Quarterback—A–: A tipped interception was the only back mark on Taylor Heinicke's remarkable night.
Running backs—D: Heinicke personally outrushed Antonio Gibson and J.D. McKissic on the night.
Receivers—B–: Drops by Cam Sims and Steven Sims Jr. were costly on a night when Washington gave the Bucs a scare.
Offensive line—B+: This group kept Heinicke relatively clean until the fourth quarter.
Defensive line—C–: After some early pressure, this heralded group rarely deterred Tom Brady's pass attempts.
Linebackers—C: The Buccaneers ran effectively enough to win and tight end Cameron Brate was big factor.
Secondary—C: The Bucs got open when they needed to, especially on their final scoring drive.
Special teams—B–: Punt coverage and punt returns are an issue that must be addressed next season.
Coaching—B: Scott Turner did a nice job of tailoring his game plan to Heinicke's strengths on short notice.
