V-Jax and Mike Evans lead the NFL in first down percentage


Vincent Jackson is definitely the fan favorite when it comes to Buccaneers wide receivers, this year. Mike Evans however, has taken a lot of backlash for dropping passes when they are most crucial. None they less, they both rank at the very top of the NFL, when it comes to first down percentages. 

“Both Jackson and Evans are averaging more than 15 yards per reception, with Jackson ranking sixth in the league among qualifiers at 16.8 and Evans ranking 14th at 15.7. The Buccaneers are one of only four teams with two qualifying pass-catchers averaging more than 15 yards per reception” – Reported by Scott Smith
