Redskins vs. Buccaneers:The Washington Redskins prepare for their fourth preseason game in 2014 as they go up against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. The Redskins enter the game 2-1 having lost to the Baltimore Ravens 23-17 on Saturday night after winning their first two.
The Buccaneers enter the game 1-2 in the preseason, having beaten the Buffalo Bills last week 24-13. Neither team will play most of their starters but the Buccaneers backup quarterback Mike Glennon was a starter last season and he played reasonably well as a rookie. So he should give the Redskins reserves a good challenge.
The Redskins will counter Glennon with Kirk Cousins at quarterback as starter Robert Griffin III will not play. Cousins has performed well this preseason and this has caused some to believe he should be the Redskins starter at quarterback. I don’t think Cousins will become the starter but a good performance could enhance his trade value.
There may be other teams around the league looking to add a guy like Kirk Cousins as a possible starter. And the Redskins still have some spots on the roster open, so players will be fighting hard to try to make the team. Redskins vs. Buccaneers
