Preseason or not, Mack Brown had himself a game Wednesday night.
Just how good was he? He finished with 149 rushing yards and a touchdown, whereas the Buccaneers as a team had 46 yards on the ground total and zero rushing scores.
His performance certainly gained the attention of his teammates, including those who did not travel with the team and watched comfortably on their sofas.
Among those at home was linebacker Mason Foster, who thought Brown was making it look a little too easy out there.

Defensive lineman Chris Baker was certainly pumped up too.

Perhaps most impressive of Brown’s night was his 60-yard touchdown run, especially considering the sloppy conditions from the tropical storm weather.
Guard Spencer Long and safety David Bruton Jr. also chimed in on the performance:

And last but certainly not least, wide receiver DeSean Jackson and fellow running back Chris Thompson also gave the youngster some props.

A total of 26 Redskins did not travel to Tampa Bay for the team’s final preseason game, which meant more than usual members of the burgundy and gold taking in the game watching at home on TV.
Brown certainly put on a show for them, and his performance helped the Redskins put down the Bucs, 20-13, in the final tune up before Week 1.
