Bucs will practice at RJS Friday to get familiar with the end zone



The end zone has been a dead zone for the Bucs at Raymond James Stadium this season.

In three home games, the Bucs have scored only three touchdowns, including just one in losses to the Steelers (38-13) and Saints (31-6). In fact, Tampa Bay is 29th in the NFL in scoring offense, averaging 16 points per game.

That's why coach Raheem Morris said he has decided to move Friday's practice to RJS in an attempt for his players to familiarize themselves with the end zone there.

"We're going to the stadium tomorrow,'' Morris said. "We've got to get that feel of scoring touchdowns in our end zone.

"We haven't even gotten to the point where we can get to our consistent running game. If we're able to get to our consistent running game and we're able to move the ball and move the chains with Josh Freeman throwing the football, when we get into the red zone, I think we'll get better and better.''
