Who won the buccaneers game today? The Buccaneers beat the Rams in a nail-biting 20 – 37. The Buccaneer’s defense was strong against the Ram’s offense, intercepting two of their passes. Buccaneer’s running back Doug Martin rushed 28 times for 124 yards and led his team to victory with two touchdowns. Matt Cassel threw three interceptions that helped stall out any possible rams comeback in this hard-fought game.
The Bucs defense forced four fumbles during this game, three of which were recovered by the Rams. However, they weren’t able to capitalize on any turnovers except for one, when Mark Barron returned an interception for 6 points in the second quarter. Nevertheless, it was enough to knock off hot quarterback Nick Foles (19/28, 325 yds, 3 TDs).
Bobby Rainey made his NFL debut today after Doug Martin left the game with an ankle injury. He rushed 9 times for 19 yards but fumbled that cost them possession at their own 32-yard line. It led to a Rams drive that ended in points before halftime. The Bucs were able to avoid any turnovers offensively during this game – something they struggled with last week against the Dolphins, turning the ball over four times.
This win brings Tampa Bay to a 2-3 record and 4th place in the NFC South division. They face off against the Vikings next week who are also 2-3 having lost three straight games after a 5-0 start to begin the season.
Who were the leading players on both teams?
Jameis Winston is the leading player on their team. Mike Evans, Vincent Jackson, Doug Martin, and Charles Sims act as key players for the Buccaneers football team. Each of them has made significant contributions this year to help out their side win games that they were playing in.
Ryan Fitzpatrick was leading for the other team with 323 passing yards and 2 touchdowns with 1 interception thrown throughout his game today against Tampa Bay’s defense system; he was also backed up by Brandon Marshall who had 17 catches for 146 yards and 1 touchdown scored. Chris Ivory had 18 carries for 56 rushing yards that helped him be a vital part of this team’s success in the end.
Evans remains a top player for Tampa Bay Buccaneers
The Buccaneers lost several key players during this match up including Doug Martin who had to leave early in the second quarter due to a hamstring injury and Vincent Jackson, who was taken out of the game due to a rib injury. However, Mike Evans is still in for this team and remains a top player on their offense system to help his team win.
“We’re just taking one game at a time and we’re confident in what we’re doing. We still have some other great players who stepped up for us today, like Brandon Marshall and Matt Forte.” (Shein)
Bucs players play hard but still fell short of the win
Several Buccaneers did not play today including Doug Martin and Vincent Jackson who were both out early due to injuries; Charles Sims was inactive during this football game after he suffered an ankle injury several weeks back.
Because of their absence, the Bucs had trouble winning but Mike Evans is still active on the team’s offense system and played well enough to help them stay within reach until the end of the game when they tried their best but unfortunately lost against another team that they faced off against today. Their fans’ support went out to the other team that they were playing against today in the end.
The Buccaneers lost to the Ravens today as they fell 48-40 against them in Florida during their second away game. Jameis Winston had his most efficient performance as he passed for 183 yards and 3 touchdowns with no interceptions, while also running for 36 more yards including a 5-yard touchdown run early in the third quarter to give Tampa Bay a 35-20 lead. The defense struggled against Drew Brees but managed to hold Alvin Kamara and Mark Ingram Jr. to only 97 total rushing yards and making two turnovers. The Bucs’ bye week is now after starting 1-2 overall this season before returning on Monday night September 25 against the Pittsburgh Steelers at home.
