STREAKS, STATS AND NOTES - When these teams met last season, Bucs WR Mike Evans, then a rookie, became youngest player in NFL history to turn in 200-yard receiving game, with seven catches for 209 yards and two touchdowns. ... No. 1 overall draft pick Jameis Winston has thrown for at least 200 yards and one TD in each of his five NFL starts. Winston also has seven INTs. ... Bucs have zero TDs in first quarter, getting outscored 38-9 in that period. ... Redskins' problem has been third quarter: They've been outscored 46-3 in 15 minutes right after halftime. ... In Washington's two victories, QB Kirk Cousins has not thrown interception. In team's four losses, he's been picked off twice each game. ... Redskins WR Jamison Crowder has 27 catches, 244 yards receiving, both tops among NFC rookies. ... After RBs Albert Morris and Matt Jones each had 100-yard game in Weeks 1 and 2, putting team at top of NFL in rushing, ground game has slowed; Washington gained only 34 yards against Jets last week and now ranks in middle of league. ... Fantasy Tip: If Redskins TE Jordan Reed returns after missing time with concussion, odds are Cousins will be looking his way plenty, especially considering that WR Pierre Garcon had zero targets last week; Bucs WR Evans could find plenty of space again against Redskins' banged-up secondary.
