There is no doubt every football fan was tuned in to Saturday's game between the Washington Redskins and Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

The scene at Wild Wing's Café in Charlottesville was hectic, where hundreds loaded the bar and restaurant to see the Redskins stomp the Bucs.

While most of the people there were fans of the Skins and happy to see them win, there was one there for the Bucs.

"Naturally, [I'm] heartbroken," said Buccaneers fan Pete Kooken. "I'm sure everyone here, though, is ready for me to go."

"I thought that they did pretty well," said Redskins fan Chris Lippincott. "They played obviously a lot better on defense than on offense, but it's a big win."
