The Bucs lead the Redskins 24-7 at halftime in what was one of the most complete performances under Lovie Smith.

Some first half observations.

--The two-headed rushing attack is alive and working. Doug Martin rushed 8 times for 57 yards, Charles Sims gained 51 yards on nine carries. That helped the offense score on each of their first three possessions.

--Jameis Winston is not playing like a rookie QB. The No. 1 overall pick went 10 of 14 passing for 156 yards and two touchdowns, including the first of his career by WR Donteaa  Dye.

--Welcome back Mike Evans. Must be something about playing at Fed Ex Field, but Evans got started early with a 40-yard TD pass from Winston. He has three catches for 74 yards.

--The defense produced another touchdown for the second straight week. Again, Jacquies Smith was a factor. He stripped Redskins QB Kirk Cousins and rookie Howard Jones picked it up and ran it into the end zone for a touchdown.

--The Bucs are having a little trouble with the bootlegs and mis-directions by Cousins, who has used them to throw effectively and rushed for a touchdown.
