There are many obvious problems with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers offence, but according to Mike Evans, there is one that needs to be resolved right away.
At a press conference on Wednesday, Evans stated, “Penalties just teams beating us.” “They are simply defeating us. The Steelers were more physical than us last Sunday, so we need to raise our game and clean up our mistakes.
As Evans mentioned, penalties contributed to the Buccaneers’ lacklustre offensive performance in their Week 6 road defeat to the Pittsburgh Steelers. The Buccaneers’ performance on the offensive side of the ball was negatively impacted by their six total penalties for 45 yards, even if the Steelers did wind up having more fouls on the day. They made a number of careless penalties during the game, including two false starts.
Through six games this season, the Buccaneers have accrued 36 penalties for 293 yards overall. Furthermore, with 11, they have been reported for the second-most false starts.
Tampa Bay needs to fix a number of other offense-related issues, notably its persistent inability to successfully complete important third downs. With a third down conversion rate of 37.8%, they are ranked 22nd in the NFL.
With a potential road victory over the Carolina Panthers in Week 7, the Buccaneers will try to surpass the.500 mark.
