By The Numbers: Week 4
Here are some of the numbers from the Redskins narrow, hard-fought 16-13 victory over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers:
277 - Total net yards for the Washington Redskins offense.
229 - Total net yards for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers offense.
170 - Yards passing for Jason Campbell, who was 12 of 22, with 2 touchdowns and 3 interceptions
106 - Yards passing for the Bucs Josh Johnson in his 1st start; the Redskin defense did a great job of not letting the young quarterback get going.
98 - Yards rushing for Clinton Portis, on 25 carries - a monumental effort by the tough, gritty, and injured back.
76 - Games in a row that tight end Chris Cooley has caught a pass.
65 - Yards receiving for Cooley, on 5 receptions; 3 of them came on 1 drive, including his 17-yard touchdown reception.
59 - Yard bomb from Campbell To Santana Moss; it was Campbell's absolute best pass of the season, and it was the turning point in the game.
47 - Seconds into the game, and the Bucs were up 7-0 after they were able to capitalize on a Campbell fumble on the game's 3rd play.
35 - Rushing plays run by the Redskins, compared to 25
20 - Yards rushing for Campbell, on 7 carries; his feet were more sure than his arm this week.
15 - Percent completion percentage for the Bucs offense on 3rd downs; the Redskin defense did a much better job of getting off the field when they had the opportunity.
8 - Tackles and 1 assist for Reed Doughty, who had a great game starting in place of Chris Horton
7 - Consecutive Redskin games have been decided by 7 points or less.
5 - Tackles, and 4 assists for London Fletcher, the tackling machine.
5- Tackles, and 2 assists for Brian Orakpo, who the Bucs tried to run at all day; the rookie held up well and put on probably his best linebacking game.
4 - Tackles and 2 assists for Rocky McIntosh, who had another terrific game.
4 - Turnovers for Campbell, and for the Redskins - 3 interceptions and 1 fumble.
3 - Interceptions for Buccaneer Aqib Talib, his first 3 of the season.
3 - Punts for Shaun Suisham, in place of an injured Hunter Smith; while they weren't good, and they weren't pretty - none of them were disastrous either.
2 - Missed field goals for Bucs kicker Mike Nugent; they proved very costly and Nugent might be out of a job.
2 - Touchbacks for Suisham, who is kicking off much better so far in 2009; 3 of his 4 kickoffs made it into the end zone.
1 - Interception for DeAngelo Hall - his 2nd of the season.
1- Tough win. It's easy to look for reasons why that statistic isn't enough, but in the end, it is.
