Buccaneers vs Seahawks: Five Game-Changing Players
By Bailey Adams
It’s taken some time, but if last Sunday was any indication, Roberto Aguayo has found his footing. The second-rounder was a mess early on this season, but has delivered lately. He has made nine of his last 10 field goal attempts, including seven straight between weeks eight and 11. He made all four of his field goal attempts and his one extra point attempt last week, which earned him NFC Special Teams Player of the Week honors.
Against a team like the Seahawks, the Bucs won’t roll to a win. It’ll have to be a hard-fought battle, and in any close game, it could come down to one kick. Aguayo will have to stay sharp this week, especially considering the red zone struggles that Tampa Bay had a week ago. Those red zone struggles won’t be easy to overcome this week against an even better defense. Aguayo may have to kick a couple of field goals to keep the team in the game, and he may even need one to win the game for his team.
Steven Hauschka, Seattle’s kicker, is one of the top guys in the league. He is 21-for-24 on field goals this year, going 15-for-16 on kicks longer than 30 yards. He will be at the top of his game, which makes Aguayo even more important to the outcome of Sunday’s matchup.
