The Buccaneers Pass Defense
Last season the Buccaneers had the worst pass defense in the NFL and technically through two games this season they have the second worst pass defense in the league after letting Drew Brees complete 82 percent of his passes for 439 yards and three touchdowns with zero interceptions during New Orleans’ comeback bid.
They also allowed Super Bowl MVP Nick Foles to toss for 314 yards and a touchdown this past week.
After two games, they have allowed opposing quarterbacks to complete 77 percent of their passes for 753 yards (376.5 yards per game), four touchdowns with zero interceptions. Only the Chiefs have given up more yards, and no other team has a worse opposing completion percentage.
Luckily, in each of the games the Buccaneers offense came out on fire and had a sizeable lead so the Saints and Eagles could not come back, but eventually, this red-hot Buccaneers offense is going to cool off (maybe), and the pass defense will have to play better. The Buccaneers cannot finish last or second to last in pass defense again and expect to be a playoff team.
Now you think if that is not the Ugly aspect of the Good, the Bad, and the Ugly what could be worse then that?
