Two wins in a row? Three wins in the last four games?
Yes, the Buccaneers are playing much, much better these days.
They beat the Jaguars today in Jacksonville, converting turnovers into points to build an early lead, then making a big play in the fourth quarter to seal the victory when the Jags were trying to get back in it.
The biggest star of this game? Look no further than rookie Devin White. He had an interception that led to a touchdown. Then he found the end zone when Shaq Barrett stripped the ball from Nick Foles, White picked it up and took it to the house.
Jameis Winston had a ho-hum kind of day. But he did not turn the ball over, and that is the biggest stat of them all.
Over the last two days, the story for the Bucs has been the defense stepping up and making plays. Who would’ve thought that? The Colts come to Ray-Jay next Sunday, and Buccaneer Bri (a.k.a. me) will be there for that one. I can’t wait.
