WASHINGTON (CBSDC) - The Redskins defeated the Tampa Bay Buccaneers 30-12 Thursday night, tying a bow around Washington’s first perfect preseason since 1985.

Washington, led by a hungry Pat White, put up 27 points in the first half, before kicker Kai Forbath tacked on a field goal for insurance in the third, giving them a 30-9 lead heading into the final quarter of play.

They’d hold pat at 30, giving up another field goal in the fourth to wrap up Washington’s flawless preseason.

With decisive wins against the Titans, Steelers, Bills and Bucs, the stage is now set for the Redskins and an explosive season-opener against the Eagles on Monday Night Football.

And no one could be happier than Robert Griffin III, who’s slated to start in week one, as reported by ESPN’s Adam Schefter earlier in the week, after a more than seven-month rehab from ACL surgery.

He was cleared to play by Dr. James Andrews on Thursday.
