The Tampa Bay Buccaneers had their best win of the season when they needed it most in the divisional round of the playoffs. With no margin for error, Tampa Bay forced some turnovers and still put 30 points up on the board on the way to a 30-20 victory that sets them up for a showdown in the NFC Championship game against the Green Bay Packers.
There are still some parts of their game that need to be cleaned up, so here are the most disappointing players from the game.
KR Jaydon Mickens
Mickens does not see the field too often, so when he does, he’s got to make the most of it. He missed a tackle during the first punt of the game that allowed Saints’ returner Deonte Harris to take the ball all the way down to the 20-yard line and set New Orleans for what would be a field goal. He was running at full speed for a good 50-plus yards and still couldn’t take Harris down. Mickens got lucky that three points were all the damage that was done, because it could have been a lot worse. The Bucs defense held strong, and though it was early, it kept them in the game. Mickens had one punt return that went for 13 yards.
