The Tampa Bay Buccaneers saw their two-game winning streak come to an end against the Pittsburgh Steelers on Monday Night Football. Which players saw their stock most affected?
Alright, folks. Let’s rip off the band-aid and get the bad news out of the way: The Tampa Bay Buccaneers won’t be going undefeated this season.
Despite another 400 yard game from Ryan Fitzpatrick and a terrific performance from Jason Pierre-Paul, the Buccaneers couldn’t keep pace with the Pittsburgh Steelers, who won 30-27.
The good news is that the Bucs offense continued to operate at a high level – albeit filled with too many self-inflicted mistakes and a complete lack of running game. This team has proven without a doubt through three weeks that they can stack up with the best offenses in the league; wins are determined mostly by turnover differential and red zone success, both of which the Buccaneers failed at against Pittsburgh.
From a stock perspective, we’ve got movement everywhere, on both sides of the ball. Let’s take a look at how everyone was affected.
