Buccaneers head coach and defensive coordinator Raheem Morris discussed the teams’ lack of sacks while the team is averaging two interceptions per game. Tampa Bay is second to last in the NFL with four sacks while the Bucs were leading the NFL in interceptions with six entering Week 4 of the season. While the Bucs rested during their bye week they were passed in the rankings by the Atlanta Falcons (eight) and San Diego Chargers (seven). The Pittsburgh Steelers, Philadelphia Eagles, and Cincinnati Bengals also have six interceptions on the season.

“I don’t know if it shows any thing right now. Its too early,” said Morris. “Usually when you got a bunch of picks the ball is either coming out too early or it is coming out late. Or whatever the case may be, it is coming out as the incorrect pass. The quarterbacks in this league are pretty accurate, so it could be a credit to the rush as well when you are talking about the interceptions to the sacks. We’d certainly like to get more sacks. We’d certainly like to be higher in both categories. That is a winning edge for us. It is just too early in the season (to make judgments).”
