The Tampa Bay Buccaneers took home the victory in their second preseason game. Here are the most important takeaways from the win over the Tennessee Titans.
It’s been a positive preseason thus far for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. The offense has put a ton of points on the board, and the defense has held their ground with all of the new additions.
The Bucs walked away with a 30-14 win over the Titans and Jameis Winston shined in the first half. Tampa Bay showed off how devastating their offense can be with a potent aerial attack.
There was a lot to like during Saturday’s game besides Winston. Rookie corner M.J. Stewart forced a turnover and a pair of rookie wideouts caught touchdown passes.
Here are some takeaways from the Buccaneers second preseason contest:
Bucs wideouts reign supreme
Each Buccaneers wideout seemed to have their moment tonight. From Mike Evans‘ incredible grab to DeSean Jackson‘s deep ball, all of the talented wide receivers made their presence felt. Evans and Jackson combined for four catches for 114 yards on the night.
Justin Watson and Sergio Bailey, a pair of rookie wide receivers caught touchdowns as well. While Bailey remains a long shot to make the roster, it’s impossible to ignore his performance in the first two games.
Watson may soon lock up the fifth receiver role. He made a terrific catch in the end zone and led the team with four receptions to go along with his 54 yards receiving.
Don’t forget about Chris Godwin. He came down with a ball which Winston lofted up amidst three defenders. In his second season, Godwin is a prime breakout candidate.
