Buccaneers vs Ravens: Thursday Injury Report

Battled and bruised, the Buccaneers are hurting heading into their match-up with the Ravens.

Justin Evans and Jason Pierre-Paul both did not participate in today’s practice along with DeSean Jackson who continues to nurse a thumb injury. Pierre-Paul has battled all season long and this weeks injury maintenance may hopefully be just that, maintenance and not a true downgrade from his limited participation Wednesday. Isaiah Johnson was upgraded to a limited participant as he recovers from...

Week 15 staff picks

Week 14 was a tough one.

Just because Tampa Bay’s season is pretty much over doesn’t mean the picks stop coming!

Fortunately, there is still plenty of good football left to observe in 2018. We haven’t abandoned the Bucs, but you can easily forgive someone if their attention turns elsewhere for the time being.

Let’s turn our attention to this week’s picks.

Crash and burn: Kyle Marks posted a season-worst 5-11 mark in Week 14.

How did the Bucs grade out in Week 14?

It was a fun two weeks while it lasted.....

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers’ season all but ended this past Sunday with a loss against the New Orleans Saints.

After winning back-to-back games against the San Francisco 49ers and Carolina Panthers, the Bucs were able to get out to a 14-3 lead at halftime, but couldn’t do anything in the second half to put the game away.

But don’t worry, the grades will continue even though the writing is officially on the wall for 2018.

Bucs selected to play outside the U.S. in 2019

Tampa Bay will be the host team.

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers will have one less home game at Raymond James Stadium in 2019. Why? The NFL is sending them outside the country to play host to another team as part of the league’s International series.

This was part of the deal when the 2021 Super Bowl was awarded to the bay area.

This series has been a huge opportunity for the league to continue to grow internationally. Buccaneers’ Chief Operating Officer Brian Ford had this to say via the...

Players of the Week: vs. New Orleans

Which five players were Tampa Bay’s best in Sunday’s 28-14 loss to the Saints?

The Buccaneers watched their already-slim playoff hopes fade away on Sunday as they imploded in the second half of a 28-14 home loss to the Saints. Tampa Bay looked like a solid team for most of the first half, but before too long, penalties and special teams miscues turned momentum. The offense was shut out in the second half, largely due to an ugly effort from the offensive line. The defense continued to...

Division Recap: Week 14

After a surprising loss a week ago, everything fell in the Saints’ favor this week.

When the Buccaneers were the only NFC South team to win in week 13, it felt pretty unusual. Things got back to normal in week 14, with Tampa Bay losing and everything going the Saints’ way. With a Carolina loss, New Orleans was able to clinch the division before its game was even over. The Saints went on to win anyway, effectively ending the Bucs’ playoff hopes.

Buccaneers vs Saints: Day-After-Game Reactions

The Saints may have delivered the final blow to this Buccaneer season on Sunday.

The Buccaneers blew an 11 point lead at half-time and looked like a team struggling for answers in the second half. With the team picking up it’s 8th loss of the season the Buccaneers leave Sunday with even more questions than before. The defense did a solid job against a potent New Orleans offense and the offense fell flat on it’s face in the second half. Let’s take a look and react to what went down on...

Yarcho’s Pick Six: Curtain Closes On A Disappointing Season

Bucs dominate first half only to implode in 28-14 loss to Saints

Pack it in. Close it up. It’s a wrap. The slim postseason hopes the Buccaneers had kept alive with their back-to-back wins evaporated when the offense imploded in the second half, allowing the Saints to overcome a 14-3 halftime deficit in route to a 28-14 win, clinching the NFC South title.

The fact of the matter is, the Saints made halftime adjustments and the Bucs did not. The offense had less than 100 yards in the second...
