The Tampa Bay Buccaneers won the Super Bowl last year. They started out 1-3, but after the fourth week of the season, the offense found its stride. They averaged over 33 points per game, and four of those games had over 40 points. Even though they had lost three of their first four games, the Buccaneers have won their last four, and the defending NFC champions look like the underdogs once again.
The Buccaneers’ defining moment was back in 2020. While most fans were too busy to see it, the Buccaneers finished the season with a win over the New Orleans Saints, and were crowned Super Bowl LV champs. That defining moment has relevance to today’s game against the Buffalo Bills. The team’s success in the playoffs has been a result of a strong defense.
Two players signed by the Buccaneers have been suspended or placed on injured reserve. They will not play in the final preseason game. The team also announced that defensive tackle Kenjon Barner will join the practice squad. Then, Rashard Robinson will begin a 21-day window. This window allows him to return to the active roster. In the meantime, Leverett and Watford will be on the practice squad.
