The offense started out with a bang as Pat White connected with Dez Briscoe for a 66 yard gain:

Evan Royster was fighting hard early to earn a roster spot, and began with a touchdown run to give the Skins a 7-0 lead:

But Royster wasn't done yet, and minutes later produced a 36-yard rush up the gut:

Not to be outdone, in the closing seconds of the first quarter Chris Thompson took a Bucs punt 69 yards to the house to give the Redskins a 17-0 lead:

The Bucs got on the board in the second when Pat White was picked off by fellow Mountaineer Najee Goode who returned 37 yards for the touchdown:

The Redskins rookies continued to shine as David Amerson picked off Mike Glennon late in the second and picked up 35 yards on the return:

Pat white showed his mobility with a 7 yard touchdown run as the half came to a close:



With a 27-6 lead at the half, Redskins fans loved what they were seeing so far:
