The Tampa Bay Buccaneers are 0-6 for the sixth time in franchise history and things don’t look like they will be turning around any time soon after a 31-23 loss at the hands of the Atlanta Falcons.
The loss was just another step in a downward spiral that looks Cheap Jerseys To Design to be bringing everyone down in Tampa Bay. According to JC De La Torre of SB Nation’s Buccaneers blog, Bucs Nation, the Cheap Jerseys Wholesale team has the losing bug:
A year after producing a league-best 52 sacks, the Rams defense is on pace to pull down opposing quarterbacks 41 times. Worse, the secondary is allowing 20 more passing yards per game than it did last year. The defense is on pace to allow 27 passing touchdowns this year, after allowing a total of just 16 last season. And this is the defense that was supposed to be better off under consolation prize coordinator Tim Walton.
New York Giants
The Giants won what might have been the worst Monday Night Football game in history. ESPN spent a cool $100 million to broadcast that mess. They probably made three times that on selling 30 second spots that provided a tacky musical accompaniment while we plied our eyeballs out with a butter knife. What, you didn’t do that too?
The defense was better, limiting Adrian Peterson to just 28 yards. That’s a positive sign for the Giants. Still, at 1-6, they have to think about 2014.
The Raiders had a bye last week. They’ll need the rest for a game against a slightly resurgent Steelers this week.
That probably wasn’t what Josh Freeman or the Vikings wanted to see in his debut. The worst part about it is that, in some small way, Greg Schiano has a tiny ounce of vindication. Freeman overthrew 16 passes, an NFL record. He only completed 20 of 53 passing attempts.
