Bucs Running Game, Run Defense Come Alive Vs Jags

The Bucs have had a very soft training camp with nothing more than thud tempo during contact periods and no live tackling periods. The lack of physicality showed in the preseason opener at Cincinnati where the Bucs had trouble getting their running game started as well as stopping the Bengals’ ground game, as Tampa Bay surrendered 140 yards on the ground.

Well, that lackluster showing in Cincy, plus a much more physical and competitive week of practice in Jacksonville against the Jaguars apparently did the trick.

The Bucs wanted to focus on running the ball and stopping the run against the Jaguars – and did just that in a 12-8 victory in Jacksonville.
