Buccaneers Vs. Redskins Score: Brandon Banks Punt Return Gives Washington 14-0 Lead

Brandon Banks may have cemented his status on the Redskins' roster in one fell swoop during the Redskins' preseason finale against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. The Redskins' kickoff return specialist made it happen on a punt return, running one back 95 yards to give the Redskins a 14-0 lead.

Banks was pushed back by a really nice punt, but elected to return it anyway. He paused for a second, then shot up the middle through a pack of players. He eventually easily outran the punter and had a wide open lane to the end zone.

On the replay, it looked like Banks may have dropped the ball just before reaching the end zone, which would have given the ball back to Tampa Bay. The Redskins' announcers were beside themselves and talked about what a horrible mistake Banks made. Then, the play got upheld, and they looked silly.
