Buccaneers Mayfield Talks Connection With Chris Godwin


Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback Baker Mayfield was fully aware the Chris Godwin social media buzz last week. In case you missed it, Godwin’s wife and many other “experts” called out the Bucs coaching staff for various issues. Mainly that Godwin isn’t being targeted enough.

Mayfield talked about this following the Buccaneers victory over the Falcons.

“As always, we have stuff involved for Chris in the game plan,” Mayfield said, via Heavy.com. “Like I said, early on in the game, they were only keyed on Mike [Evans], so there was some man-coverage stuff we were able to get Chris open, some opportunities. Take advantage of that. Chris and Mike are our two best receivers, so whenever you can get the ball to them, you try and do it.”

Godwin had a key catch to set up the team’s go-ahead touchdown to tight end Cade Otton.

“We were playing a four-down situation right there, just trying to get a couple of yards at a time,” Mayfield on Godwin’s catch. “But it was third-and-10, obviously, we weren’t successful on the first two. Chris ran a great route.”

Mayfield continued,

“Set up that play to Cade. We knew down there in the red zone they were gonna take Mike and Chris away so Cade had a one-on-one, the safeties were not even clued in on him. So he made a nice play, too.”

Godwin led the team with 53 yards on five receptions. A big improvement from the previous week were he was targeted just three times and had zero receptions.
