The Bucs got a much needed win on Sunday, beating the Seahawks 21-16 in Germany to move to 5-5 on the season. It was a pretty clean game on both sides of the ball. The offense had balance with 161 yards on the ground, including 105 by Rachaad White. And the defense got right in run defense and got their its takeaway since Week 4.
It seems like a lot of nitpicking this week, but here’s the list of most disappointing players (and coaches) in Week 10:
With the Bucs up 14 and moving the ball down the field, Leftwich called in a trick play that ended in disaster. The play he dialed up was a direct snap to Leonard Fournette and called for a pass to Tom Brady on the outside on the opposite side of the field. Brady, who slipped on the play, was soundly covered by Tariq Woolen, who came down with the easy interception. To make matters worse, Brady was called for tripping that added extra yards to the play.
Leftwich still went run-heavy on first down in the game, calling for 24 first-down runs for 102 yards. Those are good numbers, to be fair, but 29 and 18 of those yards came on a big runs by Rachaad White. If you take out those plays, the Bucs averaged just 2.5 yards per carry on first down.
