It wasn’t a good opening to the Bruce Arians era in Tampa Bay, as the Bucs lose 31-17 to the 49ers. The offense scores just one touchdown, gives up two pick-sixes, commits four turnovers and has two touchdowns called back on penalties.
Rick Stroud and Eduardo A. Encina break down the tough loss, which saw the defense play well — including getting a pick-six of their own from Vernon Hargreaves — and saw running back Ronald Jones play well. But, once again, the decision-making of Jameis Winston comes into question, as two interceptions were bad throws that shouldn’t have been made.
A look ahead at Bruce Arians’ first year in Tampa Bay and a critical season for Jameis Winston and the Buccaneers.
