The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have begun the 2020 NFL season with a decent start, but some changes need to occur before they live up to their potential.

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers are 2-1 and are sitting comfortably atop the NFC South standings. With an easy stretch of games coming up, the Bucs have a legitimate shot at the playoffs, but there is still plenty of room to improve.

While most teams would be happy to take the above .500 record, the Buccaneers will need to grow before they can actually compete with the other top teams in the NFC. The Packers and the Seahawks are dominating other teams, good teams too, and Tampa Bay will need to be on that level if they hope to compete in the playoffs.

The roster has generally not been an issue in Tampa Bay, but other decisions have caused the team to underperform. The offense has been lackluster, and the Bucs have only scored 15 total points in the last two second halves of games. Not playing a complete game before week four sows some nervous feelings amongst the fanbase, and some changes are needed.

If the Bucs want to coast and just finish above .500, they are on the right track, but if they’re going to live up to their potential, they need to consider making the following moves.
