Most Disappointing: Buccaneers Win Over Rams

Tampa Bay Buccaneers Bruce Arians

On perfect day in Southern California, in the historic L.A. Coliseum, the Buccaneers made history, scoring the most points in franchise history in their 55-40 win over the previously unbeaten L.A. Rams. While the end result was exactly what the Buccaneers (2-2) needed, the Rams offense moved the ball at will at times, including throwing for 517 yards.

In defense of the Bucs defense, the longest play from scrimmage was just a 37-yard throw by Jared Goff. While the secondary surrendered a number of yards, it did a reasonable job of keeping most everything in front of the defensive backs.

Below is’s list of Most Disappointing Bucs from Sunday’s match-up with the L.A. Rams, and no surprise – all come from the secondary.

CB Sean Murphy-Bunting

The rookie out of Central Michigan had a poor performance on special teams in Los Angeles. In the first quarter, Murphy-Bunting was in position to pin the Rams deep on a punt, but couldn’t keep the ball out of the end zone. He then ran into Rams’ punt returner JoJo Natson in the second quarter, resulting in a 15-yard penalty that set Los Angeles up at mid-field and led to their second touchdown. A couple of mistakes cost the Bucs valuable field position.
