After back-t0-back narrow losses to the Rams and Chiefs before the Bucs went into their bye week, Tampa Bay bounced back with a crucial 26-14 win over the Vikings on Sunday.
After going down 6-0 early in the second quarter, the Bucs battled back with 23 unanswered points to take a commanding lead that they would ultimately hold on to as the clock ran out on Minnesota’s comeback attempts.
Head coach Bruce Arians spoke to the media following the Bucs’ win. Read the full transcript below.
On Scotty Miller’s touchdown starting the offense
“No doubt. We, again, missed a couple of third downs early but that was a huge touchdown and I think that getting the stop and then that play changed all the momentum on our sideline.”
On making Leonard Fournette inactive, LeSean McCoy’s role
“The decision was… I loved Leonard. I think he’s a heck of a kid, a great player but we wanted to get [McCoy] back involved. He’s fresh and he showed it today. He made it all pay off for me. I took the risk and he made it pay off, he made the best of his opportunity.”
