Three keys for the Buccaneers to not only win, but dominate the Chargers

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers will play host to the Los Angeles Chargers Sunday afternoon in Raymond James Stadium in front of a live crowd of around 10,000 fans.

The Buccaneers improved to 2-1 on the season with a 28-10 victory over the Denver Broncos last weekend and will now be looking to continue their winning ways against a Chargers team that has fallen short in a couple of contests already this season.

Overall, Tampa Bay is considered a 7.5-point favorite, but there’s no reason to believe that the Buccaneers can’t win by more than that when it’s all said and done.

Here are three keys to not only win the game, but to dominate the Chargers.

3. Make the rookie uncomfortable

Justin Herbert will be making another starter in his Chargers uniform and he hasn’t looked back to this point since taking over for the injured Tyrod Taylor.

Herbert has weapons like Keenan Allen, Hunter Henry and Mike Williams who could make things difficult on the Bucs’ secondary, but the first key to not only winning this game but potentially coming away with a dominating victory is to make the rookie uncomfortable.

Get in the backfield and come away with a some sacks or, at the very least some QB hits and pressures. The Bucs have one of the best pass-rushes in the league and that has to be the starting point for the defense Sunday afternoon.
