The Tampa Bay Buccaneers traveled to Tennessee for their second preseason contest and managed to escape with a victory. Which of their players successfully managed their stock in the game and who saw it drop?
The “Stock Report” makes its debut today, a weekly series that will track the individual stock of players based on their most recent performance. We begin with the Buccaneers’ latest game, an exhibition match against the Tennessee Titans.
Strangely, the Tennessee Titans feel like rivals to the Bucs. The two teams hardly ever play each other, and yet the two of them share a few bonds – the Jameis Winston/Marcus Mariota debate, Titans general manager Jon Robinson’s roots with the Bucs and the blowout loss that the Bucs suffered to the Titans in the shared debut of Winston and Mariota back in 2015. Fortunately for the Bucs, things went much better for them this time around.
Tampa Bay’s 30-14 road victory brings them to 2-0 in the preseason, and like last game, this one was filled with players trying to make the most of their limited opportunities. Who succeeded? Who did not? Over the course of the next two slides, we’ll take a look at those questions and provide a few answers. Let’s get started!
