How Do the Buccaneers Slow Down the Raiders’ Offense?
Control the Clock
How do you stop a high-powered offense from scoring points? Keep them off the field. You do that by winning the battle of time of possession.
Jacquizz Rodgers has been something, hasn’t he? On the streets just a few weeks ago, we are now looking at a guy that has posted back to back 100 yard performances. Rodgers has shown himself to be just the back the Bucs have needed with Doug Martin and Charles Sims on the shelf with injuries.
Oakland has been suspect against the run so far this year. To date, they are ranked 28th in the league, allowing 128.3 yards per game on the ground. The Bucs need to take advantage by starting with a heavy dose of Rodgers. We don’t need a huge afternoon from Jameis Winston, but if they run the football he will have openings in play action. Control the clock, win the game.
