No love for the defense on here?

Wow, unreal. The defense held it down today. One TD and 2 FG's for a team with an excellent offense. Carson didn't look comfortable for much of the game and that's attributed to this defense. They were flying to the ball, making sure tackles (except Bolden's wiff on C Johnson), and putting hats on the ball. Loved the energy today and hope it continues....

JasonOfthetower:
Definitely love for the D. FINALLY. We saw some old fashion Buccaneer defense out there today. They tackled well, they got some pressure on Palmer, they stuffed the run. The only thing they didn't do was cause turnovers...dropped three picks today (2 by Bolden)

DanTurksGhost:
Defense played very well, with a few exceptions. Very stout against the run. The three dropped INTs were disappointing, it could have given the young QB a short field to operate on, which could have made the game less close than it was. Credit the offense for helping the defense, too. They controlled the TOP, which any defender will tell you is critical to allowing them to play at a high level.

All good points.  Still a few missed tackles, which was frustrating, and missed turnover opportunities, but definitely back on the right track.

Maybe they need to be called out more often!
