Week 10 vs. New York Jets Game Analysis by Hagen


Finally, we got another W! It has been about damn time, and we did not even look that bad, at least defensively. Our defense played great, actually, definitely the best defensive effort since the Bears game. New York could not get anything done offensively. According to NFL.com, they had a total of only 56 Yards on the ground. Let us not forget that we are talking about a team that ran all over the Buffalo Bills just one week ago. In addition to that, we even got pressure on Josh McCown on multiple occasions and were able to record 6 Sacks, that is almost as many as we were able to get in the previous eight games combined (8). On top of all that, we should have had a fumble, which was forced by Kwon Alexander, returned for a Touchdown by Lavonte David, which would have been the icing on the cake for an exceptional defensive performance.

Offensively, we did not play well again. Backup Quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick made a lot of bad throws and was way off on the Interception, which could easily have been a Touchdown if he had been on target. Our running game was not working once again, as Doug Martin averaged just over 2.5 Yards per carry. Fortunately, our defense kept us in the game. A bright spot on offense was DeSean Jackson, who had a decent game, as well as Chris Godwin, who filled in nicely for our suspended star wide receiver Mike Evans.

Up next is a very winnable game in Miami against the Dolphins.

Go Bucs!
