The Redskins got off to a fast start on Sunday--in more ways than one.
First, it was Clinton Portis who, on his first carry as a Redskin, burst for a 64-yard touchdown run, giving the Redskins an early 7-0 edge over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. The Redskins' defense got rolling early, recording four sacksm two turnovers and keeping the Bucs' offense out of the end zone.
It all added up to a 16-10 season-opening win for the now 1-0 Redskins.
More? It was head coach Joe Gibbs' first regular-season victory since returning to the Redskins last January.
It was the franchise's 500th regular-season win.
