In the Trenches
I believe the best way to slow down the Oakland Raiders’ offense is through the trenches. The Oakland offense can both gash you with long runs and deep balls. If Gerald McCoy and the stout run defense continues their dominance, it leaves the game up to the edge pressure. If Robert Ayers is able to make his much-needed return, this task will become capable.
Since Ayers’ injury in Arizona, the Bucs’ consistent edge pressure has been almost non-existent. If the Bucs are able to play a game up to the standard they set against Atlanta, there should be an upset brewing in Tampa. Defeating these Oakland Raiders will be no easy task, watch for the Buccaneers to yet again prove if they are on the cusp of a new culture in the Bay.
