The Tampa Bay Buccaneers were able to get another win, this time over the Seattle Seahawks in Munich, Germany. Here are our gold, silver, and bronze medalists for the Buccaneers in the win.
Are the Tampa Bay Buccaneers back or are the Tampa Bay Buccaneers back? We don’t want to get too far ahead of ourselves, especially since the game got just a little spicy towards the stretch there, surely causing more than a few Buccaneers fans to sweat a bit.
Nevertheless, the Bucs have won two in a row, and there are some players that deserve some shoutouts. That is cause for excitement. Now that the pirate ship appears to have steered out of the rough waters, we can get back to a streak of our own, and hand out gold, silver, and bronze medals for the second straight week. As always, let’s get to some honorable mentions first.
Honorable Mentions: Tom Brady, Nick Leverett, Joe Tryon-Shoyinka
Tom Brady’s stats may not have jumped off the page, but he did complete 22 of 29 passes. He threw for 258 yards and two touchdowns as a result, but also a pretty bad interception. That said, his impact goes beyond the numbers, as it seems he’s back to his old self mentally, and physically it’s resulting in wins on the field. It also helps that the offense looks a little better after Nick Leverett has taken over as the starter at left guard. He isn’t perfect, but his efforts deserve recognition.
On the other side of the ball, Joe Tryon-Shoyinka looked like he was shot out of a cannon all game, and got himself a sack. It really looks like he has what it takes to step up and fill the void left by the injury to Shaq Barrett.
Now that we gave shoutouts to those who just missed the podium, let’s get to the medalists.
Buccaneers Bronze Medal Winner: Chris Godwin
Maybe it took a little longer than was ideal, but Chris Godwin has slowly, but surely, worked his way back to form. It seems that he is back to his old self pre-injury, gobbling up targets, and as a result, production. Godwin was the Bucs’ leading receiver, catching six balls for 71 yards and a touchdown, and it appears he’s only getting better. This should be music to the collective ears of Buccaneers fans, as it’s yet another step taken to get this offense back on the right track.
