Even though the general consensus by critics was signaling a Eagles win despite a week 1 spectacular upset by the Bucs, Tampa Bay capped off a impressive though with a 4 TD performance by Ryan Fitzpatrick to win 27-20.
Fitzpatrick amassed 402 yards with 4 touchdowns for a QB rating of 144.4 showing that Fitzmagic is still going full steam ahead. Mike Evans, O.J. Howard, Chris Godwin all reached pay dirt today, but the most impressive TD of the day came from DeSean Jackson with a 75 yard TD catch on the first play of the game.
Peyton Barber did not get many chances early in the game with what seemed to be a “pass first” offense that was running on high octane. Something Tampa Bay hasn’t not been used to in recent years. He did play a crucial role in killing the clock in the final minutes of the game.
For week 3, the Bucs have a match up with the Steelers on Monday Night Football.
