Lions-Buccaneers: A by-the-numbers look at Tampa Bay’s 24-21 loss

Here’s a by-the-numbers look at the Bucs’ 24-21 loss to the Lions on Sunday:

28

Seasons, out of 42, in which the Bucs have lost more games than they’ve won.

81.8

Lions quarterback Matthew Stafford’s completion percentage Sunday. He completed 36 of 44 passes for 381 yards. He threw one touchdown and two interceptions.

3

Quarterbacks, including Stafford, who have completed 80 percent of their passes against the Bucs this season. Carson Palmer and Drew Brees are the others. Tampa Bay is 0-3 in those games.

3

Times Jameis Winston turned the ball over (two interceptions, one fumble lost). He has committed 53 turnovers in 42 career games.

1-10

The Bucs’ record in games in which Winston has thrown multiple interceptions. (They beat the Cowboys 10-6 in 2015.)

5

Bucs giveaways. They’re the 12th team this season to commit that many turnovers. Each team lost. Tampa Bay has lost 10 straight games in which it has committed five or more turnovers.

114

Points the Bucs have scored in the fourth quarter. They’ve scored 55 in the first, 52 in the second and 43 in the third.

1

Fourth-quarter comeback wins by the Bucs.

3

Times Bucs opponents have engineered a game-winning drive in the fourth quarter or overtime (Bills, Packers and Lions).

68

Chris Godwin’s receiving yards, most on the Bucs. Running back Peyton Barber led the team with 41 receiving yards last week.

1

Times a Bucs receiver has gained 100 yards in a game. DeSean Jackson gained 106 in Week 6 against the Patriots.

5

Times a Bucs receiver gained 100 yards in a game last season. Mike Evans did it four times; Adam Humphries did it once.

5

Fumble recoveries by linebacker Lavonte David, the most ever by a Bucs defensive player in a single season. That’s also the most by any NFL defender since J.J. Watt in 2014.

3

Interceptions by cornerback Brent Grimes. He now has 33 career interceptions, fifth most among active players.

26-13

Combined record of the Bucs’ remaining opponents (Falcons, Panthers and Saints).

.509

Jon Gruden’s win percentage as head coach of the Bucs. He will be inducted into the team’s Ring of Honor next Monday night.

.448

Dirk Koetter’s win percentage as head coach of the Bucs. He will be in the locker room when Gruden is honored next Monday night.
