For the first time this season, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers are actually favored to win on Sunday.

The Bucs are a 2.5-point favorite over the Washington Redskins. Both teams come into Raymond James Stadium with 1-2 records.

Here's how the teams compare.

OFFENSE

Quarterback: Josh Freeman vs. Robert Griffin III.

Common sense says that if you can stop Cam Newton, you can stop Robert Griffin III. Like Newton was last year in Charlotte, Griffin is the talk of the town in D.C. He's a dynamic playmaker who can do it all. The worry is that Griffin is absorbing too many hits. He was sacked six times last week by the Bengals.

Freeman is still trying to get comfortable with Mike Sullivan/Greg Schiano offense. It hasn't been very imaginative. He hasn't run for any meaningful yards and he looks unsure in the pocket.

Advantage: Push

Running backs: Doug Martin, LeGarrette Blount, Erik Lorig vs. Al Morris, Evan Royster, Darrel Young.

Advantage: Tampa Bay

Receivers: Vincent Jackson, Mike Williams, Dallas Clark, Arrelious Benn vs. Pierre Garcon, Josh Morgan, Santana Moss, Fred Davis.

Garcon and Griffin clicked in the first game, but Garcon has been hurt. He's questionable for Sunday.

The Buccaneers haven't been able to crank up the passing game, but with teams bunching the box to stop the run, it's an option they'll have to use to win football games.

Advantage: Tampa Bay

Offensive line: Donald Penn (LT), Carl Nicks (LG), Jeremy Zuttah (C), Ted Larsen (RG), Demar Dotson (RT) vs. Trent Williams (LT), Kory Lichtensteiger (LG), Will Montgomery (C), Chris Chester (RG), Tyler Polumbus (RT).

Let's hope the right side of the Bucs line will become more reliable as the season progresses.

The Redskins gave up six sacks last week.

DEFENSE

Defensive line: Michael Bennett, Gerald McCoy, Roy Miller, Daniel Te'o Neisheim vs. Jarvis Jenkins, Barry Cofield, Stephen Bowen.

How will the Bucs defensive line performs with Adrian Clayborn out for the season? It played well in Dallas. A repeat performance is a must on Sunday.

Advantage: Push

Linebackers: Lavonte David, Mason Foster, Quincy Black vs. Ryan Kerrigan, London Fletcher, Perry Riley, Rob Jackson.

This is probably the best defensive unit for both teams.

Advantage: Push

Secondary: Aqib Talib, Eric Wright, Ronde Barber, Mark Barron vs. DeAngelo Hall, Josh Wilson, DeJon Gomes, Madieu Williams.

Raheem Morris' secondary in Washington has been dreadful.

Advantage: Tampa Bay, big advantage.

Special teams: Michael Koenin, Connor Barth and who knows who the return guys will be vs. Sav Rocca, Billy Cundiff, Brandon Banks.

The Bucs kicking game is strong, the return game suspect.

Advantage: Tampa Bay

Take all of this, stir it up and here's what we get:

Prediction: Buccaneers 24, Redskins 16
