Buccaneers quick hits

By Compiled by Times staff writer

© St. Petersburg Times, published October 1, 2000


Bucs WR Jacquez Green leads the NFL with a 27.5 yards per catch average (11 receptions for 302 yards) and is on pace to become the club's first 1,000-yard receiver since Mark Carrier in 1989.

Bucs QB Shaun King had gone 85 passing attempts without an interception before his 11th pass Sunday against the Jets was tipped and picked off.

Bucs lead the all-time series 5-4. Tampa Bay had won four straight meetings before Washington's 20-16 victory during the "98 season snapped that streak. The Bucs won 14-13 in the NFC Divisional playoff game last year at Raymond James Stadium.

The Bucs are averaging 133.8 yards per game behind Mike Alstott and Warrick Dunn.

The Redskins completed three passes of more than 45 yards last week against the Giants. The Bucs have allowed just one completion of more than 45 yards -- a 50-yarder by Detroit's Germane Crowell on a Hail Mary pass.

Skins QB Brad Johnson has faced the Bucs six times, all as a member of the Vikings, and has a 94.6 quarterback rating.
