After Ricky Reynolds returned a blocked punt for the score, it was all Washington as the Redskins scored 29 unanswered points to take control of the game.

A fourth quarter Buc comeback made it closer than it really was, but the Bucs' rushing total of just one yard on 10 carries said it all.

Mark Carrier had another big game as he continued his emergence into one of the best receivers in the NFL.
