Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick threw for 406 yards Sunday.

It wasn’t enough.

The Washington Redskins intercepted two balls and forced two fumbles in a 16-3 win over Tampa that gave the NFC East leaders their sixth win of the season.

Think four turnovers were painful for the Buccaneers?

Washington wasn’t done.

After the game, the Redskins’ official Twitter account trolled Tampa Bay and coach Dirk Koetter with edits on a Bucs video from earlier in the week.

Koetter had said around Halloween that his favorite candy was Bit-O-Honey. On Thursday, he tossed a series of Bit-O-Honey candies he’d received to media members.

The Redskins doctored the video Sunday to feature Koetter doling out “L’s,” or losses, instead of candies.

The Bucs issued no immediate response.

Bucs quarterback — now backup — Jameis Winston famously gave an unusual pep talk in 2017 telling his teammates to “eat a ‘W.’”

The Redskins aren’t the first NFL team to poke fun in Week 10. The Steelers began the trend, tweeting simply “thank u, next” after a decisive 52-21 win against Carolina on Thursday.

The tweet went viral, garnering more than 23,000 retweets and 82,000 likes.

Tennessee followed suit Sunday after a 34-10 win over Tom Brady and the Patriots.

But none were as pointed as the Redskins’ distribution of “L’s.”

The loss to the Redskins marked the third straight for the Buccaneers, who dropped to 3-6 overall. Koetter has a 17-24 all time record with the Bucs, following a 9-7 campaign in 2016 with 5-11 in 2017.

On Thursday, Koetter was lighthearted even amid a losing season.

“Everyone needs to try at least one Bit-O-Honey,” Koetter said, in both videos. “There’s no way I could eat this many.”

“I’m going to pass them out now because I might be throwing them harder. If you guys ask any stupid questions today, these are coming out hard.”

On Sunday, the coach was subdued in his postgame press conference.

A reporter asked what his message was to the team after the loss.

“When you get beat like that,” Koetter said, “I didn’t have a great message for the team after the game.

“I didn’t have a great message. We got beat and we have to live with the consequences.”

Sounds like he didn’t have any candy for them, either.
