Bucs what they're saying; by the numbers

What they're saying

@TomWJones Would hate to be a wide receiver trying to make the team based on this game.

@TKras Ugly football displayed by the #Bucs tonight. In every aspect so far. Yikes

@FunkyWhiteGuy Are we gonna #SiegetheDay from Hermine?

@PaulFox13 Miserable weather for #Bucs game, but nothing compares to Monsoon Game at the Old Tampa Stadium, December 16, 1979

@CBrueyWFTV I always loved playing football in torrential downpours as a kid. It's not very entertaining during week 4 of the @NFL preseason

@CKurtzman Devin Hester its Jason Licht

@jclark3355 This team not built for rain

By the numbers

-3 Bucs total yards during the first quarter.

-1 First-quarter passing yards by QB Mike Glennon, including a sack for a loss of 15 yards.

215 Total passing yards for Glennon this preseason. He was 21-of-45 with one touchdown and one interception.

12 Combined first-half passing yards by Glennon and Ryan Griffin.

4 First-half completions in seven attempts by Griffin for a total of 34 yards.

13 Yards, the longest completions for Griffin in the first half, which he did twice. He connected with WRs Kenny Bell and Evan Spencer.

2 First downs for the Bucs in the first half; one was by a penalty.

25/22 Total plays/total yards by the Bucs in the first half.

5/0 First-half fumbles/fumbles lost by the Bucs on a wet night.

0/0 First-half fumbles/fumbles lost by Washington.

4 Sacks this preseason by Bucs DE Jacquies Smith.

5/4 Total tackles/solo tackles by Bucs SS Ryan Smith before leaving in the second quarter with a hand injury.

6 First-quarter passing yards by Washington third-string QB Nate Sudfeld.

50 Average yards for Bucs' Bryan Anger on his first five punts. Included was a long of 53 yards.

60 Yards on Washington RB Mack Brown's second-quarter touchdown run.

302 Total yards for the Bucs during the first quarter per the new scoreboard in the corner of Raymond James. Still some bugs to be worked out.

108.5 Jameis Winston's QB rating in three preseason games. He completed 26 of 44 passes for 384 yards, four touchdowns, one interception.

47 Yards, Winston's longest pass completion in the preseason, which went to WR Mike Evans against the Browns.
