Games 9-12 (2-2) Overall record: 3-9
It’s a miracle! The Bucs won back-to-back games. The offense carried the strong momentum and took down the Washington Redskins 28-21. Evans was a monster and hauled in 11 passes for 189 yards and a touchdown.
Tampa was then quieted by the Giants as Jones continued to struggle behind what has become a banged up offensive line.
The next game was a heart-breaker. Down by four with the ball and just over a minute left in regulation, Peyton Barber fumbled the football and cut the Bucs comeback effort just short.
Amazingly, Tampa Bay came back and beat the Panthers again for their third victory of the season.
- Tampa remains at the bottom of the league and has scored just 167 points this season. The next lowest team has put up 185 points.
- The Buccaneers defense has woken up and has cracked the top ten in total defense.
- Stopping the run has been the biggest problem for the defense however as they have given up 1,262 yards on the year the second-worst mark in the league.
- Last season’s sack total has already been reached (22).
