The Tampa Bay Buccaneers undefeated season came to an end against the Pittsburgh Steelers. Check out the studs and duds from Monday Night’s back-and-forth battle.
For two weeks, all was well in Tampa Bay. Buccaneers fans were full of joy as Ryan Fitzpatrick led the league’s best offense to a pair of upset victories.
Then, the Pittsburgh Steelers came to town and silenced the Bucs in the first half. The “FitzMagic” run ended and it looked like Tampa Bay wasn’t ready for primetime yet again.
The Buccaneers showed some life in the second half, in control of the ball and down by just three points, hopeful thoughts crept back in.
Could this be? Is Fitzpatrick going to pull off another miracle?
Sadly, he fell just short and Tampa Bay would start the season with a 2-1 record.
There was plenty to take away from Monday night’s loss. The offense continued to put up points despite Fitzpatrick’s turnovers, Mike Evans continued to show why he is an elite wideout and the defense still needs a ton of work.
Individually, the Bucs had a ton of standout performances, in both good and bad ways.
