthers. And, Redskins, we’ll see you in November.
