Post The Buccaneers beat the Panthers 24-17 on Sunday
Raymond James Stadium to pick up their second straight win. The victory got them to 5-7 on the year Youth Lavonte David Jersey , which keeps them on the edge of the playoff conversation for at least another week. A lot would have to go right for Tampa Bay to make its way into the postseason for the first time since 2007, but for now, it’s just nice to see the team playing some pretty good football. Plenty of guys stepped up in Sunday’s win. Let’s take a look at our Buccaneers of the Week.5. Jason Pierre-Paul (One point)Jason Pierre-Paul always seems to make a play or two that impacts the game in a positive way for the Bucs. It’s something that Tampa Bay has probably gotten used to now that the veteran defensive end has been with the team for almost a full season. In Sunday’s game, he came up with a fourth-quarter sack to continue the defense’s big day. He finished the day with that sack, an additional quarterback hit and three tackles overall. His leadership on the defensive line has led to a big step forward for the unit as a whole, especially since the departure of Mike Smith earlier this season.With his crucial sack of Cam Newton in this week’s victory, JPP brought his 2018 sack total to 11 1/2, which ties him for fourth-most in the NFL. The Buccaneer record is 16 1/2, set by Warren Sapp in 2000. It would take a couple of multi-sack games down the stretch for Pierre-Paul to beat that mark, but his season can be considered a success regardless. He picks up another point in this week’s standings to keep his spot near the top of the overall 2018 rankings.4. Chris Godwin (Two points)With his third career 100-yard receiving game, Chris Godwin could have been higher on this list. In terms of the standings, it was just unlucky for the second-year pro that so many other guys stepped up in the win over the Panthers. Tampa Bay’s passing game has been a strength this season, despite the turnovers, and Godwin has been a huge part of that. In Sunday’s game, he caught five of his six targets for 101 yards and a touchdown. His 48-yard catch on a slant route in the second quarter set the Bucs up in prime position to extend their lead, but a Peyton Barber fumble stalled momentum. Either way, Godwin showed once again on Sunday why he was such a steal in the third round of the 2017 NFL Draft.What Sunday also did was prove even further that Tampa Bay has someone that can easily be a No. 2 wide receiver for the foreseeable future. With DeSean Jackson failing to find much chemistry with either Buccaneer quarterback these days (plus his attitude likely becoming a problem in the locker room), it would make sense for the team to move on from the veteran this offseason. If and when they do so, the front office can rest comfortably in knowing what it has in Godwin. The Penn State product is up to 49 catches for 676 yards and five touchdowns this season. He earns two points in this week’s standings, moving him up in the top 10 overall. 3. Lavonte David (Three points)The Bucs were surely glad to have Lavonte David back from injury this week. The veteran linebacker made an immediate impact in the game, stopping Cam Newton for a short gain on the very first play before tipping a pass that led to an interception two plays later. He then ended the first quarter with a sack of Newton. Overall, David led the team with 12 tackles (10 solo), a sack and a pass defended. He was instrumental in getting the Buccaneer defense off the field throughout the day.Tampa Bay was without Brent Grimes, Vernon Hargreaves III, Carlton Davis and M.J. Stewart in the secondary on Sunday. Those guys are the top four corners on the team. Without them Peyton Barber Jersey , the Bucs absolutely needed the front seven to step up against a Panther offense that has the ability to be very dangerous. Overall, that front seven came through. Much of the credit belongs to David, who kept Newton and honest throughout the day. A lot of what No. 54 does often seems to go unnoticed, but he is a consistent plus for the Tampa Bay defense. In his first week back in action after an injury, he did enough to take home three points in this week’s standings.2. Jameis Winston (Four points)Tampa Bay’s back-to-back wins have a lot to do with the play of Jameis Winston. Throughout his career and especially a lot of this season, the 24-year-old quarterback has been known for making poor decisions with the ball. He is looked at league-wide as a talented player, but one who has a damaging tendency to be a turnover machine. He was benched for it earlier this season, but since coming back from that, he has been much better with the ball. He threw one interception against the Giants, though it was on a desperation deep ball late in the game. Since that throw, he has played two clean games. Those two mistake-free games produced two victories.In the first half of Sunday’s win over Carolina, Winston was clicking. He threw two touchdown passes to help Tampa Bay get out to a 10-point halftime lead. The offense stalled a bit more in the second half, but he still managed the group well and took care of the ball. He finished the day 20-of-30 for 249 yards, two touchdowns and no turnovers. His second touchdown pass gave him the franchise record for passing scores in a career. He was also the Bucs’ leading rusher, adding 48 yards on just five carries. The 2013 Heisman Trophy Winner has been very good in the last two weeks, leading to hope that he has finally turned a corner. For playing another clean game and breaking a franchise record, Winston earns four points in this week’s standings to pull him into a tie for fourth overall.1. Andrew Adams (Five points)Carl Nassib’s two sacks against the Browns earlier this season gave us an odd No. 1 in our Buccaneers of the Week Standings. In a similar way, we get another seemingly-random guy at the top of this week’s list. Sunday belonged to Tampa Bay safety Andrew Adams. The 26-year-old out of UConn might not have been very familiar to many in the fan base before this week, but his THREE interceptions of Cam Newton will earn him plenty of love. He had help from a tip by Lavonte David and two big quarterback pressures by Gerald McCoy, but it was just the fourth time in team history that a player came up with three interceptions in a single game. Ronde Barber did it twice before Aqib Talib did it in 2009. Regardless of what comes next, Adams has his name etched in Buccaneer history forever.Sunday’s breakout day for Adams was just another example of why sports are so great. A guy that is largely unknown can become a hot topic around an entire league within just a few hours. The former New York Giant stepped up in a major way, especially considering the state of Tampa Bay’s secondary. If the Bucs somehow make the playoffs this season, Adams will deserve a lot of credit for making it possible. He debuts in these standings this week at the very top, earning five points for an unforgettable performance.Updated Buccaneers of the Week Standings through week 13:Mike Evans— 23 pointsJason Pierre-Paul— 22 pointsRyan Fitzpatrick— 17 points(TIE) Peyton Barber/Jameis Winston— 16 points(TIE) Carl Nassib/Lavonte David— 12 pointsDeSean Jackson— 11 pointsO.J.

For those that aren’t Authentic Ryan Smith Jersey , I’d like to welcome you to Pick Six. Every Monday (and one Tuesday thanks to a Monday Night game) from now through the end of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers’ season - whenever that may be - I’ll be posting my Pick Six column. It’s pretty simple; a list of six things based off of a topic regarding the Bucs’ game and there are - you guessed it - six topics. Today, we’re going to use Pick Six to dive into a season preview as the Buccaneers are less than one week away from playing their first game of the season.Let’s get started, shall we?Six Topics Suitable For Debate What Are Some Realistic Expectations For The Bucs? - For a team that was picked to make the postseason last year and finish with five wins, the expectations certainly aren’t very high along the national landscape. I’ve seen the Bucs picked to win as little as two games this season but it seems as though most are putting them back in that five win category. I, on the other hand, believe this is a team that can go at least .500 if they can escape the Ryan Fitzpatrick starts with a minimum of one win. Just steal one of the first three games and the schedule eases up. In the division, anything can happen. Outside of that, you get the Bengals, Browns, Ravens, 49ers, Cowboys, Giants, Redskins - all winnable games that the Bucs have the talent to match-up with. Realistically - and barring any major injuries - this team has all the talent to be a postseason contender. The big question is the guys wearing the headsets. That brings us to... Can the offense continue to be as effective with Dirk Koetter taking back the playcalling? - During the preseason, the Bucs’ offense looked fantastic. Whether it was the ones, twos, threes, or the guys that were cut on Friday and Saturday, the offense was moving the ball and putting points on the board. Was it the play calling by offensive coordinator Todd Monken or was the execution? Honestly, it was a little from column A, a little from column B, but you can’t deny how much more efficient the offense looked in those games. Now, we can’t really accurately judge how effective it would be in the regular season vs how it was in the preseason because those are two very different monsters. We can say that the red zone efficiency and play calling was much better with Monken calling the shots in those four games, but that won’t necessarily mean that things will change drastically as Koetter takes the reigns back. Only time will tell. As for the defense...Can Mike Smith Get Out Of His Own Way? - The defense still looked pretty bad. Corners are still playing with 10-15 yard cushions on receivers, the safeties were leaving a lot to be desired Youth Justin Evans Jersey , and everyone on the second and third levels were taking bad angles to the ball and missing tackles. Not good. Jason Licht brought in a ridiculous amount of talent along the defensive line to get pressure after the quarterback, but the back end is still cause for concern. We all like what we’ve seen from rookies Carlton Davis and M.J. Stewart, Vernon Hargreaves III has looked much improved, but the defense still wasn’t getting it done. They need to figure it out quick or Mike Smith will be having a very awkward conversation with his good friend Dirk Koetter...How Will Ronald Jones Fit In? - The hype train has derailed, run off the tracks, and exploded into a fireball of terror when it comes to second round pick Ronald Jones. He finished the preseason with fewer yards than he had carries, had horrendous dropped passes, and was overall a disappointment. That doesn’t mean he’ll stay that way. It’s going to take time for Jones to get in to a groove so Bucs fans should rejoice that Peyton Barber has stepped up to look like a legit, bonafide starting NFL running back. The biggest worry for Jones is that undrafted rookie Shaun Wilson is going to steal his spotlight. Wilson has been outstanding throughout camp and preseason as a running back and a return man. I still have faith in RoJo being an explosive, big play back - it’s just going to take a little more time than we had hoped.How Will Jameis Winston Be Received? - Jameis Winston will make his debut in Chicago in week four. As a visiting player, he was already going to get some jeers. Now, coming off the suspension, it will likely be 100 times worse than normal. Winston has thick skin. He can handle it. He has before. After that, the Bucs are on a bye, then back on the road to Atlanta. The big question is how will he be received when he sets foot inside Raymond James Stadium on October 21 against the Browns? Many Bucs fans still support Jameis and hope that he’s matured to the level he and others claim he has since the alleged incident took place. However, there is still a strong contingent of the Bucs’ fanbase that want him gone, don’t buy into his stories, or flat out don’t like him. Will they stand and boo as he’s introduced? Will they make signs calling for him to be booted from the team? It’s going tot be interesting to see how it plays out when Winston steps in front of his home town fans.Will O.J. Howard Assert Himself As The Alpha? - Last season, we saw stretches where Cameron Brate was as dominant as he was during the 2016 season. Then he’d disappear and O.J. Howard would be the big man on campus. Brate signed a mega extension which, once you break it down, equates to about a one year deal. So, if Howard is the guy that takes the big step forward and we see Brate’s numbers drop off, you could see the Bucs move him via trade or release to get out from that money. No, I’m not advocating they get rid of Brate, but Howard may take the leap this year and assert himself as the top tight end on the team , leaving Brate to fill in on occasion. I understand the connection with Brate and Winston is a big one, but who’s to say Winston can’t develop the same chemistry with Howard? Just something to keep an eye on...Six Bold PredictionsPeyton Barber will have double digit touchdownsJameis Winston will still have over 4,000 passing yards despite missing three gamesChris Godwin will finish with the second most receiving yards on the teamJason Pierre-Paul will have 10.5 sacksVernon Hargreaves will lead the team in interceptionsKwon Alexander will lead the NFL in tacklesSix Ways To Get Sunday To Come FasterPick up extra shifts at work - time moves faster when you are busySleep when at all possible - Yes, the complete opposite of number one, but you don’t even notice time when you’re unconscious, right?Watch last year’s Hard Knocks - and realize that things are going to be better this yearWatch this year’s Hard Knocks - and realize things could be worseStart planning your tailgate party - plan the menu, location, who’s in, who’s out, departure time, beverage situation, etc. With as much work as you’ll put into all the planning and travel arrangements to New Orleans, Sunday will be here before you know it.Join fifteen more fantasy leagues - Doesn’t even mean you have to pay attention to them all season long. Just hop in some public leagues that need owners. The drafts will eat up about 90 minutes to two hours each. Time will FLY by.Six Key Players for SundayRyan Fitzpatrick - It starts and ends with him. He doesn’t have to be a hero, just don’t do anything stupid to cost the Bucs the game. Manage the game, manage the clock, and hope the defense can put Brees on his butt a few times.Jason Pierre-Paul - They traded draft capital to bring him in, we need to see JPP come out of the gates swingin. Take some pressure off Gerald McCoy, get some pressure on Brees, and lead this defense into New Orleans against a high powered offense and shut them down.Vernon Hargreaves III - Big test. Has he learned from the mistakes of last year? Or is Brees gonna roast him like a marshmallow all game long? Time to put up or shut up for VHIII.Gerald McCoy - McCoy always shows up, but he’s got the talent around him to also show out. No one gets off the ball quicker and McCoy needs to bust through the offensive line and blow up Alvin Kamara’s spot in the backfield. Take Kamara off his game - which is easier said than done - and the Bucs have a real shot.Mike Evans - Disappointing season last year. Evans is going to be the red zone target and he has to convert. He had more red zone targets in 2017 than 2016 yet in 2016 he finished with eight more touchdowns in that area. Mike, you’re a leader on the team, a leader on the offense - it’s on you to convert those opportunities.Brent Grimes - Please slow down Michael Thomas. Pretty please?Six Super Bowl BetsMinnesota Vikings - Made it to the NFC Championship without Dalvin Cook and with Case Keenum under center. Now they get Cook AND add Kirk Cousins? Yikes.New England Patriots - Yeah, they look like a disaster - but you and I both know they’re gonna win twelve games and run roughshod through the postseason againNew Orleans Saints - Lost on a crazy fluke to Minnesota last year. Might be Brees’ walk into the sunset if they make it to the big dance.Pittsburgh Steelers - Le’Veon Bell is playing for his mega deal he’ll get from another team. He’s going to ball out - as will the rest of the Steelers’ offensePhiladelphia Eagles - Going to be a rough start to the season, but as soon as Wentz gets back watch outLos Angeles Rams - Good heavens that defense...Final Six WordsThe Buccaneers’ Season Is Finally Here
