Tampa Bay Buccaneers vs Jacksonville Jaguars 12/01/2019
Tampa Bay Buccaneers
The Buccaneers completed an ownage of Atlanta Falcons in their previous matchup. They ran away with a 35-22 endgame score. QB Jameis Winston was on overdrive, going for 18/28 and flying in 313 air yards. He capped the night with 3 perfectly-thrown TDs and 2 picks. Ronald Jones II rushed through 12 carries, helping his team gain 51 yards. More importantly, he rushed in for a TD. Chris Godwin brought up the receiving end of the team by notching 7 receptions. He extended the team’s reach to 184 yards.
The Tampa Bay Buccaneers were playing an optimal game as marked by their exemplary defense. They cut down the opponent’s throw attempts to only 51% completion, plus they limited rush attempts to only 19. The Buccaneers rushed 34 times out of 62 plays, indicating a healthy balance of rushing and throwing. While they’re not exactly known for mixed offense, the Buccaneers were able to dominate both fronts in that game.
The Buccaneers also won the tale of the yards, chalking in a total of 446 yards as compared to their opponent’s 337 yards. This proves that yardage domination really equals higher chances of winning the game. The Buccaneers should now focus on intensity and consistency so that they’ll be able to carry through this performance in the current matchup and beyond.

The Jaguars last fought against the Tennessee Titans and were soundly defeated with a 42-20 endgame score. QB Nick Foles was being attacked from all positions, and he ended the game with 32/48 and 272 passing yards. RB Leonard Fournette came to his rescue, carrying the ball 24 times. His efforts culminated with a 97 yardage gain and 2 rushing TDs. Dede Westbrook also helped take off the steam from the QB, catching the ball 8 times for 69 yards.
The Jaguars felt the brunt of their opponent’s defense and were unable to adjust accordingly. The Jaguars tried to counter by pouring everything into offense, leaving them with only a token defense. This did more harm rather than good. The Jaguars allowed a 78% completion rate on opponent throws. They were also powerless against the opponents’ 33 rush attempts.
The Jaguars need to study their previous matchup very carefully. They need to find answers on why they were only able to ruck up 369 yards as compared to the opponent’s 471 yards Despite their 27 rush attempts, they weren’t able to keep up with the opponent’s score, and were buried beneath an onslaught of points.
