Breaking Down the Numbers: Bucs vs Jets

A closer look at some of the statistics from Sunday’s painful loss against the Jets:

13: The number of penalties committed by the Bucs. That is way too many. And by the way, that doesn’t include the penalties that were declined.

5: The number of times the Jets got a first down as a result of Tampa Bay penalties.

4.2: The number of yards the Bucs averaged per play. That’s not going to get the job done.

65: The number of rushing yards Doug Martin had. It’s no secret that other teams are going to stack the line of scrimmage to try and stop Martin this season. But if Josh Freeman can’t even complete half of his passes, as was the case Sunday, well I think you know where I’m heading with this.

154: The number of receiving yards Vincent Jackson had on Sunday. Yeah, he’s good.

5: The number of times the Bucs sacked Geno Smith. That’s encouraging.

3: The number of times the Jets sacked Freeman. That’s not encouraging.
