What a difference a week makes I guess. The Buccaneers came out flat from the get go. They had some players perform at the level but many of them underperformed.
40-7. That was the final score of this lackluster performance the Buccaneers displayed in Arizona against the formidable Cardinals. The Bucs had a chance to make a huge statement with a victory over the 0-1 Cardinals. After the Cards looked unprepared against a weak Patriots team the Bucs would have finally gotten some solid recognition from the media and the rest of the NFL. But they lost, and this one was bigger that just a regular loss.
