Tampa Bay Buccaneers
The Buccaneers bowed down to the Carolina Panthers in their previous matchup with a 37-26 scoreboard. They were buoyed up by the efforts of QB Jameis Winston who shot 30/54 and an amazing 400 passing yards. He also threw in 1 touchdown and 5 interceptions. Peyton Barber carried the ball for only 8 times for a total of 28 yards. From this figure alone, you already know that this team was in trouble. Chris Godwin tried to compensate for the lack of rushing power by receiving the ball 10 times. He helped the team gain 151 yards in the process. Overall, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers only rushed 14 times out of 75 plays.
The low attempt at rushes was capitalized by the Panthers, who ended the game with a throw completion rate of 63%, The opponent gained 268 yards as opposed to the Buccaneers’ superior 407 yards. What probably got the team losing was their low yards-to-points conversion. The Buccaneers are one of the top-scoring teams in NFL this season, yet their ranking is somewhat surprising. The culprit for this is their very deficient defense. All the figures from their past games point to that fact. They need to tidy up their defensive department so that their high-scoring engine can net them more wins.
