Tampa Bay enters its final game with nothing to play for other

Technically http://www.authenticstampabaybuccaneers.com/cheap-ryan-jensen-jersey , it’d be better for the Buccaneers to lose this game to preserve a higher selection but we don’t root for losses at Bucs Nation. Well, at least not me.This is likely the final game of the Dirk Koetter era for the Bucs. I can’t say that I’m too sad to see it end. It just never seemed like this staff could provide much development or put players in the best position to have success. Atlanta and Tampa Bay both entered the season with playoff aspirations. They’ll end the 2018 campaign as middle of the pack teams who each hold their fair share of issues. 1. Pressuring Matt RyanWhile the Falcons have struggled to move the ball on the ground since Devonta Freeman went down early in the season. That being said, Matt Ryan has still performed like vintage Matty Ice.The veteran quarterback has completed 69.2% of his passes while throwing 33 touchdowns to just six interceptions. Despite his performance, Ryan has been under pressure for most of the season, he’s been sacked 41 times. That should be the Bucs mantra on Sunday. Making Ryan as uncomfortable as possible with Jason Pierre-Paul pressuring his blindside. 2. Limiting Julio JonesAtlanta does have a few capable threats through the air but Julio Jones is without question the best. Jones has nearly double the amount of production as the Falcons No. 2 wide receiver, Calvin Ridley. The former Alabama star has 104 catches for 1,539 yards and seven touchdowns. Ridley and Mohamed Sanu have been good but they haven’t displayed the level of consistency as Jones. If the Bucs can limit an ailing Jones, they’ll give themselves more of a shot to stop Atlanta’s offense. 3. Finding success on the groundThe Falcons haven’t been very good on defense this year and one of its worst areas have been stopping the ground attack. Adversely Youth Jameis Winston Jersey , Tampa Bay has been extremely inconsistent running the ball all season. After finishing with 65 yards on the ground with an average of 2.6 yards per carry, the Bucs offensive line should being able to create more holes against an Atlanta defense that is the sixth worse in the NFL at defending the run. Peyton Barber isn’t an elite back, but he runs as hard as anyone in the league. 4. Protecting Jameis WinstonJameis Winston was under constant pressure a week ago against Dallas’ elite defensive front. He was sacked three times and under duress countless others. When Winston has time to deliver his passes, he’s shown that he can make plays through the air. Tampa Bay’s offensive line simply has to protect him long enough for that to happen. Atlanta has 36 sacks on the season and four different Falcons have five or more of them. They can bring pressure a variety of ways and this game will go a long way in determining the fate of Donovan Smith and Demar Dotson. 5. Limiting turnoversTampa Bay has been hinged by turnovers for most of the 2018 season and that was no different in Dallas. The Buccaneers lost two fumbles against the Cowboys, with one being returned for a touchdown in a seven point loss. Dirk Koetter’s team has committed a league high 34 turnovers in 15 games. On the flip side, Atlanta has forced just 18 turnovers all season. There’s no guarantee they won’t beat themselves again, but if the Bucs limit their turnovers, their odds of winning this game skyrocket. Jameis Winston and Marcus Mariota will be on the same practice field for a couple days http://www.authenticstampabaybuccaneers.com/cheap-caleb-benenoch-jersey , though their football careers will be forever linked.They practiced on the same field Wednesday for one period as Winston's Tampa Bay Buccaneers worked out with Mariota's Tennessee Titans. There wasn't time for any chit chat between them."I just know he's a great guy, and I just love seeing him out here competing," Winston said.NFL fans know more than that. They are both quarterbacks. They are both Heisman Trophy winners, and they were the first players drafted in 2015.But they didn't get a chance watch one another practice, much less catch up on things."It was separate, so I didn't really get a chance to go see him," Mariota said.The decision by Tampa Bay coach Dirk Koetter and first-year Titans coach Mike Vrabel for their teams to work out together before Saturday night's preseason game brought back up the Winston-Mariota debate.The two worked out together before the 2015 NFL draft out in California. Titans general manager Jon Robinson worked with Tampa Bay when the Buccaneers chose Winston as the No. 1 pick overall over Mariota. Now Robinson has Mariota as the first of those two quarterbacks not only to reach the playoffs but win a game once in the postseason."Mariota, he just does a great job and the Tennessee Titans have a good football team White Kwon Alexander Jersey ," Winston said. "We have a good football team too. We just have to win more games. It's always good to compete against guys, but he's done a great job here and I have to continue to work on my craft and lead our team to the playoffs."The Bucs will be without Winston for the first three games this season as the quarterback sits out a suspension for violating the NFL's personal conduct policy. The NFL announced the suspension in June after the league investigated an allegation Winston groped a female Uber driver in Arizona in March 2016.That's why Ryan Fitzpatrick started the Bucs' exhibition opener, a 26-24 win over Miami, and Winston worked with the second-team. Koetter said Fitzpatrick got the majority of the work with the Bucs' first-team offense when they worked on a separate field against the Titans' defense.Winston and Mariota will practice against each other again Thursday in the second of joint practices between the Bucs (1-0) and Titans (0-1). Then Fitzpatrick is expected to start again Saturday night.Koetter declined to compare where Winston and Mariota are now as quarterbacks going into their fourth seasons, happy with Winston."I'm not a good person to ask that, because I coach Jameis and I rarely get a chance to watch Marcus," Koetter said. "We know where Jameis is at, you've documented that many times. I can't compare the two because I rarely get to watch Marcus."Not only does Mariota have the edge over Winston in the NFL with a playoff victory Youth Carlton Davis Jersey , he also has two very big wins. Mariota and Oregon routed Winston and Florida State 59-20 in the College Football Playoff semifinal in January 2015 . Mariota also is 1-0 against Winston and the Bucs with a 42-14 win in the quarterbacks' NFL debut in 2015.The 2014 Heisman Trophy winner said he's never really been concerned with being linked to Winston during the pre-draft process or since. Mariota knows who he is and focuses on trying to improve himself."It's always kind of interesting our paths cross again," Mariota said. "But it is good to see him, and hopefully we'll just continue to find ways to get better and look back on it and just kind of laugh about it."Follow Teresa M. Walker at teresamwalker
