Bucs route Browns

Team cuts down to 77 players

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers Jameis Winston played like he was in mid-season form going 16-25 for 259 yards and two touchdowns in one half of work against the Cleveland Browns in a 30-17 win Friday evening.  His counterpart, Robert Griffin III completed 8-14 passes for 119 yards and a touchdown. RG III had a familiar face on the receiving end as beleaguered player Josh Gordon made his preseason debut for the Browns but will still be out the first four games of the season for violation of drug policy.

“I feel really good to be out there with my teammates, my brothers, Gordon said.  “It was uplifting.”

Bucs 2Bucs receiver Mike Evans had five receptions for 115 yards including a 34-yard touchdown from Winston.  Kicker Roberto Aguayo recovered from his less than stellar prior performances where his missed three kicks and kicked field goals of 48, 21 and 27 yards on top of his three extra points.

“I had to focus, lock in and do what I used to do at Florida State,” Aguayo said. “On the professional level, you can make 30 kicks in a row, miss one and the one miss is all they’re going to talk about. I’m glad I went out and did my job. I’m very happy to help the team.”

The next game for the Bucs will be against the Washington Redskins on September 1st.  Plenty of great seats and affordable tickets are still available for that and all regular season games so be sure to grab yours today and help cheer on your Tampa Bay Buccaneers!

 

Buccaneers visit Texans, hope to keep them winless

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers are hoping to even up the series match up against the Houston Texans to two wins each.  The two teams have met three times with the Texans holding a 2-1 edge.

After keeping the New Orleans out of the win column last week, the Bucs still have a lot of work to do with Jameis Winston who recovered from a terrible week 1 (16-33 for 210 yards, 2 TD’s and 2 INT’s 2 sacks) to stun the Saints 26-19 by going 14-21 for 207 yards and a touchdown, as well as a touchdown on the ground…good for a 114 QB rating.

The Bucs will be facing a Texans team without the services of RB Arian Foster who is recovering from an groin injury that kept him out of the loss to the Panthers.

Plenty of great seats and affordable tickets are still available so be sure to get out on the road and support and cheer on your Tampa Bay Buccaneers!
