With the second-quarter clock past the two-minute warning, Sapp sacked QB Patrick Ramsey from behind on third-and-14, apparently ending Washington’s drive on the far side of midfield.
However, DE Greg Spires hit Ramsey with his helmet as the quarterback landed and the yellow hankies shot out instantly.
Coming in, the Bucs were hobbled on offense, with FB Mike Alstott and TE Rickey Dudley out for the season, WR Joe Jurevicius sidelined for six weeks or so and WR Karl Williams, WR Keyshawn Johnson and RB Aaron Stecker all nursing injuries.
The result was a wide variety of formations and personnel groupings that relied more heavily on not just Yoder and Heller but also FB Jameel Cook (three catches for 29 yards) and RB Thomas Jones (44 combined rushing and receiving yards).
Speaking of road dominance, the Buccaneers have now won five consecutive away games, a franchise record dating back to last December. The proud Buccaneer defense, which had slipped out of the league’s top spot after Monday’s shootout with the Colts, wanted to prove that its prime-time meltdown was a fluke.Sapp got the other two sacks, his first two of the season and an emphatic answer for a midweek challenge from Washington LB La Var Arrington.On offense, the Bucs’ four-touchdown afternoon (a fifth score came courtesy of yet another Derrick Brooks interception return) was led by the heretofore little-known tight end pair of Todd Yoder and Will Heller.The Redskins also scored first in the second half, again thanks to a Buccaneer penalty.This time, Rice’s third sack of the game had helped force a punt from Tampa Bay’s 38, but Smith lined up offside and, with five less yards to the goal posts, Washington elected to go for three.
The Bucs appeared to still be suffering from a Monday night hangover, as they were out-gained 111 yards to five.
