It was a rough night for the Buccaneers, falling to their division rivals for the first time in two years. Here are the grades.
It was not the best of nights for the Buccaneers. The offense couldn’t get much going, other than Jameis Winston to Mike Evans. The defense got some pass rush going, but overall couldn’t stop anyone. Heading into the fourth quarter, the Falcons had nearly posted 400 yards of total offense, which obviously is unacceptable.
The injuries piled up by the end of the night, giving us the first appearance of Mike Glennon late. All in all, it was a very ugly night as the Bucs fell another full game behind in the NFC South race with a 3-5 record. The final score is above, but truthfully, it never really was that close.
Let’s get right to the report card grades.
