…and the Bucs Lose Again, in Familiar Fashion

Stop me if we’ve seen this act before from the 2018 Buccaneers.

 

They can’t stop anyone from scoring, consistently making other bad teams look like Super Bowl contenders.

 

They keep turning the ball over.

 

They can’t take the ball away.

 

They fall behind by a ridiculous amount of points, then rally in the second half to make things interesting, only to come up short in the end.

 

The game against the Giants was almost a mirror image of what we saw in Cincinnati.  This time, it was Ryan Fitzpatrick who got benched in the second half after throwing three interceptions – including a pick-six – and Jameis Winston coming in off the bench to lead the charge. 

 

Heck, Eli Manning only had one incompletion for the entire game.  One!  And I happened to be watching when it happened.  The receiver was open; it was a poorly-thrown ball.  The Buccaneers did sack him four times – got to give them credit for that.

 

Am I surprised the Bucs lost this game?  Of course not.  This is what Tampa Bay does best.  I’m sure they’ll make the 49ers look like superstars next Sunday.

 

But in two weeks, Buccaneer Bri is coming to Ray-Jay.  The excitement is building.
