2. Zone coverage from the defense

The Bucs defense has been one of the best in the league at creating turnovers and they’ve got a couple of extremely physical and talented cornerbacks.

That being said, the zone coverage against quarterback who has any kind of a pulse has been absolutely terrible this season.

Drew Brees tore that defense apart. Guys like Daniel Jones and Jared Goff had success against them, perhaps some of their best work all season.

Yes, the defense is talented and has a lot of nice pieces, but the zone coverage has been atrocious and there’s no way around it.
