We typically do these "Before Further Review" pieces with the intention of actually reviewing the game. However, I don't think anyone is interested in re-watching a preseason finale. Especially considering the conditions and circumstances it was played under Wednesday night. Either way, a game was played and the Washington Redskins came away with the victory over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Although it's hard to evaluate players in the conditions the game was played in, we'll try our best below. Look for more roster talk on Breaking Burgundy before rosters get trimmed to 53 by Saturday.:
* Both RBs Mack Brown and Robert Kelley had big nights. Brown had over 100 yards rushing, while Kelley ran for 99 yards. Considering the weather, both players showed good cutting ability and uphill burst. Brown, of course, had a super impressive 60-yard touchdown run that really put his burst on display. The Redskins may be forced to keep both considering the lack of stability at the position.
* No Kirk Cousins, no Colt McCoy meant lots of Nate Sudfeld. The rookie quarterback hadn't played since the second preseason game and had one less day to prepare for this game against the Buccaneers. Not to mention, the weather in Tampa was nasty. Yes, setting up some excuses because Sudfeld had his struggles. However, it's hard to truly knock him considering those circumstances. Sudfeld decided to wear two gloves with the rain Wednesday night, which appeared to be a last minute decision. He struggled with accuracy, but did have a very nice TD fade to Rashad Ross. I don't think you can draw any conclusions from his play in this game.
* Rookie CB Kendall Fuller had a nice play downfield fighting through the hands of the receiver for a pas break up. Fuller did a good job putting himself in position to make a play on the ball. However, he still needs to break the habit of not turning his head around downfield. That could've been an interception. Fuller came back on the next drive and sniffed down a bootleg pass. I really like his potential. He will be good.
