Winner: Rachaad White

A lot has been made about the Buccaneers run game, and not much of it has been good. Last year Tampa Bay had the worst rushing attack in the league, and changes made this offseason to fix that haven't seemed to produce drastically different results four weeks into the new season.

Rachaad White took over RB1 duties after Leonard Fournette left in free agency, but it took just a few games for fans to start wondering aloud if it might be a good idea to bring him back. Sunday saw White fight back at this, as he finished the game with 56 yards on 15 carries and some key plays that helped the Bucs dominate the Saints.

This isn't the first time we've seen White respond after a bad game, and here's to hoping he can be more consistent with his progress. What he did on Sunday against the Saints was impressive on a number of levels, not the least of which was how he made plays when he didn't have the ball that still helped the Bucs offense.

His block on Baker's first down scramble that extended a scoring drive is just as important as some of the plays he made with the ball, and acted as proof of life for a Bucs run game that is slowly starting to wake up.
