Make no mistake about it Youth Demar Dotson Jersey , this is a big game for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and if they can find a way to win, they will be a game out of the playoffs with three games remaining.These teams last faced off in week 1, where the Buccaneers picked up a 48-40 road win. Both teams wont put up a combined 88 points again, but if the Buccaneers who are currently 9 陆 point underdogs want to pull of the upset, here are the keys to the game. Win the turnover battle: I know, its cliche, but I think this is there only shot to win this game. Over the last two weeks, Tampa Bay is +6 in the turnover battle and what do you know, they are 2-0 in those games. The defense must force a mistake or two, whether it be a fumble or interception and the offense must take care of the football. You aren’t going to have a repeat performance of last Sunday when the defense forced four turnovers, but it needs to be similar to week one, where they forced two crucial fumbles.If the Buccaneers are +2 in the turnover margin http://www.buccaneersauthorizedshops.com/authentic-bryan-anger-jersey , they will have a chance to win this game in the fourth quarter. 2. Establish some sort of run game: Look, the Buccaneers won’t be a dominant running team the last four games of the season, but in order to beat the Saints, you need to keep Drew Brees off the field. Dirk Koetter cannot abandon the run game unless the team is down by multiple scores. If Peyton Barber can get 3-4 yards per carry throughout the game, especially on first downs that would be a huge success for this offense and would help set up one on one matchups on the outside in the play action passing game. Run the clock a bit more than usual in this one. 3. Red Zone defense: It’s no secret, the Saints will be able to move the ball against the Buccaneers defense. Heck, the Carolina Panthers had over 440 yards of offense last week, so there is no reason to think the Saints can’t do the same. The key will be holding them to field goals instead of touchdowns. The Buccaneers are allowing touchdowns on 85.37% of RZ trips this season, which is dead last in the NFL, by a wide margin. That cannot be the case on Sunday. 4. Don’t kill drives with penalties: This also isn’t a secret, the Buccaneers will be able to move the ball on Sunday. Too many times we have seen drives stall or result in field goals because of bad penalties on the offensive line. You cannot beat a 10-2 team by ruining drives with dumb penalties. Play smart clean football along the O-line and let Winston march the boys down the field. 5. Get some sort of pressure on Drew Brees:We saved possibly the most important aspect of the game for last. Drew Brees is one of the best quarterbacks in the league at getting the ball out quick. The defensive line needs to show up in this game for all four quarters and be relentless with their pass rush. You don’t necessarily have to get 4-5 sacks, but if you can effect some throws like they did last week Lavonte David Jersey , you will at least limit the big play ability from the Saints. The Buccaneers are heading into their 2018 home opener with a 1-0 record after last week’s 48-40 road win over the Saints. Obviously, numbers for certain players now look different than they did in the week one record book watch. With that in mind, let’s dive into where things stand ahead of Sunday’s game against the Eagles: Career Receiving YardsAfter putting up 147 yards last week against New Orleans, Mike Evans still sits in third place all-time with 4,726.

Two scores on Sunday would put No. 13 on top.Career ReceptionsEvans caught all seven of his targets last week, bringing him up to 316 receptions for his career. He is now five behind Mark Carrier (321) for second.Career Rushing TouchdownsThings stay the same this week as far as rushing touchdowns go. Peyton Barber, who has four with the Bucs, needs one on Sunday to pull into a tie for 20th all-time. Two touchdowns gets him to 15th and four brings him into a 14th-place tie with James Owens and Jameis Winston (eight).Jacquizz Rodgers has three rushing touchdowns as a Buc and needs one to tie for 25th. Two touchdowns gets him to 20th and three brings him up to 15th.Career TacklesLavonte David is firmly fourth all-time in tackles, but is inching his way up after picking up six last week. He is up to 553 in his career, which still leaves him 127 behind Hardy Nickerson (680) for third. With five tackles last week Authentic Chris Conte Jersey , Kwon Alexander is now 18th in franchise history with 242. He needs two tackles on Sunday to pass Mason Foster (243) for 17th, four to pass Chidi Ahanotu (245) for 16th and 12 to pass Martin Mayhew (253) for 15th. Gerald McCoy came up with one tackle last week to bring his career total to 202. With three on Sunday against Philadelphia, he passes Brad Culpepper (204) for 24th. Five tackles pulls him ahead of Simeon Rice (206) for 23rd. Career SacksMcCoy’s 48 1鈦? sacks place him third all-time.

He needs one to rise up to a tie for 15th and two to tie him for 12th. Career Passes Defended If he does play, Brent Grimes can add to his 35 passes defended with the Bucs. He needs 18 to pass Aqib Talib for fourth. He needs 26 to pass Derrick Brooks for third.David is one behind Grimes for fifth.Career Fumble RecoveriesThe Bucs recovered a couple of fumbles last week, but none were by David. The veteran is still in seventh with 11 fumble recoveries. One on Sunday gets him into a tie for fifth and two brings him into sole possession of fifth.Career Forced FumblesDavid’s 17 forced fumbles have him third all-time. He is just two behind Simeon Rice for second. Career SafetiesDavid has one career safety and needs one more to bring him into sole possession of the franchise record.Career Games PlayedSunday would be McCoy’s 111th career game with the Bucs, which ties him for 23rd-most in team history.If he suits up against the Eagles, Demar Dotson will be 32nd in franchise history with 102 career games played.Sunday will be David’s 93rd game with Tampa Bay, which ties him for 47th all-time.
