Banged-up Redskins find beauty in ugly road win in Tampa

Josh Norman slams Washington fans after road win: 'We can play all the games on the road if you ask me'

The move comes a day after the fifth-year pro missed two field goals in the woeful 16-3 loss to the Washington Redskins.

For the fourth straight week the Redskins failed to surpass the 20-point mark.

Smith was an efficient 19 of 27 for 178 yards.

It marked the first time this season that the Redskins won a game in which Peterson rushed for less than 90 yards.

The Bucs (3-6) have dropped six of seven games following a 2-0 start, with Fitzpatrick starting four of the losses after leading the team to surprising victories over New Orleans and Philadelphia while Jameis Winston was serving a suspension for violating the NFL's personal conduct policy.

Even though they're now leading the NFC East, Norman said he doesn't have high hopes for when they host the Houston Texans on Sunday.

Against the Buccaneers, the Redskins will have three players along their offensive line who didn't start in Week 1. "We're getting down there fairly easily. They (Tampa Bay) had great ball control, they were moving up and down the field".

The Redskins can't count on that same kind of cooperation from the Texans.

Trump under pressure from Melania to fire top aide
With the mid-term elections now in the rear-view mirror, the situation in the Trump White House appears to be coming to a head. The Wall Street Journal initially reported that Ricardel had been fired and escorted from White House grounds.

"We've got to play better football more consistently across the board", the coach added. "I wish we were scoring touchdowns and field goals in the red zone, obviously", Evans said.

"We just weren't good enough as a team". They're not really behind us.

Washington's offense was aided greatly by the kicking game on Sunday.

Dustin Hopkins was dead-eye for the 'Skins, nailing all three of his field goal attempts, the longest coming from 43-yards out.

"Alex did a great job of not making any negative plays", Gruden said.

Ryan Fitzpatrick turnovers: Corner Josh Norman was looking forward to this matchup because he knew Fitzpatrick would give him a chance to intercept a pass. "To move the ball that way and just come up with three points?" They sit back in their seat and they boo.

-T Trent Williams (thumb) is not expected to return this week.

"I didn't really notice much of a difference, maybe the cadence of his voice instead of Todd's", Fitzpatrick said. "He's still got the big old cast on there". Finally, WE Jamison Crowder will miss again this week. "I think he's probably going to get another MRI just to make sure everything is on track as far as the healing process is concerned", Gruden said.
