No one particular predicted a Buccaneer earn and no one particular predicted Ryan Fitzpatrick to drop 48 points on the Saints protection. Offensive coordinator Todd Monken, did an exceptional career calling plays and the offense clicked from the opening travel. Beneath is some of the games top rated performers.
DeSean Jackson – Jackson begun quickly with a touchdown on the opening travel and under no circumstances looked again. This was by far his most effective match as a Buccaneer. He concluded with five catches for 146 yards and two touchdowns. That’s an typical of 29.2 YPC. Jackson experienced two touchdown catches of 35+ yards, which is essential for this Buccaneer offense. They want to go vertical and they did just that these days. This style of overall performance is just what the Buccaneers envisioned when they signed Jackson two many years ago.
Mike Evans – What else is new? A different substantial match for the Buccaneers most effective receiver. Just after currently being outplayed final calendar year by Marshon lattimore, Evans confirmed up in a huge way these days. The fifth calendar year receiver hauled in 7 catches for 147 yards and a touchdown. Evans, saved his amazing for the most component and did not allow for Lattimore to get into his head. Evans and the rest of the receivers built a assertion to the rest of the NFL these days that they have the most effective receiving main in the NFL.
Ryan Fitzpatrick – Think in the beard. Fitzmagic is alive and well. Fitzpatrick, related on 21/28 for 417 yards and four touchdowns, as well as a dashing touchdown. He was just breathtaking all afternoon and you couldn’t have questioned for a far better overall performance. Maybe, one particular of the most extraordinary points that Fitzpatrick did was operate the ball. He did not try out and drive something when receivers had been lined, he just tucked it and ran for 3-4 yards and went on to the upcoming enjoy. The huge operate (12 yards) came on the final enjoy of the match that iced the earn for Tampa Bay. It labored all night time and was a thing that was driving Saints fans insane (I was in a section with all Saints fans).
Offensive line – The managing match wasn’t lethal, but it was economical and unquestionably saved the Saints protection on their toes. The O-line also did not allow for a one sack and only experienced one particular penalty all afternoon. It was a step forward for a group that experienced some dilemma marks heading into this period.
Vernon Hargreaves III – With the protection offering up 40 points, it’s tricky to find lots of positives, but I considered Hargreaves played very well. He concluded with a staff significant six tackles and forced a huge fumble that led to a scoop and score for Justin evans. Vernon saved every little thing in entrance of him and did not allow for the huge enjoy. He also built a wonderful PBU late in the fourth quarter, but unfortunately injured himself on the enjoy. Ideally it’s not too really serious.
